Dry Eyes

Do your eyes suffer from:

  • Burning sensation
  • Gritty feeling and tiredness
  • Watering
  • Stinging sensation; often sensitive to light
  • Uncomfortable contact lenses

If the answer is “Yes” to any of the above, you could well benefit from the Eyewise Dry Eye Care Programme.

The term “dry eye” is self-explanatory- eyes that aren’t fresh, moist and comfortable.

This is a problem that affects many people, but post-menopausal women and people who wear contact lenses are particularly susceptible to it.

Your eyes can become dry in centrally-heated or air-conditioned rooms, and on aeroplanes. Long stretches working in front of a computer can dry your eyes because you don’t blink as often as normal.

Common signs of chronic dry eyes are:

  • Discomfort
  • Foreign body sensation
  • Redness
  • Fatigue
  • Discomfort with contact lenses

At Eyewise, we can now offer you a Dry Eye Assessment, which takes an in-depth view of all the factors that may be contributing to the problem.

Recommendations can be made to alleviate your symptoms by means of a care programme, supervised by your own Eyewise “Ocular Eyegienist”.

Recommendations may include one or more of the following:

  • Lubricating eye drops
  • Heat compresses to enable better tear production
  • Lid massage techniques to help with the above
  • Blink exercise routine to help promote more tears
  • Advice on practical solutions within your home or work environment to minimize the causes of dry eye syndrome

There is NO need to live with dry, red, irritated, uncomfortable eyes.

Simply ask our expert Optometrists for advice and help on how to get relief from them.
