What help is available?

If you have persistent watering eyes or any lumps or swelling around your eyes visit your Specsavers optometrist. They will identify your symptoms.

If you have dry eye syndrome, you may be given lubricating eye drops, advised to avoid activities that aggravate your symptoms or advised on some simple eye hygiene tips.

Your GP may also prescribe additional medication if the cause is an allergy or infection. In some cases, you may then be referred to an ophthalmologist for further examination of your tear ducts.

Did you know?

Specsavers stores provide a range of additional eye care services to help maintain the health of your eyes. In some areas of the country, this may be provided free of charge on behalf of the NHS. Where NHS services are not available, there is a private service. Rather than booking an appointment online, contact your local store for more information and to arrange an eye health clinic appointment.
