Minor Eye Conditions
A scheme funded by the NHS for people registered with a local GP, we can give advice and recommend treatment or referral for a range of eye conditions. If you are experiencing: red, sore, itchy or gritty eyes; flashing lights or new floaters; sudden deterioration or distortion in your vision then please contact us to arrange an appointment.
In North Yorkshire we can advise on and loan out low vision aids when your glasses just aren't strong enough anymore. People are usually referred to this clinic following either a sight test or hospital appointment .
Dry Eye Problems
Although dry eyes are relatively common, the discomfort caused can be quite debilitating. Often associated with age or blepharitis, lifestyle factors can also be a cause including CL wear, VDU use or diet. Unfortunately there isn't a "one size fits all" solution, and we can recommend a suitable treatment plan.
Noctura Mask for Diabetes
Diabetic retinopathy is one of the risks of diabetes, particularly when blood sugar levels are poorly controlled, or when someone has been diabetic for a long time. the best treatment for diabetes is good blood sugar control, however this mask, which is worn at night for 8 hours, has the potential to prevent or slow the progression of diabetic retinopathy.

Each of our practices has an OCT which is essential when assessing retinal health and investigating problems. Not all macula degeneration requires referral and treatment, but with regular scans, we can build a picture and detect changes at the earliest opportunity. Private OCT scans are not covered by the NHS.
Visual Stress Syndrome / Myers Irlen Assessment
Approximately 20% of the population experience discomfort when looking at a page of text. In many cases the symptoms can be relieved by changing the background to a certain colour - which is specific to each individual. The corrective tint can be supplied as an overlay, in spectacle lenses, as a clip on over existing glasses, or even as an adjustment to your computer screen.
