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.
Do you suffer from any of the following eye symptoms:
- Fluctuations in vision
- Feeling of sand or grit in the eye
- Contact lens discomfort
- Light sensitivity
- Watery eyes
- Tired eyes
If you said yes to two or more of these symptoms you may have a problem with dry eyes.
People with these symptoms often assume they are caused by external irritants or that they are just an unavoidable part of life. In fact, dryness occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears, or your tears are of poor quality. This can happen for a number of reasons, including aging, hormonal changes, eyelid problems, side effects of diseases or medications, and other causes.
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 a meaningful measurement of the health and stability of the tear film.
Each diagnosis is completely unique to the individual, and our treatment recommendations will be specific to you.
