If you have pigmented moles, suspicious lesions or other troublesome skin conditions, you should see Dr Jennifer Crawley
If you suffer from pigmented moles or other lesions, such as seborrhoeic keratosis, acne or any other type of troublesome skin abnormality, you should see our consultant dermatologist, Dr Jennifer Crawley. Jennifer runs her private practice at Clinica London, where she treats and operates on skin conditions in our operating theatre. Dermatological surgery is not painful and patients often recover quickly. Jennifer can take a biopsy of any suspicious skin elevations and send them for analysis. She will also advise you on post-operative care and arrange any follow-up appointments.
Ms Laura Crawley is an expert in the treatment of glaucoma and cataracts. As well as running a private practice at Clinica London, she performs surgery for these conditions at the Western Eye Hospital in London. Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery - also known as MIGS - requires a highly skilled specialist such as Laura, who is very experienced in microscopic glaucoma surgery. She will recommend the procedure to reduce eye pressure, thus preventing or reducing damage to your optic nerve. You can book in to see Laura at Clinica London on Mondays, Wednesdays and some Fridays, although she can also see patients at short notice outside these times by special arrangement.
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.
Ms Laura Crawley is inviting you to the “Clinica London Spring Lecture” and gives an insight into Microsurgical advances in Glaucoma surgery.
