Dry Eye Clinic
Do you suffer with dry, gritty or watery eyes?
Dry eye syndrome can affect anyone, and it occurs when there is a problem with the tear film that normally keeps the eye moist and lubricated. It can occur because of various conditions.
Who gets dry eyes and what causes it?
Dry eyes are a problem that becomes more common with increasing age.
There are many causes, some include:
- Blepharitis (inflammation of eyelids)
- Computer use
- Contact lens wear
- Hormonal changes
What are the symptoms of dry eyes?
- Burning, stinging or itching
- Blurred vision
- Irritation from wind or smoke
- Tired eyes
- Red eyes
- Excessive watering
- Photophobia (sensitivity to light)
- Contact lens discomfort
The dry eye clinic can manage the condition by examining the health of the eye in more detail. Mohamed and his staff have trained extensively with Spectrum Thea to provide excellence in this area.
What is the Dry Eye Clinic?
It involves identifying factors that cause the condition including other associated problems such as blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction, and red eye conditions.
Once your eyes have been examined in detail, a range of suitable products will be recommended to relieve and manage the symptoms. Follow-up visits enable us to monitor how well you are benefiting from the prescribed plan.
(Your eyes may need to be examined prior to your dry eye clinic appointment if you have not had them tested at our centre.)
