Dry Eye from SASK Optics

Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms?

  • Itchy and stinging eyes
  • Gritty sandy sensation
  • Foreign body feeling
  • Red watery eyes
  • Inflamed eye lid margins
  • Unable to wear contact lenses

If you do, you may be one of the millions of people who suffer with DRY EYES in the UK every day.

The severity of the condition can vary from mildly irritating to severely debilitating, and in some cases can be caused by a serious underlying condition! At SASK, we run special dry eye clinics to identify the exact cause of the condition and recommend appropriate treatment.

We start by asking you about your history and any symptoms, after which you will be required to fill in a simple questionnaire. This will give us an indication of the severity of your condition and possible causes.

We then carry out a thorough examination, including measuring the amount of tears you have (if indeed you have any) and the quality of the tears that you have. We assess all the structures of your eyes which may be causing the dry eyes with the use of special dyes. None of the procedures are painful and are performed relatively quickly.

We treat Dry Eyes in Leicester

Treatment is usually in the form of dietary advice, eye drops, lid wipes and heat compresses. We will go through with you how to use any of these treatment methods, if required. We stock and supply several eye drops, lid hygiene treatments, eye cosmetics (eye makeup can be a cause of eye irritation) but we always recommend preservative free preparations. Spectrum Thea (a pioneering company dealing in dry eye products) has a fantastic range of eye drops and lid wipes products – see www.spectrum-thea.co.uk. We are also the proud stockiest of EyeSiccal, a completely natural ingredient eye drop. This product has been very good at relieving itchy eyes and is the treatment of choice especially for those who do not want any chemicals going in their eyes. For more information about EyeSiccal, visit www.eyesiccal.com.

There are many causes for dry eye which include hormonal, environmental, contact lenses, side effects to medication and are secondary to an underlying disease. It is very important to find out which of these factors is causing the dry eye to find the best course of treatment.

We have undergone specialist training to provide a dry eye clinic at SASK. This clinic is private and is not covered by the NHS. Please call or email the practice for more information.
