DRY EYE TREATMENTs
Dry eye syndrome occurs as a result of insufficient tear production, which leads to an inadequate lubrication of the eye necessary to maintain a healthy eye surface. The condition may present with chronic symptoms such as irritation and discomfort, dryness, and sensitivity to light. Other factors which can induce the condition include age, environmental conditions, certain medications and long-term use of contact lenses. Advanced dry eye syndrome can damage the surface layer of the eye with the potential to impair vision. The Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide and may have a relevant influence on their daily life. For a long time there have been no effective therapies to treat it with stable and durable effects. A wide variety of lubricating eye drops and ointments are available to sufferers of dry eye. Hope Island Optical employs the latest diagnostic equipment and treatment available, including IPL and Rexon-eye. Your optometrist will advise you on the appropriate management of dry eyes.
