Not only is it uncomfortable and unattractive but more of concern is that in the long term it can cause damage and scarring to the cornea and conjunctiva. A natural, healthy tear film is essential to fight infection and to provide nourishment vital for clear vision. That is why you must not ignore the condition. You should find out the underlying cause of your dry eyes and get it treated properly.

Dry Eye Treatment in Singapore – The EyeClinic by Dr Cheryl Lee

If you have had dry eyes but yet have not become better despite using eye drops, it’s extremely likely that you suffer from blepharitis and/or meibomitis. This is a new scientific discovery. Years before, doctors said that there was no cure for dry eyes. But with this new discovery, innovative treatments have recently become available at The Eyeclinic by Dr Cheryl Lee. 

 

The EyeClinic by Dr Cheryl Lee has treatments that are not available in the other clinics. The dry eye department of this clinic is well-equipped in Asia. We have many successfully treated patients who had given up hope of relief from dry eyes. Eye drops,lid wipes and hot compresses alone rarely offer good sustainable outcome. With new understanding of causes of dry eyes, new technologies are now available at The EyeClinic. After we have assessed your eyes, we can determine the cause and advise on the best treatment option.

Contrary to old belief,

You don’t have to live with your dry eyes.

Dry eyes is the most common complication after LASIK procedure.
