Have you ever felt that scratchy, uncomfortable sensation in your eyes as if you"ve just walked through a desert storm? That, my friends, is what we call dry eye.

And who knew tears were so complex? They're not just water-they come with oils and mucus for smooth sailing across your eyeball's surface.

So, when there's a tear production party foul, it's like your eyeball's very own dry spell. And nobody wants that, do they?

Sometimes, the things we love can turn against us-like cozying up in an air-conditioned room or binging that latest TV series (hello, screen time!). Even that gusty wind you enjoy on a car ride can be plotting against your eyes.

But don't worry-by knowing your enemy, you stand a fighting chance. So let's get to know those culprits better, shall we?

Armed with the knowledge of what triggers dry eye, you"ve got power! Small changes can make a massive difference, like taking breaks during a Netflix marathon or using a humidifier to combat dry indoor air.

Making these tweaks not only shows some love to your eyes but could also reduce the need for interventions down the line. Trust us, your future self will thank you for it.

When lifestyle changes just don't cut it, iTear100 has your back with the iTEAR100 device. FDA-cleared, this little wonder is your at-home hero for kicking dry eye to the curb, all without a single drop or drug!
