Mask Associated Dry Eye

What is MADE?

Mask associated dry eye is caused by the air flow that would usually be dispelled outwards being forced upwards over the eye. When your eyes are exposed to increased amounts of wait it can cause the tears in your eyes to evaporate and become dry.

  1. Make sure your mask fits well.
  2. Use eye drops where appropriate.
  3. Limit your time in dry environments.
  4. Talk to your optician.
