DRY EYE DISEASE MANAGEMENT
What is Dry Eye Disease?
Dry eye disease is a common condition that happens when your tears don’t adequately lubricate your eyes.
Common causes of dry eye disease include:
Some diseases, including Sjogren’s Syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis
Excessive screen time
If not treated, dry eye disease can lead to infection and poor vision. For moderate cases, moisturising eye drops called artificial tears can provide temporary relief. However, other treatments are also available.
Gritty feeling on the eye
Excessive tear production
Blurred vision/light sensitive
Sore and swollen eyelids
Are artificial tears the only treatment for dry eye?
A thorough eye exam is needed to identify the root cause of dry eye disease. Optometrist Dr. Wendy Ng will help develop a tailored treatment plan that provides the best possible results. Contact us to book your appointment today.
