Dry Eyes Loftus

At IC Optometrist, we help patients reclaim comfortable, clear vision with our effective dry eye treatment. Dry eyes can be a disabling condition, causing discomfort, itchiness, and blurry vision. But with our expertise and personalised dry eye treatment near Loftus, you will soon find noticeable relief. 

Having served the Loftus community, along with Sutherland and Miranda, since 1985, IC Optometrist has built a reputation for providing exceptional eye care services. IC Optometrist focuses on early detection of potential issues through comprehensive eye tests, utilising cutting-edge equipment to ensure even the minor problems are diagnosed promptly.

Our AHPRA qualified optometrists don't just prescribe medication for dry eyes. They also help you understand its causes, and guide you through lifestyle modifications and effective home remedies to manage dry eyes effectively. 

Why Expert Eye Testing Matters

Regular eye testing is crucial not only to maintain optimal vision but also to detect any early signs of eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy. Early detection leads to improved prognosis and better management of these conditions. Dry eyes often coexist with other eye disorders; that’s why thorough eye tests are key to our approach.


Our experts utilise state-of-the-art technology in conducting these tests, such as the OCT machine, DNEYE scanner, and Rodenstock Impressionist tool. These advanced tools allow us to get accurate results, giving a precise diagnosis and personalised treatment plan.


And while we innovatively blend traditional methods with the latest optometry advancements, our love for community care remains. We are based in Sutherland Shire and are privileged to serve the suburbs of Loftus, Dolans Bay and more.

How to Manage Dry Eyes at Home

While professional treatment of dry eyes is crucial, there are several measures you can take at home to alleviate the discomfort associated with the condition. Staring at screens for extended periods can exacerbate dry eyes; try taking regular breaks to look away from the screen. Ensure your environment is well-ventilated but not overly air-conditioned, as extreme conditions could worsen your symptoms.


Moreover, maintaining a balanced diet with rich Omega-3 fatty acids can also help reduce dry eye symptoms. With a comprehensive approach including a suitable home environment, nutritious diet and reliable professional care, you can successfully manage your dry eye condition.
