Do your eyes feel dry or irritated? Do certain activities, like reading or computer use make your eyes feel scratchy? Have you found your contact lenses are gradually becoming less comfortable and your wearing time has decreased? Do your eyes water excessively?
If you answer yes to one or more of these questions then you may have dry eyes. This is a common problem but you don’t have to live with it! This condition is related to the quality and quantity of the tears produced.
This can be affected by many factors:
- Eyelid abnormalities
- Various environmental factors
- Allergic response
- Hormonal imbalance
Persistent symptoms of dry eyes or excessively watery eyes can be miserable. If you are suffering please arrange a dry eye assessment.
