Dry Eye Syndrome is a condition that affects many people and can be uncomfortable, irritating and exhausting. Symptoms include stinging, gritty or irritable eyes, light sensitivity, blurry vision and excessively watery eyes. It’s our aim to not only help relieve the symptoms it causes, but also give you a personalised management programme to enable you to manage the issue long-term.
We offer a Dry Eye Clinic for patients which includes an initial consultation where an experienced Optometrist will carry out a thorough investigation. The effect of your health, medication and environmental factors will be taken into consideration and a specialised examination of your eyes and tears will be carried out to determine the most appropriate management regime for you. You will also be given advice on the products we feel would work best for you and how to minimise the symptoms.
This is a bespoke service and to ensure you are getting the absolute best treatment and advice for you, we will follow up your initial consultation with two appointments, the first one 6 weeks later to review your condition and see how your management regime is going, and the final one 12 weeks after your first visit as a concluding review to look at the results and ensure you are happy.
Our fee for the Dry Eye Clinic is £90 and includes the following;
- Initial Consultation (approx. 40 minutes)
- Review Consultation (approx. 20 minutes)
- Concluding Consultation (approx. 20 minutes)
- Up to two recommended products
