Dry Eye Clinic
Do you suffer from dry, gritty, red, irritable, watery eyes?
In a healthy eye, tears are responsible for the smooth eye surface which allows clear vision. Tears also clean and lubricate the eye. When you blink a fresh layer of tears, called the Tear Film, spreads over the eye. The tear film is important for keeping the eye moist and comfortable. Sometimes, the eye may stop producing enough tears or tears evaporate too quickly causing Dry Eyes.
Dry Eye is one of the most common eye complaints affecting more than 20% of adults over 45yrs (Brewitt, 2001), but it can affect any age group.
Lee Opticians was one of the first practices in Northern Ireland to open a specialist Dry Eye Clinic and we have just taken delivery of the first K5 in Northern Ireland. This state-of-the-art piece of equipment is used to perform an extensive assessment to establish the form of Dry Eye present and the appropriate management required.
