Changes to Dry Eye Lubricant for patients

Following advice from our local CCG we need to let our Friar Gate Surgery patients know that simple dry eye can be managed through patient self-care. We have been advised to inform patients with a variety of simple dry eye issues including tired eyes, hay fever symptoms, contact lens wearers, visual display screen users, and age-related dry eyes to use a dry eye lubricant options for self-care which can be purchased over the counter from any reputable pharmacy.

This information is for all new patients and any current patients with these symptoms will find it discussed at their next review.
