Colder months can amplify symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome.

Dry eye occurs when there is insufficient production or imbalance of any of the components in the tear film, leading to ocular discomfort. 

Apart from the feeling of dryness, the symptoms of dry eyes can include:

 – Gritty, stinging or watery eyes

– Intermittent blurred vision that is relieved through blinking

– Foreign body sensation

– Light sensitivity

Many people don’t associate watery eyes with Dry Eye. It makes sense, how can you have dry eyes when they feel the opposite?

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, book an eye exam with one of our optometrists and let us help you find the right treatment and solution to alleviate your discomfort. All of our treatments are gentle, non-invasive and can provide you with instant long-lasting relief.
