Dry eye or keratoconjunctivitis sicca affects 15-17% of the total population in Germany. It is a multifactorial disorder of the tear film and the surface of the eye. An intact tear film is essential for healthy eyes because it wets the surface of the eye, keeps it smooth and supple, flushes out foreign bodies and protects against bacterial infections. In addition, the cornea and conjunctiva are supplied with oxygen and nutrients. If the quality or quantity of the tear film is disturbed, typical symptoms such as tired, burning, itchy and scratchy eyes, increased tear flow, sensitivity to light, reddening of the conjunctiva or a feeling of dryness arise. Dry eye is a chronic disease that should be treated early in order to avoid consequential damage to the surface of the eye.® MULTI - proven for more than 20 years. The preparation can be used for daily moistening in all forms of dry eye. VISMED ® MULTI is free from preservatives and therefore very well tolerated - even for chronic complaints with damaged lacrimal glands.

HORMONAL CHANGES Pregnant women and women going through menopause are subject to hormonal fluctuations and changes. These can promote dry eyes and cause unpleasant complaints. DISEASES Dry eye risk factors such as diabetes mellitus, dermatological and rheumatic diseases, as well as irradiation of the head influence the production of the tear film. The use of certain medications can also negatively affect the tear fluid.

SCREEN ACTIVITIES The terms “office eye syndrome” and “gamer eye” are common. They apply to people who keep looking at the screen for long periods of time.
