Local residents now have access to innovative dry eye treatment. OPSM Wendouree optometrist, Rajinder Uppal, is encouraging everyone to increase their knowledge and awareness about dry eye and the new treatment available at OPSM Wendouree.
Dry eye is a common condition caused by the degeneration of the Meibomian Glands which are located inside your eyelids. If they deteriorate, they may fail to create a tear film that is strong enough to protect your eyes from drying resulting in the majority of dry eye cases.

“We are very excited to provide this revolutionary new treatment. We are seeing an increase in local residents reporting dry eye symptoms to OPSM. Symptoms range from a minor irritation to having a negative impact on their quality of life. In the past eye drops were often used to relieve the symptoms, but the new Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment may help treat the cause of the condition,” said Rajinder.
