Catherine has a special interest in this area being a dry eye sufferer herself. Symptoms including gritty, tired, sore and watery eyes are all indicative of dry eye disease (DED).
Dry eye assessments are not included in the routine eye examination so cannot be claimed on the NHS in this area. If you would like to discuss these symptoms a separate appointment is required.
The dry eye assessment will include a detailed history, bespoke questionnaire about your symptoms, eye assessment and advice on treatment. A return appointment to review your progress is also included in the fee.
Catherine is seeing a really positive outcome from these appointments and patients are experiencing less discomfort and a better understanding of their eye care needs.
