WHAT IS DRY EYE?

Dry eye syndrome is very common. Approximately 20% of the Australian adult population suffer from dry eyes and 40% of office workers experience dry eyes, due to their long exposure to air-conditioning and computer screens. Dry eye syndrome occurs when the eye produces fewer or poorer quality tears and unable to maintain normal eye lubrication.
