Dry Eye Syndrome


LASIK Surgery

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition caused by many different factors. Symptoms include a gritty feeling, itching, burning, blurry vision and even tearing. It is affecting an increasing number of people due to increasing use of air-conditioners and heaters as well as the long hours spent looking at digital screens.


There are different types of Dry eye syndrome which your ophthalmologist can diagnose. Some forms have a deficiency of oils/lipid in the tear film due to malfunctioning glands in your eyelids. Other forms may involve a deficiency of the watery component of the tear film.


Medical therapy in the forms of eye-drops is the commonest form of treatment. We have a new dry eye treatment called E-Eye Intense Pulsed light therapy (IPL). It is safe, non-invasive and affordable. You do not need anaesthetic, hospitalization or injections.


80% of patients find relief with the treatment, and the effect may last between 6 months to 3 years and is easily repeated.
Treatment consists of 3 sessions of 10 minutes each in 2 to 4 week intervals. Do you have blepharitis? Try this if medical treatment has failed you.
