Listen as Dr. Latkany explains dry eye, the symptoms, causes and treatment from questions asked by women on EmpowHer.

Hi, and thank you for joining us, and lots of women have been coming to EmpowHer, the home of women’s health online, to learn more about dry eye. And that’s why we are joined by Dr. Robert Latkany from the Dry Center at Physician Eye Care of New York. Doctor, thank you so much for joining us here at EmpowHer.

Dr. Robert Latkany:
Thank you for having me.

Now I know your book The Dry Eye Remedy is available on Amazon, but what exactly is dry eye, and is it singular or plural?

Dr. Robert Latkany:
Good question, no one has ever asked that before, but it is plural and dry eyes basically is not having enough moisture to cover the surface of your eye, and that’s because you either not make enough tears or you have poor quality tears, or it could be combination of the two. More often than not, it has to do with the poor quality of your tears.
