Does screen time make your eyes dry?

We are looking for participants to trial blinking exercises for dry eye.

An optometry student and a medical student are inviting the participation of individuals who experience symptoms of dry eye when using computers or digital displays. Symptoms of dry eye are sometimes reported as stinging and watering eyes when you blink or close them after looking at the screen.

If you are over 16 years andhave 30-60 minutes to spare to participate in our two-visit study at the University Eye Clinic at Grafton, please contact us for more information.
