Dry eye syndrome is a common eye condition that can cause a lot of distress if not treated. It is caused and exacerbated by many factors including your general health, medication, eye health (lid hygiene), makeup, and the environment.
Blepharitis is inflammation of the lid margins. It is often associated with dry eyes, the management of Blepharitis is dependent on the type of Blepharitis you are affected by.
Unfortunately, dry eye syndrome is often undiagnosed or is insufficiently treated and the patient continues to experience symptoms. A dry eye assessment will allow the Optometrist to decide the best treatment to help alleviate your problems.
