Q: What’s worse than a New Year’s Eve hangover?

A: Waking up on January 1 and realising you didn’t claim your optical health fund benefits before 31 Dec.

Yes, it’s not a happy place to be so that’s why here at Drummoyne Optometry we get the word out early.

Now is a great time to claim those benefits before they expire on December 31. Even if you don’t need an eye test this year, use your benefits for a spare pair of glasses! We have a great range of no-gap packages – your fund will pay 100%. If you’re a contact lens wearer, stock up before the holiday season begins.  What about prescription sunglasses? Or choose something fabulous from our range of amazing eyewear including Furla, Prodesign, Nike, Oroton and more. No appointment necessary – our friendly, qualified team will advise you on what’s best for you.

Relief for Dry Eye

RELIEF FOR DRY EYE WITH HYLO FORTE

‘Dry Eye’ or “Dry Eye Syndrome” are the terms used to describe insufficient tear film production to keep your eyes lubricated and comfortable.  An eye lubricant such as Hylo Forte can help reduce symptoms and discomfort.

Symptoms of dry eye include:

  • Burning, stinging eyes
  • Runny eyes (which goes against the notion of ‘dry eye’ but is often a symptom)
  • Tired eyes
  • Itchiness and redness
  • Eyes that feel gritty
  • Occasional blurred vision

Anyone of any age can suffer from dry eye, though as we get older we tend to produce less tear film. Some medications can trigger it, as can menopause and medical conditions such as arthritis. Another key factor these days is the amount of time we all spend on computer screens and other digital devices. That, combined with air conditioning or winter heating, creates the perfect conditions for dry eye.

Hylo Forte relieves these symptoms and provides long-lasting and soothing relief. I use it myself when I suffer from dry eye. It is very easy to use, is preservative-free and is also very economical as it lasts for 6 months after opening. Hylo Forte is available at Drummoyne Optometry – speak to us about how it can assist in the management of your dry eye symptoms. We can also perform a comprehensive dry eye examination and recommend further treatments. Book an appointment online at www.drummoyneoptometry.com.au or call us on 9181 3157.

Are you a victim of Digital Eye Strain?

Eyes feeling tired?

A headache is starting?

Neck and shoulders are aching?

These are common symptoms associated with Digital Eye Strain (DES). DES is related to the overuse of digital devices

Australians spend at least 10 hours a day in front of their digital devices. Have you ever thought about what the screens of our digital devices are doing to our eyes?

Digital devices are back lit and emit blue-violet light that our eyes are not made to be over exposed to. Over exposure to this blue light can cause discomfort and long term effects to our eyes. Essilor’s solution to DES is Eyezen Lenses.

Eyezen is a new range of lenses designed for a connected life. The lenses are the most technologically advanced lenses designed for how you view your digital screens.

Eyezen lenses help relax the eyes, giving you better focus thanks to its exclusive technology. Eyezen also features a coating that filters out harmful blue light and enhances the contrast without changing the colour of the screen, giving you clearer vision.

Eyezen lenses are available to everyone, whether you have prescription glasses or not.

Eyezen is the clear choice for all digital device users.  Visit www.eyezen.com.au for more information.
