      Centre for Sight:

      Unsure where treatment is carried out; they mentioned the Harley Street location when I contacted them a few weeks ago but this might be where the assessment is done.

        Blepharitis

        Hello Guys,
        Irish, can you put the Express link in the Blepharitis section in case people miss it. I am useless at such things.
        Not sure I would want to try it until it has had more trials but it is great to hear of such developments.

              500 GBP per eye is ridiculus....

                With a slight discount for two! Perhaps it will come down in price as more people use it - but they need to get positive results first. The information sent to me indicated 79% people reported improved symptoms 4 weeks after treatment. (controlled study)

                This is taken from:

                http://www.lipiflow.com/en/your-doct...use/in-office/

                "........Treatment: The disposable LipiFlow® eyepiece fits around the lower lid and is shaped to prevent contact with the cornea. Once in place, you can simply recline in the exam room chair during the procedure, which takes approximately 12 minutes for each eye. And within two weeks, most patients experience a decrease in their symptoms......"

                (How many is most?)

                I somehow imagine that additional follow up consultation fees could be added to treatment costs - but I might be wrong on this.
