Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry Eye Syndrome

20% of the population suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome.  In Canberra, we live in a very dry climate and this is a contributing factor to the high number of people suffering with Dry Eyes.  Dry Eye Syndrome occurs when either not enough tears are produced or those that are produced are of poor quality. Modern life style can make the symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome worse. These include air conditioning, working on computers, driving a car and wearing contact lenses.Symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome:

  • Sore eyes
  • Burning eyes
  • Scratchiness
  • Stinging eyes
  • Excessive tears
  • Blurry vision
  • Grittiness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Trouble with glare

All of these symptoms make us miserable.  At Mackinley Optical, we are so passionate about resolving Dry Eye Syndrome that we have established the Dry Eye Clinic.  The Dry Eye Clinic’s sole purpose is to find a suitable solution for our Dry Eye patients.  For more information, visit www.thedryeyeclinic.com.au.
