Q&A with Dr. H

Dr. Harmer Answers Your Eyecare Questions

I regularly use over the counter eye drops when my eyes feel irritated. Is this good for my eyes?

No, it's not helping your eyes or vision. If you feel that you need eye drops, there must be something medically wrong with your eyes. You should schedule a consultation with me so we can have your eyes checked to understand the cause of the discomfort in your eyes and recommend a suitable course of treatment for your condition which may or may not include eye drops.

Developed by TearScience, the sterile lid warmer and eyecup apply a combination of heat and pressure to the eyes for less than 15 minutes at a time, under constant monitoring by an eye doctor.
