So why is dry eye so hard to treat? One reason is that dry eye is one of the most complicated eye diseases and becoming more common. Dry eye occurs when your tears aren’t normal and dry out too quickly causing damage to the eye surface and discomfort. Commonly this is caused by poor blinking and inflamed eyelids affecting the tear oil layer. This causes tears to dry out faster and standard artificial tear eye drops don’t help.
Heron Eyecare was one of the first optometry practices in Australia to use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment for dry eye. IPL can help reduce the inflammation of the eye caused by dry eye to improve eye comfort and your quality of life. The treatment is safe and involves a light treatment to the skin below your eyes, which allows a long-term relief from dry eye symptoms.
