Edmonds and Slatter Opticians have more than 15 Ocular Hygienists amongst their staff.
They are specially trained on eye conditions including Blepharitis and Dry Eye which can affect vision and visual comfort.
Approximately 60% of people suffer from Dry Eye or Blepharitis and are unware that the conditions can be prevented with a few lifestyle changes and a good cleaning regime. Ocular Hygienists are perfectly placed to advise patients on good eye health and how to keep these common conditions under control, saving patients from experiencing unnecessary discomfort. Our Hygienists will spend as much time as you need explaining your eye care regime and demonstrating how to use dry eye products. They are also on hand to take calls if you have any queries once you get home, so you don’t need to wait until your next eye examination for help if you experience problems.
For further information or assistance on Blepharitis, Dry Eye or eye hygiene please contact our Blaby practice on (0116) 277 7733.
