Visit the opticians that offers clinics dedicated to treating dry eye syndrome

If you’ve never heard of dry eye syndrome before you’d be forgiven; you’d also join 89% of the British population who are not aware of the condition.

Dry eye syndrome occurs when the eyes are no longer lubricating themselves properly. There are a number of reasons for this including tiredness, incorrect use of contact lenses, medication,  long periods of time spent in front of the TV or computer, and air conditioning.

Despite being referred to as ‘dry eye’ syndrome, the condition actually has a number of undesirable symptoms such as:

  • Soreness
  • Itchiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • A gritty sensation
  • Excessive watering 
  • Redness of the eyes and/or surrounding area

It is estimated that 1 in 3 individuals over the age of 65 will suffer from dry eye syndrome at some stage in their life. If you are 65 or above you are therefore strongly recommended to visit your optician once a year to ensure your eyes are in good health.

Like most medical conditions, dry eye syndrome affects different people in different ways; it can also be harder to treat the longer you leave it to develop.
