Are you bothered by a recurrent lump on your eyelid? This is most likely to be a chalazion, and it’s particularly stubborn. It may vary in size and may sometimes even shrink back, but it never goes away entirely! However, you don’t have to put up with it - at Clinica London, we offer a same-day, one-stop treatment package that will zap your chalazion for good. Click here to find out more.
Suffering from an itchy red eye is not only irritating but can make you feel self-conscious. The most likely explanation is blepharitis, which has a variety of causes. It’s important to get the problem diagnosed as soon as possible to prevent it from getting worse, and to make sure that it doesn’t come back. Our experts at Clinica London can help.
Unless we tackle the growing incidence of myopia head-on, it will soon affect most of the population. There is a lot of research under way into this condition - which is reaching epidemic proportions - and already the data for children born in 2000 show that they are developing myopia at an increasing rate. We need to deal with this escalating problem with medical treatment and a change in our behaviour, rather than relying on glasses, contact lenses and refractive surgery. In our leisure hours, we should be getting outside and taking part in activities in natural light, particularly sunlight, which involve using our distance vision.
Because of the high incidence of myopia in China and Singapore, parents and school authorities there now ensure that pupils spend more time outside, not just studying indoors, where they will be using their near vision. We hope to be able to offer a new treatment very soon that is currently in the final stages of medical research. Until then, however, it’s important to develop a plan for your child’s vision, and there is a lot that you can do at home to prevent them from developing myopia. Read on to find out how you can help your child.
