DRY EYES ARE A MODERN PROBLEM

What does a Dry Eye Consultation involve?

This starts with a one to one discussion with our Optician and a careful history including specific questions about your health and environment as well as a detailed eye examination will establish the presence of dry eye and eliminate other possible causes of the above symptoms.

Our Dry Eye service costs £65 and this covers up to 3 appointments. At the first appointment you will have a one to one discussion and dry eye assessment with our Optician. Advice will be given depending on their findings and a plan of action will be suggested together with recommendations about eye care products that may benefit your specific problems. An Optometric Assistant will advise on how to get the best out of any products required- this consultation takes around 30 minutes. Any products purchased will be discounted by 10%.

We would then recommend follow up visits after a period to monitor progress and advise any changes which might be beneficial.

If a new patient attends for Dry Eye evaluation we would usually prefer to carry out a full Sight Test and internal Eye Examination at the same time. Since so many will be over 60 then it may be that this exam can be carried out without charge under the NHS.
