Dry Eye is a common condition that occurs when the eyes don’t make enough tears, or the tears dry too quickly. Often it is a natural symptom of aging but there are also other contributing factors such as if you; wear contact lenses; use a PC regularly; are taking certain medications; going through hormonal changes; spending time in hot or windy climates.
Dry Eye has a wide variety of symptoms and people often don’t realise their eyes are dry.
These symptoms can include:
- Painful, sore, gritty or burning eyes
- Foreign Body sensation
- Eye redness
- Blurred vision
- Eyes feeling tired or fatigued
- Watery eyes
- Intolerance of contact lenses
- Sensitivity to light
During your assessment we will perform a full ocular examination, diagnose the type of dry eye you have and determine what treatment you require.
Treatment options include
The treatment you will require is determined by the type and severity of dry eye that you have.
We may also ask you to perfom some treatments at home and we may prescribe you medications such as anti-inflammatory drops or steroids or, in some cases, a course of oral antibiotics.
At the end of the assessment you will be provided with a treatment plan that is tailor made for you.
