Bayside Optical has launched a dedicated dry eye service.
As optometrists, we are perfectly placed with our intricate knowledge of the eyes and specialist equipment to evaluate and help you manage your dry eyes. The understanding of dry eye disease has grown in complexity, as have treatment options. It is a multifactorial disease that can have a huge impact on daily quality of life.
The first step in getting onto the right treatment is to evaluate the type of dry eye you have. It will guide treatment to successfully manage your dry eyes, so you can get on with whatever you want to do in life without the worries of uncomfortable eyes.
If you are experiencing frequent redness, fatigue or discomfort, call us and ask to book an appointment for a dedicated dry eye consultation.
Bayside Optical will remain open by appointment during the NSW COVID Lockdown for essential eye care. This includes eye examinations, repairs, and replacement of essential glasses.

The eyes took centre stage on the ABC's health report this week.
No one starts their day planning for an eye injury. Up to 90% of workplace eye injuries can be prevented by wearing appropriate eye protection. Dangerous activities include gardening, especially with powered tools, nail guns, metal/wood work, sudden release of bungee/shock cord, squash and racquet sports, cleaning with chemicals especially overhead.
Recovery from these injuries can be a long, slow process and can have lifelong effects on both vision, employment and wellbeing. Please ensure that you wear protective eyewear now matter how small a job at work or at home. With basic safety glasses costing less than a cup of coffee, there's really nor reason not to wear them. Your optometrist can advise you on the best option to protect your vision and can arrange comfortable prescription certified glasses for optimal vision.
