The Dry Eye Clinic at UNSW aims to be a state-wide referral centre for the diagnosis, imaging and evidence-based management of dry eye disease. This clinic also provides a platform for dry eye research and the opportunity for dry eye sufferers to take part in this. It also aims to be an advocacy centre for those suffering with dry eye disease. Our protocols are based on the international consensus workshop, TFOS DEWS II.
A visit to the dry eye clinic requires a referral, either from your own eyecare practitioner or from within our own clinic. The first visit will involve a dry eye evaluation with state-of-the-art equipment and will take approximately 1.5 hours. At the end of this visit, individualised treatment option(s) that are available and most appropriate will be discussed. This may involve in-office treatments which require a subsequent appointment, e.g. LipiFlow (1 hour).
As Dry Eye Management requires access to state-of-the-art dry eye instrumentations not covered by Medicare, fees will apply. Further information is available on request.
UNSW Optometry Clinic also offers free comprehensive eye examinations.
