IMPORTANT INFORMATION - WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS
At Dry Eye we are acutely aware of the need for people to obtain our services. Dry eye and the other symptoms we treat will not just go away because the Covit 19 virus is here. People still need the treatments we provide. So we have adopted some new practices we feel confident will minimise any risk associated with obtaining our services.
Firstly we have thoroughly cleaned all areas of our office and treatment room. All utensils used during treatments are always thoroughly cleaned between seeing patients to ensure the safest hygiene practices.
We will be staggering our client visits to ensure you will be able to walk straight in to our treatment room and receive their consultation or treatment.
At the completion you can pay immediately and leave. We will contact you to arrange your following appointments (if required) by telephone or email. All surfaces are then thoroughly cleaned before the next client arrives.
Our consultant will be wearing a face mask during her consults and treatments as a safeguard to both persons.
If you are running out of your home care products for dry eye we are happy to take a phone order and post them out.
This practice will ensure you can receive your treatment in the safest possible way.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Dry eye is the generic term for the discomfort felt when the eye either produces too little tears or the tears evaporate from the eye surface too rapidly. People who suffer from dry eyes can experience red eyes, burning or grittiness and the pain then induces the wateriness that can cause confusion leading to a common question "How can my eyes be dry when they are always watering?"
Blepharitis is an inflammatory disease of the eyelids affecting people of all ages, but more common in older age groups. It usually affects the eyelid margins making the eyes feel sore and gritty, and can recur regularly or become chronic.
MGD is chronic and progressive but can be treated and the progression slowed. Most people who have been diagnosed with dry eye have tried the first line of treatment (lubricating eye drops), but when the relief is short-lived and the dryness becomes more pervasive, that's where we can help.
