Tips on how to put on sunscreen

By |March 27th, 2019|Categories: Dermatology, Jennifer Crawley|

In Britain, we've become accustomed to gloomy weather, even during the summer, so sunscreen is often the last thing on our minds. However, when the sun does come out, we can't wait to go outside and bask in the warmth and light. The thought of putting on sunscreen can seem like a boring and messy chore, and we find excuses not to wear it. However, even on cloudy days the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays can damage our skin, and it's vital not only to wear the right protective sunscreen but to apply it properly. Read our consultant's tips here to make sure you're properly protected.

At what age should you get a general eye check-up?

By |March 12th, 2019|Categories: General Eye Conditions|

It can be frustrating to have had perfect eyesight all your life and then find, usually in your 40s, that you’re squinting at small print you could once read with ease. So we recommend that everyone has regular eye tests from the age of 40. But eye tests are not just about choosing the trendiest glasses to correct age-related vision deterioration! Regular tests are essential for spotting the early signs of potentially sight-threatening diseases, such as glaucoma, so that you can start treatment straight away and minimise the need for more invasive intervention.

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.
