Overworking our eyes is not uncommon with the way modern lifestyles are today, and dry eyes tops the list when it comes to illnesses eye specialists are regularly confronted with. A growing trend has been found among young people suffering from dry eyes, be it students trying to improve their marks or office workers dealing with stress and long work hours. If not discovered and treated promptly, dry eyes could lead to swollen red eyes, and corneal damage, potentially affecting vision in more serious cases. Have your eyes checked early, and keep your checks regular. Don’t delay—if your eye specialist confirms that you have dry eyes, you should take it seriously, and be sure to follow their guidance on appropriate treatment, to improve the health of your eyes.
Although there are many different causes of dry eyes, they generally fall into two groups—lack of tears and evaporative dry eye. While the symptoms are similar for both groups, the treatments differ. Evaporative dry eye is largely a result of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). For individuals with MGD who use artificial tears to relieve symptoms, the MGD also requires treatment, to ensure healthy eyes long-term.
Jiahui's Ophthalmology department is currently offering an effective treatment for dry eyes caused by meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). Our highly experienced ophthalmoligists will develop a personalized treatment plan specifically for you, providing you with guidance on eye hygiene based on your lifestyle and daily habits. They will give you practical recommendations on healthy blinking habits with consideration to factors which predispose people to dry eye syndrome.
