Consultant Oculoplastic Surgeon Dr Maryam Zamani was featured in the Daily Mail giving advice on products to prevent the eyes from drying out.
In cold weather, when central heating becomes an almost-permanent indoor feature, our eyes can become susceptible to dryness and irritation.
Dr Zamani reviewed eye drops and tea tree oil lid wipes, products which are designed to lubricate the eyes and reduce inflammation. Whilst the eye drops fared well with a score of 9/10, the lid wipes did not rank so well, with a score of just 2/10. Rather than using lid wipes, which are also bad for the environment, Dr Zamani recommends using a warm compress for 15 minutes a day, 'This softens the natural oils in the eyelid so they flow into the eye and lubricate it, and helps break down and clear dead skin cells that may be irritating the eyelids.’
Dr Zamani, who has a special interest in blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and a vast range of facial rejuvenation treatments, has a global reputation for her expertise and her uncompromised results.
