Treatment can relieve the discomfort associated with dry eyes, such as burning, itching, and grittiness.
Proper tear production is important for clear vision, and treatment can help improve visual clarity by ensuring the eyes remain properly lubricated.
Dry eyes can lead to corneal damage and other complications if left untreated. Treatment can help prevent this and maintain overall eye health.
Dry eye is a common condition in which the eyes do not produce good quality tears.
Irritable gritty feeling eyes, red eyes, watery eyes or vision that blurs quickly are very common symptoms.
There are many causes of dry eyes including poor tear production, impaired oily layer of tears, dietary deficiencies, allergies and other medical conditions. Specialised investigations to identify these include meibography, tearfilm analysis and corneal topography. These can then help tailor a treatment plan which can improve both the speed and extent of recovery. Specialised treatments can include lipiflow, punctal plugs and microblepharoexfoliation. Some patients require specialist prescriptions for medicines not commonly prescribed.
