Eye Problems

Eyes are very fragile and as such, they are vulnerable to a number of problems. Looking after your eyes is very important, so if you notice something which is affecting your vision then see a doctor straightaway.

The majority of eye issues are nothing to worry about and easily treated, however you should get eye problems checked out before they become more serious. Even minor conditions like dry eye can interfere with daily life, so discuss your symptoms with a GP.

Take a look at some of the conditions babylon doctors can treat.

Common eye concerns

Most people are likely to experience an issue with their eyes at some point in their life, especially as they age. There are problems inside the eye to look out for, such as dry eye syndrome, infections or cataracts. The space around the eye can also be an area for concern, with styes and eyelid cysts among the most common conditions.

Eye infections are also quite common and sometimes require medication. Blepharitis, conjunctivitis and other conditions such as contact dermatitis can cause irritation in and around the eye.

Treatment for eye problems

There are various treatments available from a GP for the wide range of eye problems. The cause of the problem will determine the exact treatment, so it’s important to get a diagnosis from a medical professional as soon as possible. Some eye problems will clear up on their own, but you can still video chat with a GP to put your mind at ease.

Treatments for eye problems usually include eye drops, gels and ointments. If you would like to discuss your eye symptoms and possible treatments, book an online appointment with us at a time that suits you.
