Dry Eye Clinic

Dry Eye Syndrome affects approximately 20% of the Australian adult population. It occurs when there is a problem with the tear quality, tear composition, tear production, or tear distribution. The following are some of the most common causes of dry eyes:

- Blinking insufficiently and gazing for long periods of time, especially when using a computer or other electronic equipment.
- An imbalance of water, mucus, and oil that comprise the tears.
- A problem with the tear ducts that interferes with the production and release of tears
- Eyelid issues, such as lids that turn too far in (entropion) or out (ectropion) Antihistamines, acne drugs, hormone replacement therapy, and high blood pressure medications amongst many other regular medications.

  • Stinging and Pain
  • Grittiness (foreign body sensation)
  • Watering
  • Burning
  • Red eyes
  • Eye fatigue
  • The fluctuating vision between blinks
  • Photosensitivity (feeling sensitive to light).
