Dry eye is a chronic condition affecting about one-third of Australian adults. It is a common condition that occurs when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes & it feels uncomfortable.
Dry eye is commonly treated with warm compresses, over-the-counter eye drops that are preservative-free or foam wash. HYLO-FORTE Eye Drops or HYLO-FORTE lubricating eye drops are for severe or chronic dry eye and post-operative use. It is Preservative-free, Phosphate-free & it’s compatible with all contact lenses.

Staring at a computer or phone screen for too long can cause eyestrain & dry eyes so it’s best to follow the 20-20-20 rule to help you avoid eye strain & decrease your time spent looking at screens. Alternatively, you can look at upgrading your glasses with a pair of blue filter lenses.
Less blinking can lead to dry eye symptoms. If you have found yourself suffering from dry, book an appointment with our optometrist to discuss your options.
