Dry Eye Management

Do your eyes suffer from any of the following symptoms?

  • Itchiness
  • Watering
  • Burning
  • Stinging
  • Grittiness
  • Redness

If you answered yes to any of the above, you may be suffering from dry eyes, and we recommend you arrange an appointment for a Dry Eye Assessment.

Examination of the front of your eye using a special magnifying instrument called a ‘slit-lamp biomicroscope’ can be used to diagnose the condition and determine the underlying cause. Often, this is attributed to blocked glands of the upper and lower eyelids, or a minor inflammatory problem. Our highly skilled optometrists will recommend a simple treatment program, and/or eyedrops to alleviate your symptoms.

We also offer a more specialist option called ‘Punctal plugging’, used to help the eye to retain the natural tears for the treatment of more severe, longstanding dry eyes.
