Bater and Stout Focuses on Dry Eye Syndrome
If you are suffering from Dry Eye Syndrome then it is advisable to contact an optician.
Traditionally, people over the age of 40 are more susceptible to dry eye syndrome, which is caused by the eye’s inability to maintain a healthy layer of tears to coat it.
Such factors as air-conditioned office buildings and high computer use are among the aggravating factors which are causing dry eye problems.
“In the modern world of air conditioning and computer screens you find more and more people are suffering,” said Tony Stout, owner of Bater & Stout.
“We’ve certainly seen a growth in the number of patients, of all ages, complaining of irritation and dryness.
“Strangely, one of the symptoms of dry eye syndrome is watery eyes, while others include uncomfortable, dry or gritty feelings in the eye, burning or itching, redness, hazy vision and sensitivity to light.”
One tip is to blink more frequently (to reduce tear evaporation) when using computer screens, and also avoid getting dehydrated.
But Bater & Stout also stock specialist products such as the revolutionary, long-lasting Systane eye drops, which can significantly ease the irritation of dry eye.
