If you are experiencing:

If you are suffering from any of the above you may have a common tear problem known as dry eye. The good news is that once it has been investigated most people find that it is relatively easy to treat.
Dry eye occurs when your tear flow reduces or your tears evaporate too quickly, causing the sensitive front surface of the eye to dry out. The eyes then become uncomfortable, red & inflamed and in some cases very sore.
There are many different causes of dry eye which must be properly investigated if it to be treated effectively.
At the dry eye clinic we will carefully consider your symptoms, undertake a detailed specialist examination of your tears, recommend the latest treatments to alleviate your symptoms and ensure that you leave knowing exactly how to treat your particular condition with a bespoke care plan. We will then invite you to return for follow up appointments to fine tune your treatment over a period of up to three months.
The clinic also offers management of common eyelid problems like Blepharitis & eyelid cysts.(chalazion or meibomian cysts)
