Dry Eyes Heathcote

At IC Optometrist, we're committed to providing the best eye care for our clients. One of the services we offer is the treatment of dry eyes near Heathcote and surrounds. This issue can be extremely uncomfortable and may disrupt your daily activities. In our clinic based in Gymea, we provide comprehensive treatment solutions to help you get relief from dry eyes.

Understanding Dry Eyes

Dry eyes can result from various factors, including prolonged use of screens, exposure to certain environmental triggers, and an imbalance in the tear production process. Symptoms may include redness, itching, light sensitivity, and even blurred vision, especially in windy, dry or cold conditions. If left untreated, dry eyes can lead to more serious complications. Therefore, it’s crucial for individuals suffering from this condition to seek professional help from an optometrist.


Navigating life with dry eyes can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. We understand this at IC Optometrist, and that’s why we offer exceptional service to our clients. With us, you don’t just get a generic treatment solution; you get a customised plan designed to address your specific needs.


Our team of AHPRA qualified optometrists use advanced technology to accurately diagnose the cause and severity of your dry eyes. This allows us to offer the best possible treatment plan, tailored to your individual needs.
