If you suffer with gritty, tired, uncomfortable eyes then you may benefit from a visit to the dry eye clinic.
What is Dry Eye?
Dry Eye is a recognised common condition of the eyelids and tear glands and results in a variety of unpleasant symptoms and potential damage to the eye. There is no cure but symptoms can be reduced dramatically with the right treatment. The degree of symptoms will vary from person to person and will be affected by environment, age, medication and general health.
How we help
At your dry eye consultation your tear function and the health of your eyelids will be examined and treatment will be recommended to promote the health and comfort of your eyes. Artificial tears can be the first line of therapy but this line of action only treats your symptoms rather than the actual cause so further treatments will be recommended that will allow your own tears to work at their best.
