Treating dry eyes

Posted on 09th October 2020

The huge increase in individuals working from home has resulted in an increase in patients getting in touch to ask for advice on dry eyes. It might be that people are spending more time on their devices, or that their working environment isn’t set up as well as in the office.

The important thing is not to suffer in silence. Make an appointment with your optometrist and we can go through the options with you, which include:

  1. Lifestyle advice

  2. Dietary modifications

  3. Eyelid treatments, including using heat packs

  4. Artificial tear drops

  5. Prescription only medications

  6. Moisture chamber goggles

  7. Punctal occlusion (plugs)

  8. Lacrimal syringing

  9. Treatment for demodex blepharitis

  10. Specialist contact lenses

We can advise on the best options for you. Visit our Tear Clinic page for further information.
