Dry Eyes Kareela

Prolonged screen time, environmental changes, and health conditions can contribute to the discomfort of dry eyes. At IC Optometrist, we specialise in diagnosing and treating dry eyes near Kareela, using innovative solutions for those living in and around Gymea. Our experienced optometrists, state-of-the-art technology, alongside our personalised dry eye treatments sets us apart. Our goal is to provide relief and comfort, ensuring your day is not disrupted by the irritation of dry eyes.

Our Approach to Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eyes are not just an irritating nuisance. You might be experiencing symptoms such as gritty, sore, red or watery eyes, especially in windy, dry and cold conditions. Left untreated, it can escalate to severe discomfort and potentially, long-term eye damage. As your vision guardian, IC Optometrist takes a personalised approach to combating dry eyes. First, we begin with a comprehensive eye examination to diagnose the severity of your dry eyes. We then implement tailored treatment plans that may involve:


  • Blephex treatment for Blepharitis

  • Hot compresses

  • Lid debridement and Meibomian gland expression for Meibomian Gland Disease

  • Moisture chamber spectacles

  • Prescription eye drops such as steroids and cyclosporins

  • Referrals to specialists for more complex treatments


Regardless if you are from Kareela or Gymea, our goal is to provide sustainable relief from dry eye symptoms. We also understand that dry eyes can impact daily activities, which is why we employ the latest technology in eye care and diagnosis during treatment.


Equipping you with the knowledge to manage dry eyes is also vital. We will guide you through fundamental self-help strategies like blinking exercises, screen time reduction, and maintaining a diet supportive of eye health.
