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.
Please do not delay seeking medical attention for any change or loss of vision.
