Opticians Anne Gill Eyecare has given About MyArea the five most common signs that indicate when someone is suffering from a condition known as ‘Dry Eye’.
"Dry Eye is the most common eye problem out there, but it usually goes undiagnosed when people put it down to tiredness or stress," explains Anne Gill, who runs her independent opticians in London Road, North End. "There are few things more distressing than the constant discomfort of itchy, sore or painful eyes and these are the common symptoms of the condition."
- Wet and watering eyes
- Tired and sore eyes
- Burning, stinging or scratching sensations in the eye
- Blurred vision
- Itchy and irritated eyes
People suffering from dry, irritable or watery eyes are now being given the opportunity to identify the cause through the examination of their tears. Anne Gill Eyecare is the only opticians in Hampshire to have invested in ‘Tear Lab’, which measures the ‘osmolarity’ (or content) of human tears to aid the diagnosis of Dry Eye Disease.
