If you are suffering with any of the following you may have a common tear problem known as dry eye. With the right diagnosis and treatment most people find that it is relatively easy to alleviate.
- Watery eyes?
- Tender eyelids?
- Gritty sandy sensations?
- Irritated red eyes?
- Burning, stinging?
- White stringy threads in tears?
- Dandruff along eyelashes?
Dry eye occurs when your tear flow reduces or your tears evaporate too quickly, causing the sensitive front surface of the eye to dry out. The eyes then become uncomfortable, red & inflamed and in some cases very sore.
At the dry eye clinic we will consider your symptoms, undertake a detailed specialist examination of your tears, recommend the latest treatments to alleviate your symptoms and ensure that you leave knowing exactly how to treat your particular condition with a bespoke care plan. We will then invite you to return for follow up appointments.
The clinic also offers management of common eyelid problems like Blepharitis.
