Dryness affects over 50% of the population in Australia.

There are many causing factors including the environment, sleep patterns, hormonal factors, lid abnormalities, systemic health issues and many more.

There are a various range of treatment options available depending on the cause and severity of the condition.

We use state of the art technology to assess the cause and severity of the condition which helps us manage it as best as possible.

Some of these treatment options include:
– Various specialised drops, gels, creams and prescription eye drops
