Dry eye assessments

Dry eye syndrome or dry eye disease, is a very common condition that occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or the tears evaporate too quickly. This leads to the surface of the eyes drying out and becoming irritated and possibly inflamed. Although there is no cure for dry eye syndrome, targeted treatments are available to help control the symptoms. These depend on whether the symptoms are caused by the decreased production of tears, tears that evaporate too quickly, or an underlying condition. We have recently invested in the Oculus Keratograph 5M, which incorporates the latest technology for tear film assessment. This allows us to investigate the cause and provide an individualised treatment plan.
