Dry eye is a multi-factorial condition that affects the anterior surface of the eye.
Currently, millions of people worldwide suffer from this condition and experience symptoms such as grittiness, burning sensation, redness and intermittent blurred vision.
Pharmacists supply a variety of ocular lubricants which have been the conventional treatment for mild level dry eye for many years.
We recommend patients consult an eye care professional to specifically tailor a management plan according to the severity of their dry eye.
Large clinical trials have continued to support the use of the specialised heat masks and lid hygiene to promote expression of natural tears as an adjunct therapy to ocular lubricants.
The latest research supports the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy which acts on the structures within the eyelid to assist in severe levels of dry eye.
Primary Eye Care optometrists are experts in providing a comprehensive eye examination with a subspecialty interest in dry eye management.
Orthokeratology or Ortho-K as it is commonly called, is a hard contact lens that you wear at night and remove in the morning.
While you sleep, the specially designed lens gently reshapes the front surface (cornea) of your eye to correct your vision throughout the day.
Scientific research since the 1960s continues to reaffirm Ortho-K lenses having a positive effect on controlling myopia progression with the added benefit of not having to wear correction during the day.
To date, over one million patients have used the procedure and unlike surgery, the procedure can be safely discontinued or reversed at any time.
The infection risk of Ortho-k is very similar to that of your everyday soft contact lenses.
Ortho-K is available at both Burwood and Mona Vale.
