Get help for dry, sore eyes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Ash­ford-based op­tometrist Brown­bills has launched a cam­paign to raise aware­ness about dry eye dis­ease and help peo­ple pro­tect their eyes. The Nor­wood Street prac­tice has also launched a spe­cial­ist Tear Clinic, which uses TearLab tech­nol­ogy to test if a tear sam­ple is hy­drat­ing enough. Dr Huw Pin­ney, op­tometrist, said: “Mod­ern life­styles are partly to blame for the in­crease in peo­ple ex­pe­ri­enc­ing prob­lems such as dry eye. Symp­toms can range from mild to se­vere but it’s im­por­tant to know that peo­ple can and should do some­thing about it.”
