What is dry eye?

Dry eye syndrome occurs when your eyes don’t make enough tears or if your tear film can’t be maintained.

It can be an age or health related eye condition associated with diabetes, thyroid conditions, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis or Sjogrens Disease. There is also a link with menopause and dry eye.

Dry eye syndrome can also be linked with prolonged use of digital devices, contact lens wear, dry or windy environments, air conditioning or heating, smoking, medications and eyelid problems.

Dry Eye Treatment

Unfortunately, dry eye cannot be cured.  You may require ongoing management to relieve your symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of dry eyes may prevent the disease from progressing. Here are some more dry eye causes.

Correct diagnosis of the cause of the dry eye is important so that we can recommend the correct treatment for you.  Dry eye treatments include artificial tears, increased blinking, hot compresses, lid hygiene, Omega 3 supplements, improved environment, protective glasses/sunglasses, prescription eye drops or surgery.

If you experience more severe dry eye symptoms, we can perform relieving lid scrubs in our practice.
