Air Travel and Dry Eye: What You Need to Know

For those who frequently fly, air travel can be both exciting and taxing, especially on the eyes. The high altitudes and cabin pressure combined with low humidity levels can lead to what's known as 'air travel dry eye'. More than just an inconvenience, this condition can cause significant discomfort and irritation. Here we explore the causes, symptoms, and methods of managing dry eye caused by air travel, including the innovative solution provided by iTEAR100, part of our lifestyle-adaptive eye care.

Understanding Air Travel Dry Eye

Air travel dry eye occurs when the eye does not produce enough tears, or when the tears evaporate too quickly. In the confined space of an airplane cabin, the air circulation system is designed to keep passengers safe and comfortable, but it can lack sufficient humidity, leading to eye discomfort. Symptoms may include a feeling of dryness, grittiness, or a burning sensation in the eyes.

Being aware of the early signs of dry eye can make a world of difference when it comes to preventing long-term issues. Common symptoms include a stinging or burning sensation, redness, blurred vision, and a feeling as if something is in your eye. If you experience any of these symptoms during or after a flight, you may be suffering from air travel-related dry eye.

When traveling, watch for these common indicators:

  • Itchy eyes
  • Unusual sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Watery eyes, which is the body's response to irritation

If over-the-counter solutions and changes in habits do not alleviate your symptoms, it's essential to seek help from a professional. Persistent dry eye can lead to more severe conditions if left unaddressed.

Even after disembarking, dry eye can affect daily activities such as reading, using a computer, or driving, particularly at night. It's important to manage these symptoms effectively to maintain quality of life.

Protecting Your Eyes While Flying

While airborne, there are several steps you can take to protect your eyes from dryness. Try to blink more often, wear protective eyewear, such as glasses or moisture chamber goggles, and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and beverages high in caffeine, as they can contribute to dehydration.

To prevent or alleviate dry eye symptoms, simple tips can be employed during your flight. These tips are designed to supplement tear production and maintain eye comfort.

Consider these in-flight strategies to help keep your eyes moist:

  • Use preservative-free artificial tear drops
  • Apply a warm compress to your eyes to stimulate tear production
  • Take breaks from screen time by closing your eyes for a few minutes

Keeping your body well-hydrated is crucial. Drink water regularly, as dehydration can exacerbate dry eye symptoms.

Direct the overhead air vent away from your face. This can help to reduce the likelihood of tears evaporating too quickly from the surface of your eyes.
