What You Must Know About Dry Eye: How to Prevent, Stop or Reverse Dry Eye Disease, by Jeffrey Anshel, OD ISBN 9780757004797
Five out of five stars
Even if you do not suffer from dry eye, this book is worth reading for the information about the functioning of eyes. Even the thin layer of liquid protection on the exposed surface of the eyeball is an extremely complicated structure. Until I read this book, I had no knowledge of this. One fact that seemed obvious in retrospect is that the blink reflex is the fastest reflex in the human body.
While dry eye can lead to difficulties and can require medical attention, in nearly all cases it can be treated and even cured by performing some basic actions. This includes diet, topical liquids and over the counter and prescription drugs. Dry eye is a condition that you can have without realizing it, so this book is also valuable as an element of awareness.
Many popular books about medical conditions are full of fluff and questionable claims regarding treatments. This is one that rises above that and is worthy of being kept on your shelf of medical books for reference purposes.
