Visique test can spot Dry Eye Syn­drome suf­fer­ers

Waikato News - - Health & Wellbeing -

Are your eyes red, dry, ir­ri­tated or wa­ter­ing?

Dry Eye Syn­drome af­fects 20 per cent of the adult pop­u­la­tion and many peo­ple are un­aware of this un­com­fort­able con­di­tion.

Our eye­lids have mei­bo­mian glands which pro­duce an im­por­tant oil layer which pre­vents the evap­o­ra­tion of tears.

When there is a dys­func­tion of your mei­bo­mian glands this can lead to Dry Eye Syn­drome.

Symp­toms in­clude red­ness, sting­ing, burn­ing, gritty or wa­tery eyes— it can even make your vi­sion blurry.

There are a wide range of fac­tors that can ex­ac­er­bate Dry Eye Syn­drome, in­clud­ing air­con­di­tion­ing, hor­monal changes, the nat­u­ral age­ing process, menopause, con­tact lens use, ex­tended com­puter screen use, med­i­ca­tion side-ef­fects, and other con­di­tions like arthri­tis. Peo­ple who have un­der­gone laser eye treat­ment or cataract surgery could also suf­fer from this con­di­tion.

The sever­ity of Dry Eye Syn­drome will vary amongst those af­fected, and it is im­por­tant that a proper as­sess­ment and di­ag­no­sis is made.
