Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome is a common problem which results from either poor quality tears or reduced tear production. The normal function of tears is to lubricate the surface of the eye. Dry eye means the tears evaporate more quickly leaving the front surface of the eye exposed, subsequently leading to dryness.

The symptoms of dry eye include: 

  • Gritty sensation
  • Excessive watering
  • Photophobia (light sensitivity)
  • Blurred vision
  • Burning, stinging or itching
  • Redness
  • Tiredness 
We are able to evaluate the quality of your tears using both simple diagnostic tests and advanced tear film analysis. This enables us to offer advice and treatments to help reduce your dry symptoms.
