Dry eye clinics

Many optometrists are now offering dry eye clinics for people affected by the condition.

Janet Wilkinson pictured here of Andrew Merry Optometrists, was one of the first to join trials of a self-contained dry eye diagnostics kit. 

The diagnostic kits were provided free of charge by Altacor and No7 and the opticians were trained how to use them.

For example, Aylesbury optician Mr Vaja says participation in the training gave him the confidence to accurately identify symptoms. Mr Vaja has since gone on to establish a dry eye clinic himself.
