Dry eye syndrome (‘dry eyes’) is a common cause of eye irritation. It mainly affects older people. Artificial tears, gels and soothing ointments usually ease the symptoms.


Glaucoma is a disorder in which the optic nerve head at the back of the eye is damaged, leading to progressive, irreversible loss of peripheral vision.


Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder of the back of the eye caused by diabetes mellitus, a condition associated with a high blood sugar level.


Floaters are small condensations of normally clear tissue that ‘float’ about with movement of the eye in the vitreous humour (a jelly like substance) at the back of the eye.


Keratoconus is a condition which causes reduced vision due to a more extreme degree of astigmatism (where the front of the eye is shaped a little like a rugby ball as opposed to a football).


The condition referred to as ‘watering eye’ or ‘watery eye’, or the excessive production of tears to the point where they can overflow down the cheek is known as “epiphora”. It can have many different causes, and the treatment will depend on the cause.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Clinic Closure Notice

It is with great sadness that we have had no option but to temporarily close the Face & Eye Clinic as of Friday 27th March 2020 in order to prevent a wider spread of COVID-19.

The Face & Eye Clinic has always been committed to providing a safe environment for patients and staff, in which high quality care can be delivered. Please rest reassured that we will continue to do so as soon as we are able to reopen our clinic.

What is important to know at the moment:

  • We are calling all patients who are affected to inform them that their appointment has been cancelled – telephone consultations may be offered where appropriate.
  • During the closure our mailbox enquiries@faceandeye.co.uk will be continually monitored. We are remaining active to support you with anything you may need and will be happy to answer any queries you have.
  • You can also find information on our website http://www.faceandeye.co.uk/
  • If you are a Face & Eye post-op patient with an urgent concern, please call the mobile number for your consultant which you were provided with when discharged. Please be aware that, during this period of closure, the consultants may not be able to respond immediately, as they may be undertaking vital NHS work. If you do not receive a response, please email enquiries@faceandeye.co.uk

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. We will keep you updated on any changes and look forward to seeing you back at the clinic very soon.

Please stay at home, stay positive and look after each other.
