Dry eye specialists
Our dry eye specialist will start by taking a history to extract vital information. They will then examine your eyes, eye lids, eye lashes and tear film to help determine the cause of your symptoms. From this we can then advise you on treatment options available to help resolve your symptoms. We may wish to see you for a follow up assessment to review your results following your treatment plan.
Our latest addition to our "Dry Eye" service, called Tearstim, is a revolutionary management option for the most common type of dry eye disease. It is a two step process consisting of an initial heat treatment using Blephasteam, followed by a pulsed light treatment. To find out more, click the button below:
