Dry Eyes a Constant Irritation?

One of the leading causes of dry eyes is Blepharitis which is the most common eye disease in the world and can infect anyone regardless of age. The symptoms usually tend to be worse in the morning and can include:

  • itchy, sore and red eyelids
  • eyelids that stick together and are difficult to open when you wake up
  • eyelashes that become crusty or greasy
  • a burning, gritty sensation in your eyes
  • an increased sensitivity to light
  • the edges of your eyelids becoming swollen
  • finding contact lenses uncomfortable to wear
  • abnormal eyelash growth or (in severe cases) loss of eyelashes

If you suffer from any of these on-going irritations, relief is now available. Watch the video to learn more about this highly effective and pain free treatment option from BlephEx which is now available in the clinic.  

Dr. David Gillam Optometry provides a full range of services for the complete health of your eyes with specializations including dry eye condition diagnosis and treatment. Connect with us today to schedule an appointment and rediscover the joy of a healthy set of eyes.
