Advanced Care for Optimal Eye Health

Personalised Solutions for Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome is when the eyes do not produce enough tears or tears evaporate too quickly, leading to inflammation and irritation. Our practice is at the forefront of dry eye diagnosis and treatment, focusing on post-menopausal women's challenges. We offer advanced BlephEx® treatments to effectively relieve symptoms, ensuring each patient receives care tailored to their needs for the best outcomes. This approach targets the core issues of dry eye, reducing inflammation and discomfort for improved eye health.

Blepharitis Relief with BlephEx® Treatment

Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids, often affecting where the eyelashes grow. We offer advanced blepharitis treatment, including BlephEx®. This innovative procedure is a clinically proven tool that effectively removes biofilm, bacterial exotoxins, and other debris from the eyelid margin. BlephEx® treatment provides immediate relief from blepharitis and promotes long-term eyelid hygiene.

Complete Myopia Control for Children

Shortsightedness (myopia) is a vision condition in which you see objects nearby clearly, but those far away appear blurred. This occurs when the eye shape causes light rays to refract incorrectly, focusing images in front of the retina instead of on it. Myopia is concerning because it can worsen over time, increasing the risk of future eye problems.

We offer comprehensive myopia management services, including orthokeratology (ortho-k). This involves wearing contact lenses overnight to gently reshape the cornea, temporarily allowing clear vision without visual aids during the day. This non-surgical solution is particularly effective for children.

Alongside ortho-k, we use the latest instruments and technology to diagnose, monitor, and treat myopia, ensuring personalised care plans that slow progression. Our approach aims to provide our young patients with effective, non-invasive options to control myopia and enhance their quality of life.

Glaucoma Testing and Treatment

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, vital for good vision. Abnormally high pressure in the eye often causes this damage. At Balmain Vision, we offer glaucoma testing and management to preserve your vision. Using the latest diagnostic tools, including our in-house Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), we can detect glaucoma at its earliest stages, allowing for timely intervention. Our approach is tailored to each patient, focusing on preventing the progression of the disease and maintaining optimal eye health.

Macular Degeneration Management

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the macula, the part of the retina responsible for sharp, central vision needed for activities like reading and driving. AMD is one of the leading causes of vision loss in older adults.

We manage AMD with advanced care designed to preserve vision and enhance quality of life. With our state-of-the-art OCT technology, we detect early signs of the disease, allowing for timely intervention. Our approach is tailored to each individual, providing comprehensive management plans that may include lifestyle adjustments, dietary recommendations, and treatment options to slow progression.

Detecting and Managing Diabetic Eyes

Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication that affects the eyes. Damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina) causes this disease. Initially, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms; however, it can develop into a severe condition leading to blindness.

We prioritise the health and vision of patients with diabetes, offering comprehensive diabetic eye care services. Our management plans focus on preventing disease progression and preserving vision, incorporating cutting-edge treatments and lifestyle advice to mitigate the impact of diabetes on eye health.

Cataract Care: From Diagnosis to Recovery

Cataracts are where the eye's lens becomes cloudy, leading to decreased vision. Cataracts are often related to aging but can also result from genetic factors, other diseases, or injuries. You can treat cataracts surgically with a common and generally safe procedure. During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens, known as an intraocular lens (IOL), to restore clear vision.

Balmain Vision offers comprehensive cataract diagnosis and management, ensuring patients receive quality care from detection to post-surgery recovery. We work closely with leading surgeons to co-manage cataract surgery, providing seamless and integrated patient care.
