Abstract

Keratoconjunctivitis sicca is consistent layer of tears on the surface of the eye is commonly referred as Dry Eye Syndrome (DES), which is due to the deficiency in lachrymal gland. It is due to the insufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Consequences of dry eyes range from constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye. This syndrome may affect both the cornea and conjunctiva. A recent research revealed that nearly 48 percent of Americans of age 18 and old people experience dry eye symptoms. According to research in Japan, more than 75 percent of women who routinely use a computer at work may suffer from dry eye disease. This paper proposes a remedy for Dry Eye Disease using an active device called Wearable Dry Eye Humidifier. It outweighs the other proposed systems because it is an active device which can self regulate according to the temperature and humidity levels of the eye.
