Suffering from an itchy, red eye? We’ll diagnose your condition and provide the right treatment

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.

An exciting development in the treatment for myopia in children – and what you can do to 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.

Half the world population will suffer from myopia by 2050, experts predict

Short-sightedness is a rapidly growing problem globally, and in Asia it is rife. In the South Korean town of Seoul, researchers have calculated that 96 per cent of young people are already myopic by the age of 19. Europe isn't far behind, with 80 to 90 per cent of youngsters up to the age of 15 estimated to be short-sighted, while in the 18 to 28 age group, 60 per cent need glasses or contact lenses to correct the condition. The incidence of myopia is growing at a rate of 10 per cent a year, and by 2050, experts estimate that half the world population will be short-sighted.

Outdoor activities help to arrest the progression of myopia

What's the best thing you can do for your myopic child? The answer is simple: get them outdoors into the fresh air. Research has shown that while indoor activities in artificial light encourage the progression of myopia in children, outdoor activities help to arrest this progression. This is because being outdoors requires us to use and strengthen our distance vision. In Europe, we are awaiting a new treatment to inhibit the progression of myopia - low-dose atropine eyedrops. However, until this becomes available in the UK, the best thing to do is encourage your child to go outside into natural light, away from artificial light, screens and indoor work.

When should you get a general eye check up? – Part 1

Any patient over the age of 55 should have an eye check up ever one to three years, even if they have no symptoms of visual problems. Once you are over 65, you should have a general eye check up every one to two years. However, you should have your eyes checked more often if you have a family history of eye disease.
