Dry Eye Syndrome

Jan 31, 2024

What is Dry Eye Syndrome?

Your eye naturally produces tears which create a protective film in front of your eye that prevents damage as well as keeping it lubricated and hydrated.

Dry eye is a common condition where the eyes don't produce enough tears to keep the surface of the eye lubricated. This can lead to discomfort, irritation, and even potential damage.

How do you manage Dry Eye Syndrome?

At Pristine, we specialise in providing comprehensive care for dry eye, addressing both the symptoms and underlying causes to improve your eye comfort. 

  1. Assessment:

Our highly experienced team conducts a thorough assessment to understand the specific factors contributing to your dry eye. This involves assessing tear production, and tear quality, and examining the overall health of your eyes.

  1. Personalised Treatment Plans:

Based on the assessment, we create personalised treatment plans tailored to your unique needs. This may include:

  • Artificial Tears:

    • Lubricating eye drops to reduce dryness and irritation.

  • Prescription Medications:

    • Medications to reduce inflammation or stimulate tear production.

  • Lifestyle and Environmental Changes:

    • Recommendations for adjustments in your daily routine or environment to minimise dry eye symptoms.

  1. Advanced Therapies:

For more severe cases of dry eye, we offer advanced therapies, such as:

  • LipiFlow®:

    • A revolutionary treatment that helps unclog blocked oil glands in the eyelids, improving tear quality.

  • Punctal Plugs:

    • Tiny plugs are inserted into the tear ducts to slow down the drainage of tears, keeping the eyes moist for a longer time.

  1. Long term Support:

Our commitment doesn't end with the initial treatment. We offer ongoing support and follow-up to monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments to your management plan, and ensure your long-term eye health.

Dry eye is a common and treatable condition, and Pristine is here to help you find relief. Don't let dry eye impact your quality of life, get in touch and let us guide you toward healthier, more comfortable eyes. We are here to deliver quality, precision and excellence every time.
