Dry Eye

Do your eyes sting and burn?

Are your eyes red, itchy, watery, or sensitive to light? You could have Dry Eye Disease.

Dry Eye Disease is an extremely common eye condition where the eye produces fewer or poor-quality tears, preventing adequate lubrication to the eye. This can have a large impact on your day-to-day activities.

At Melbourne Eyecare Clinic we provide a holistic approach to Dry Eye Disease assessment and management, which involves a range of Dry Eye tests and includes evaluation of lifestyle and environmental factors to identify the underlying cause of symptoms.

During our examination we will evaluate the quality, quantity, and production of tears, determine the type of Dry Eye you have, and provide a tailored management plan to help manage and reduce symptoms. The diagnosis and management of Dry Eye Disease can be complex, and we have access to dedicated Dry Eye equipment and tools, such as LipiView, LipiFlow, punctal plugs, and much more, to facilitate this process.
