What is Dry Eye?

Are your contact lenses feeling uncomfortable? Do your eyes feel tired and heavy in the evening? The most likely cause is dry eye. Other dry eye symptoms include red, sore, irritated eyes that become watery, and a feeling of grittiness in the eyes. Dry eye causes blurry, fluctuating vision. Not blinking regularly when reading computer screens worsens dry eye. Dry eye and blepharitis often co-exist and the symptoms can be similar.


As experienced clinicians we can diagnose dry eye and blepharitis and the underlying problem using a minimum of specific tests. We offer a bespoke personalized approach which corrects the problem, but also most importantly, fits in with your lifestyle. Dry eye is a chronic condition. Being able to maintain the improvement long term requires integration of key eye health patterns into your regular routine.

More information

Tear evaporation due to an insufficient oily tear layer is the one of the commonest causes of dry eye. Carrying out manual daily hot eyelid massage is the standard method to unblock the Meibomian oil glands which produce oily tears, but in some cases this does not work, or it works partially but not completely.

A new treatment called MiBo ThermoFlo, available at London Dry Eye Clinic, can help kick-start the process of unblocking the Meibomian oil glands. Find out more by contacting us.
