Dry Eye assessments (coming soon)

During a dry eye assessment at our centre, our Optometrist will begin by gathering a comprehensive history and carefully noting your symptoms. This detailed evaluation will provide valuable insights into the potential causes of your dry eyes. Next, we will examine the ocular surface and eyelids to identify the specific layer of the tear film that may be contributing to your dryness. Based on these findings, our optometrist will then discuss the available treatment options to effectively manage your symptoms. It’s important to note that while treatment cannot provide a permanent cure for dry eyes in most cases, it can significantly alleviate and manage the symptoms you experience. Our goal is to provide you with comprehensive care to improve your comfort and overall eye health.

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
