Select Duncan and Todd and 20 20 Opticians have begun to offer specialist eyecare services to diagnose and manage ocular surface disease, relieving patients of dry eye symptoms and preventing long-term complications.
Ocular surface disease is a multi-factorial disease of the tears and ocular surface. This general term is used to describe a range of conditions that affect the surface of the eye including dry eye disease, blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction. Although largely undiagnosed, nearly 50% of those with dry eye disease say it affects their work life.*
Supported by Scope Ophthalmics, branches within the Duncan and Todd Group are keen to be able to offer relief to sufferers. The clinics are new to 20 20 Opticians on Queen Street and Gorgie Road in Edinburgh, as well as Duncan and Todd on Belmont Street in Aberdeen. Within these dedicated appointments, patients will be provided with expert advice on treatments options from a specialist optician, reducing the likelihood of hospital intervention. Patients can contact the branches direct to book an appointment at the clinics.
