Private eye treatment: bilateral punctal occlusion to treat dry eyes

Minimal waiting times and high-quality care at your fingertips with care at Midland Eye Clinic

Midland Eye is a specialist eye clinic led by the UK’s leading ophthalmology consultant doctors. As a world-class centre of excellence for eye surgery, we focus entirely on the treatment and care of patients with a wide range of eye problems, from common complaints to rare conditions that require treatment not available elsewhere in the UK. Our ophthalmic surgeons are renowned throughout the UK and worldwide for their expertise, knowledge and experience.

Punctual occlusion to treat dry eye
Your tears serve several important functions:

  • They aid sight by helping to stabilise your vision.
  • They lubricate your eye, keeping it clean, and free of dust.
  • They protect your eye against infection.

Dry eye is the name for a group of conditions that are all related to problems with the tears you are producing. Symptoms can include:

  • Watery eyes – the tears that you make don't stick to the surface of the eye as well as they should and so your eye gets dry.
  • Feelings of dryness, grittiness, or soreness, in one or both eyes, which may get worse during the day as the eye is not getting enough moisture.
  • Redness of your eyes.
  • Blurred vision – especially when using a computer, reading and/or watching TV.
  • Your eyelids stick together or to the surface of your eyes – especially first thing in the morning.

Dry eye syndrome is often a part of the natural ageing process, but can be caused by problems with the eyelids, such as blepharitis, or as a side effect of some prescription drugs.

Tear substitutes such as drops, gels and ointments are often used to treat dry eyes. However if your dry eyes fail to respond to other forms of treatment, surgery may be an option. One surgical technique, known as punctual occlusion, involves using small plugs to seal your tear ducts.

At Midland Eye, we offer an all-inclusive self-pay package for bilateral punctal occlusion surgery starting from £295 (terms and conditions apply).
