As well as having a number of symptoms, the condition can be caused by a number of factors:
- Incorrect contact lens use
- Prolonged periods of time in front of a computer or television screen
- Certain medications
- Environmental factors like air conditioning
The longer dry eye syndrome is left to develop, the more discomfort you may experience, and the harder it will be to treat. We therefore strongly recommend you visit us if you’ve noticed any of the symptoms above.
If you think you may be suffering from dry eye syndrome, we have an optician who takes a keen interest in the condition, and is able to prescribe a number of treatments during a privately charged dry eye assessment.
