In medical terms, Dry Eye is lovingly known as "KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS SICCA". The tear film consists of 3 layers: A superficial lipid (oily) layer which decreases evaporation, a middle aqueous layer which contributes 90% of the tear film, and a deep mucin layer which facilitates spreading of the tears over the cornea.
