Are you tired of having
dry or watery eyes?
Are you constantly rubbing your
eyes because it feels as though
you have sand under your eye lids or

to mop up tears that keep flowing

If you answered yes to either
of the above questions then
you may be experiencing
dry eye syndrome.
Dry eye syndrome is a
constant lack of sufficient
lubrication and moisture on the
outer surface of the eye.
Its symptoms range from subtle but

"Prescription eye drops or nutrition
supplements are another option
which actually assist your body in
producing better quality tears by
reducing inflammation associated
with dry eye syndrome" she says.
So don't put up with burning scratchy
eyes...especially since there's a lot of
exciting rugby to be watching soon!

at Visique Papakura and get your dry
eyes under control.
