This varies depending on the type and severity of your dry eye. In most cases we will review you 2-4 weeks after the initial examination to ensure the treatment is working well and make changes to the treatment plan if required. Again depending on the extent of your dry eye we may then re-exam your eyes on a 3-6 monthly basis.
How much does it cost?
Initial dry eye examination = £75
BlepEx treatment £45
Does it hurt?
No, none of the examinations or treatments causes pain or discomfort. We may instil drops into the eyes in some cases which can be mildly stingy for a few seconds. However, the majority of the examinations involve nothing touching the eye. The Blephex lid cleaning session slightly tickles the eyelid but is not unpleasant.
