It is easy to take our eyes for granted and just assume they will keep working well without any  special care. Most of the time that is true but sometimes they do need a little extra attention or treatment. this can take the form of rest and relaxation, soothing natural herbal remedies or more targeted medical interventions.

  • Rest and relaxation – ranges from taking 10minutes to sit back and close your eyes to simple exercises to remind the focusing system of the how it needs to work for maximum efficiency
  • Natural herbal remedies – the tissues of the eye and the skin around the eye are very delicate and easily damaged so care must be taken when appliing anything within a two centimate area aroung the open eye. Natural rememdies range form very gentle interventions which are unlikely to harm any bodily tissues to more toxic remedies that used inappropriately could cause lasting damage.
  • Medical interventions – benefit from having been tested, approved and licenced to be used in the ocular area. These could be simple soothing drops for dry, sore eyes or surgical corrections for cataract or refractive error.
