Direct Referral for Cataracts
The most common eye problem we encounter, after needing spectacles or contact lenses that is, is cataract. Resolving the problem with minor surgery is now routine in the NHS, but getting the person with the cataract seen in a reasonable time is sometimes problematic.
In Tees we have a Direct Cataract Referral Community pathway which means that after the optometrist diagnoses cataract, the sufferer is then offered an appointment at a hospital of their choice for the minor surgery on the NHS. This means that waiting times are as short as possible.

Dry Eye / Blepharitis Advice and Treatment
Blepharitis is a condition where the edges of your lids, where the lashes are, become inflamed and irritable. Both this and dry eye are a very common cause of sore, uncomfortable eyes. It's the kind of sensation you tend to 'put up with' on the computer, whilst driving or just generally, but it makes things more irritating than they should be.
If that sounds like you, there may well be simple solutions that can remedy your problems. You don't have to put up with it any longer.
Changing your habits very slightly can often improve your comfort a great deal. We also stock the Thea range of dry eye/blepharitis treatments which are the most effective available.
