Dry Eye Syndrome doesn’t just cause dry eyes – they can be watery too!

Did you know that Dry Eye Syndrome is the most common cause of eye pain and discomfort in Ireland? It’s so common that many sufferers don’t even know they have it. Dry Eye Syndrome is the name given to a condition that encompasses a range of symptoms, including:

  • A dry and/or gritty sensation in your eyes
  • A burning or stinging sensation in your eyes
  • Itching
  • Excessive watering
  • Discharge
  • Excess irritation from wind or smoke
  • Redness
  • Tiredness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Contact lens discomfort

Dry Eye Syndrome can be easily cured, with a range of easy and painless solutions like eye drops, or simply some minor environmental or lifestyle changes! Our ocular hygienists are second to none, having been the first in Ireland to be awarded ocular hygienist status, so you can rest assured that your eyes will be looked after by some of the best in the business.

It is normally best to attend our Dry & Watery Eye Clinic after an eye test, so that we can carry out all our diagnostic tests to fully evaluate your eyes and tears too. This ensures that we can accurately diagnose the problem and give you drops specific to your condition.
