EyePrint utilises impressions or scans of the ocular surface to design specialised contact lenses that match the shape of each individual eye.

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT THERAPY
Keeping with our policy of investing in the latest technology, we are one of the first practices in the UK to have an Eye-Light. This photo-biomodulation device uses Intense Pulse Light to stimulate the nerves, and the blood vessels surrounding the Meibomian glands (which produce the oily part of the tears), to stimulate meibum secretion.
Initially, three treatments are required (spread over 4-6 weeks), lasting approximately 45minutes each, followed by an annual treatment. This treatment is recommended as an additional treatment for patients who are already doing ‘the basics’.
At TK&S we use state-of-the-art techniques to clean your eye lashes and eyelid margin – ensuring your eyes are as clean and as healthy as possible.
Healthy eyelids can guard against the onset of conditions such as blepharitis and the presence of demodex – a type of mite that lives in the oil glands of human hair follicles.
By taking advantage of 21st century techniques and technology we can help you keep the bugs at bay.

Myopia is one of the conditions idetified by the World Health Organisation as a potential cause of blindness. It is currently estimated that Myopia affects 30% of the world’s population, and this number is projected to be nearly 50% by 2050.
Projected increases are widely considered to be driven by environmental factors such as decreased outdoors time, increased near work, and high pressure educational systems especially at young ages.
Sight is one of our five major senses: hearing, touch, smell and taste are the other four. Through our senses we are able to experience the world. But we don’t rely on all senses equally. About 80% of the way we experience the world as children is through vision.
We watch, we read, we learn. We need good vision to read the whiteboard, watch the science demonstration at the front of the class, and catch a ball during PE.
