Do you have a film over your vision?

If you have filmy vision that seems to come and go, you may have dry eye. In order for clear vision, our tears need to completely cover the front of our eyes (cornea). If they don’t, light scatters more when entering the eye, causing blur and appearance of “filmy vision.” This filmy vision comes and goes due to blinking. Blinking restores an even layer of tears to the corneal surface. Things like extended computer use or reading decreases our blink rate. This causes our tears to break up more frequently–causing filmy vision. So annoying!
