Millions of people suffer from dry eyes, yet in the majority of cases it goes undiagnosed. Often this is because dry eye symptoms are misunderstood. Understanding the causes and symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome and receiving the correct treatment, can help you enjoy more comfortable, clearer vision.
If you feel like you could be suffering from dry eyes, knowing the symptoms can help towards a solution. These include:
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.
Our Vision Care Plan members can benefit from receiving initial access to our Dry Eye Clinic at a reduced cost. As well as this perk, our members can feel the reassurance of our plan including emergency appointments and further clinical tests as required. Interested in joining?
