July Dry Eye Awareness Month 🌍💙

👁️July marks Dry Eye Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about Dry Eye Syndrome (DES), a condition that affects millions of people worldwide. This campaign is committed to promoting health equality and ensuring that everyone has access to the healthcare they need. As part of this awareness campaign, it is important to highlight that while DES affects all ages, it is especially prevalent among older adults.

What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry Eye Syndrome occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when the tears evaporate too quickly. This can lead to inflammation and damage to the eye’s surface, causing discomfort and vision problems. Symptoms of DES include:

  • Persistent dryness
  • Itching or burning sensations
  • Redness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • The Impact on Older Adults

While DES can affect individuals of all ages, older adults are particularly vulnerable. As we age, tear production tends to decrease, and the quality of tears can diminish, leading to higher incidences of DES. Factors such as hormonal changes, medication side effects, and pre-existing health conditions can exacerbate these issues.


Promoting Equality in Eye Care

At Azurite Health, we believe that equality in healthcare means recognizing and addressing the unique challenges faced by different segments of the population. For older adults, this involves:

  • Raising Awareness: Educating patients and caregivers about the signs and symptoms of DES is crucial. Awareness leads to early detection and timely intervention. Learn more about DES from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
  • Accessible Treatments: Ensuring that treatment options are accessible and tailored to the needs of older adults. This includes over-the-counter artificial tears, prescription medications, and innovative treatments like punctal plugs or intense pulsed light therapy. Explore treatment options on the NHS website.
  • Holistic Approach: Considering the overall health and lifestyle of older patients. Factors such as diet, hydration, and managing underlying health conditions are essential components of managing DES. The National Eye Institute provides valuable information on managing DES.
  • Support Systems: Providing support through community resources, support groups, and counselling. Encouraging family involvement can also enhance the care and support that older adults receive. Find support through the Dry Eye Foundation.


Dry Eye Awareness Month is an opportunity to shine a light on a condition that, while common, can significantly impact the quality of life, especially for older adults. Together, we can enhance the well-being of those affected by Dry Eye Syndrome and ensure that everyone has access to the resources and support they need. 🌐

Let's make a difference this July and beyond, raising awareness and promoting inclusivity in eye care. 💙 🌟
