Our Dry Eye Clinic

Often people think that dry eyes are due to external irritants, however, this isn’t always the case. Dry eyes can occur by your eyes not producing enough tears, or that your tear quality isn’t good enough. This can be for several reasons, such as hormonal changes, ageing or even side effects of medications. All Dipple & Conway clients can benefit from access to our Dry Eye Clinic by booking a Tear Film Assessment. During the assessment, we use the latest breakthrough technology, including the Tearlab Osmolarity Test to aid diagnosis. Using a very small sample of tears from each eye, the Tearlab gives objective results immediately, and meaningful measurement of the health and stability of the tear film.
