Get rid of any eyelid lesion without having too much downtime!

By |November 27th, 2018|Categories: Chalazion, Eyelid Surgery|

If you have a lesion on your eyelid, it’s vital that you have it checked. It may be something harmless, such as a skin tag, cyst or mole, but there is also the chance that it might be a cancer, so it’s essential to get the right diagnosis. If the lesion is suspicious, one of our consultant ophthalmologists will remove it and carry out a biopsy. If the lesion is benign, we will simply remove it swiftly and painlessly. We offer a special one-stop assessment and treatment package for any kind of abnormal tissue on the eyelid. Read on to find out further details.

Why does my conjunctivitis keep coming back?

By |November 23rd, 2018|Categories: Allergic Eye Disease, Conjunctivitis, General Eye Conditions|

If you’re getting recurrent conjunctivitis, you need to find out what the source of the infection is. Conjunctivitis is caught from someone else, or it can arise as a result of a low-grade infection, but either way, you need to seek expert help to make sure that it’s cured once and for all. One of our patients had severe recurrent conjunctivitis to the extent where it clouded her cornea and caused her to have blurred vision. She could not get rid of it, and it was a very worrying time for her. It was only when she finally sought help at Clinica London that her problem was solved and she is now looking and feeling much better.

Why I wear sunscreen every day and why you should too

By |November 21st, 2018|Categories: Anti Wrinkle, Dermatology|

Why would you want to wear sunscreen when it’s overcast or raining? Because the sun’s powerful UVA and UVB rays can penetrate through clouds and rain, harming your skin even in poor weather conditions. Wearing sunscreen in all weathers is the best way to protect against photodamage - the process by which the skin is damaged through consistent exposure to UVA and UVB rays, contributing to premature ageing and wrinkles, as well as an increased risk of skin cancer.
