Dry eye syndrome is an extremely common ocular condition, affecting a significant proportion of the population. Patient’s with dry eye syndrome are commonly told that there is nothing that can be done or that it is ‘normal for their eyes’, and are often only given artificial tear eye drops as a treatment option. 

Symptoms of dry eye syndrome can include:

  • Tired eyes, particularly by the end of the dry

  • Blurred vision which improves on blinking or rubbing the eyes

  • Red Eyes

  • Gritty, burning or sore feeling eyes

  • Sticky eyes and stuck eyelids on waking up

  • Watery eyes, particularly in cold and windy conditions

  • Light sensitivity
