Dry Eye assessments (coming soon)

During your visit, our Optometrist will begin by conducting a thorough examination of your dry eyes. This starts with a comprehensive assessment of your medical history and symptoms, providing valuable insights into potential underlying causes. Next, we carefully examine the ocular surface and eyelids to determine which layer of the tear film is contributing to your dry eyes.

Based on our findings, our optometrist will then discuss the available treatment options tailored to manage your specific symptoms. It’s important to note that while treatment can alleviate symptoms, dry eyes are often a chronic condition, and management is focused on symptom relief rather than a complete cure.

Rest assured that our team is dedicated to providing effective solutions and ongoing support for your dry eye symptoms. We are committed to improving your comfort and quality of life.

Dry eye is a common condition that typically affects both eyes but not always. Most people will experience a mixture of the following symptoms:
– Eyes feel irritated or uncomfortable
– The feeling of something in the eye e.g. an eyelash
– Watery eyes
– Intermittent blurring in vision
– Burning or stinging sensations
– Discomfort with contact lens wear
