Do you ever get tired or blurry eyes?

You’re not alone! Increasingly people are finding that life is too busy, and it’s hard to keep all the balls in the air and find time to stop and smell the roses.

Surviving one day can feel like a miracle.​

Did you know that a recent survey of Australians found that the most common symptoms of dry eyes were actually….tired or blurry eyes.

Around 77% of Australians have suffered symptoms of dry eyes. Since Covid, this number has risen to 85% of Australians.

You may have heard of Ken Jeong (American actor, comedian, and doctor). Ken said that his dry eye symptoms were due to “long days on set” or “extended use of contact lenses”.

July is Dry Eye Awareness Month. So we’re excited to share our new technology for diagnosing dry eyes.

Have a look at our new infrared camera for diagnosing dry eyes.

If you get tired, blurry eyes, we recommend that you make an appointment to see Rhiannon or Damon for a check-up.
