Dry Eye Conditions

If your eyes ever feel sore, dry, itchy or watery then you could suffer from a number of dry eye conditions. Our team of optometrists and clinicians are dry eye specialists who use the latest equipment to treat this common condition quickly and painlessly onsite. 

Dry eye syndrome causes conditions such as blepharitis. This is an inflammation of the eyelids, and meibomian gland dysfunction, which is when the ducts in your eyelids get blocked, can prevent your tears from doing their job. 

The good news is, it's very common and very easy and painless to solve. Through our three-step process, our team can diagnose your condition, develop a bespoke solution and provide treatment all from the comfort of our practice in Stratford-upon-Avon.  

" I am writing in praise of the Tearstim Treatment course that I have just completed. I have suffered with very sore eyes for nearly ten years and nothing has been much help. I couldn’t drive or watch TV or a film at the cinema when it was really bad so it was having a very limiting effect on my life. I wasn’t expecting a cure with the Tearstim as I have other eye conditions and I’d had it so long but I have been very pleased with the results. Its turned something that was quite deliberating into a minor nuisance that I can get on with my life with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone."

Healthy eyes in three easy steps

Could you benefit? 
Sometimes people have been living in discomfort for years, not knowing there is a simple solution on their doorstep. If you're experiencing any of the following, then we can help: gritty feeling in the eyes, red eyes or eyelids, sticky eyelids in the morning, flakes around eyelash roots, sore eyelids, watery eyes, itchy eyes or a burning sensation. 
Step 1 - Diagnosis
We'll do a thorough examination, so we know the precise cause of your dry eye irritation. Becky, our dry-eye clinician, will then discuss the various treatment options with you in-depth. This is her area of expertise and she is great at explaining everything clearly, answering your questions and will make you feel completely at ease.

Step 2 - Treatment
You may be offered a microexfoliation of the eyelids or a procedure to stimulate the meibomian glands. Both are painless and usually take around 15 minutes. Treatment will be completely tailored to your individual needs and preference. We'll offer you treatment as soon as possible - ideally on the day of your diagnosis - so you can enjoy the world through comfortable eyes once more.

Step 3 - Aftercare 

You'll start to feel the benefits within a couple of hours. Depending on the treatment you receive and the nature of your condition, you may need to return for a couple of repeat applications. We'll keep in touch to see how you're getting on and can always book you in for additional sessions if you need them.

Problems With Dry Eyes?

We can treat dry eyes painlessly

The Idra device can provide an individual analysis of the patient’s tear film, delivering a quick but detailed structure of the tear composition. This can help you to identify the type of dry eye disease that is present, and determining which treatment is required.
"...transforming my watery, sore eyes!"

"Thank you Becky at CG Opical for transforming my watery, sore eyes! The treatment was so easy and I can't thank you enough! Amazing!"

BlephEx™ is a microexfoliation treatment that gently removes bacteria from your eyelash roots. You’ll feel a little tingling sensation as it's applied, but within 15 minutes your eyes will be feeling bright and healthy again.
Activa is a clinically proven, natural method to stimulate Meibomian glands by applying heat at a very specific temperature and to massage the melted oil out of the glands. This procedure unclogs your glands and stimulate the natural production of oils to keep your eyes lubricated. 
"BLOWN AWAY - next level service!"
"Having been a client at CG optical I felt the need to review, while I always have fabulous eye care and glasses, I recently had an appointment with Becky for dry eye treatment (for watery eyes) and Blephex tearstim (for hay fever suffers). The blephex made my eyes feel brand new and Becky was simply amazing"

Tearstim is a technique that uses intense light rays to stimulate the tiny oil glands which line your eyelids. These are known as meibomian glands and, with the help of the light, they will start producing the natural fluid needed to keep your eyes functioning well.
