5 EASY WAYS TO ELIMINATE DRY EYES, AS TOLD BY AN EYE SPECIALIST (EYEDROPS ISN’T ON THE LIST)
February 1st, 2018

Almost everyone will experience dry eyes at some point in their lives. Be it after LASiK surgery, after staring at your computer for too long, or after prolonged exposure to winds in cold weathered countries.

We’ve all had that stinging, biting, gritty sensation in our eyes that rather ironically, brings about sudden, excessive and annoying tearing. Our eyes start to well up, and soon enough, our vision blurs.

Eyedrops! We know that’ll do the trick! Unfortunately, for many of us, eyedrops are just a temporary solution and more often than not, putting in the drops consistently can be a mean feat.

Despite it's prevalence, I've come to realise that many of my patients still have a poor understanding of cataracts.
