In Scotland the NHS eye examination covers a basic first line dry eye assessment but where this is ineffective, specialist assessment and treatment must be paid for privately.
Due to the ongoing nature of dry eye problems, we would recommend that our Vision+ care plan is the best way to ensure optimum care for your eyes and for us to be able to review your eyes appropriately ensuring the best results.
Vision+ for dry eyes costs £23 per month and includes:
If you are not part of the vision+ care plan then an initial one-hour long assessment at the dry eye clinic is £150 which includes an initial assessment, the development of your management plan and a follow up phone call to review your progress. Any subsequent follow up appointments would be charged at £55 per visit.
Three monthly replacements of punctal plugs costs £95 per visit including the replacement plugs.
To make an initial appointment please contact the practice on 0131 225 2235 or e-mail on email@example.com.
