To help us keep on top of the health of your eyes, we’re offering our patients a later appointment on a Thursday. So just relax. Enjoy a cup of coffee, look through our new frame collection and take your time.
You can now keep on top of your eye health regime if you suffer from: dryness, itching, crusting or inflammation. You may have blepharitis or ‘dry eye’ disease but there's no need to worry.

We are offering this exclusively to our Concept, Tynemouth patients as a single treatment or, for peace of mind, as part of a new eye hygiene care plan.
