Your fully equipped dry eye clinic in Melbourne
Dry eyes can range from a mild, short-lived irritation to severe pain and discomfort that significantly affects your quality of life. As a dry eye specialist in Melbourne, Dr Anton van Heerden and his team of highly trained clinicians understand this, which is why we established our state-of-the-art dry eye clinic for Melbourne patients.
Do you have dry eyes?
Dry eyes may not always present in an obvious way. In addition to the noticeable sensation of the eyes feeling dry, dry eyes may also cause symptoms such as grittiness, redness, feeling tired after reading or using the computer, the sensation of a foreign particle in the eye, blurry or fluctuating vision, and even a watery eye.
Our dry eye centre in Melbourne is equipped with the latest technology to not only diagnose your dry eye but also to formulate a targeted treatment to provide you with effective relief. If you’re looking for an experienced dry eye specialist in Melbourne, call us now for an examination with Dr van Heerden.
Dry Eye Treatment
Our Melbourne eye doctors are experienced in diagnosing and treating dry eyes, utilising the latest in dry eye therapies. Your comprehensive examination will consider factors that are contributing to your dry eye, such as blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction, or poor eyelid function. Our dry eye experts will use tests such as diagnostic dyes, eyelid gland imaging, and tear osmolarity measurements.
By using lubricant eye drops as a conventional dry eye treatment, many Melbourne patients are able to find relief, however, for some this may not be enough.
Our dry eye clinic in Melbourne is equipped with advanced therapies to manage severe and stubborn dry eye cases. Depending on your degree and type of dry eye, Dr van Heerden and his associate eye specialists may use revolutionary treatments such as:
- IPL (intense pulsed light)
- LLLT (low-level light therapy)
- Resono Eye Resonance
The management plan for your dry eye will be based on the results of your eye examination so that our specialist can recommend your personalised, targeted treatments. In addition to in-office therapies, our experienced doctors can discuss how to make environmental and lifestyle modifications that help to further alleviate your dry eye.
