Today’s more challenging environments and visual tasks may cause your eyes to water too little or too much.
Particular problem areas include travelling by car or by plane, reading, computer use, and air currents. It is further exacerbated by poor diet, certain medications and fatigue.
We have examinations which evaluate your tear layer and we can offer realistic advice on how best to manage tear instability. These tests measure the evaporation rate and volume of your tears and the effect that they might be having on the surface of the eye.
There is a wide range of tear substitutes and lid care products here and we can offer advice on those which are proving more effective for your situation.
Please ask for for a tear assessment appointment if this is a problem for you.
