Dry Eyes

Up to 30% of Australians suffer from dry eyes. Are you one of them?

Dry eyes is one of the most underdiagnosed eye diseases even though it is quite a common one, the reason for which is people often attribute dry eyes to the normal part of aging or a symptom of allergies. However, chronic dry eyes, if left untreated, may not only be irritating but can cause serious damage to the eyes.

Some facts about dry eyes:

  • 70% of dry eyes is due to Meibomian gland dysfunction
  • Women are more frequently affected than men (with more than 3 million women vs. about 1.7 million men)
  • 80% of people with facial rosacea also suffer from dry eyes.

When not treated, advanced dry eyes can lead to corneal scarring, impaired vision, and a poor quality of life!

Signs and Symptoms You May Have Dry Eyes Include…

Eyes feeling gritty and uncomfortable

Light or glare sensitivity

Eyes that are too watery

Having to blink often to make things clear

Difficulty wearing contact lenses

Blurred vision or eye fatigue
