Scope Ophthalmics is using Optrafair to launch its Tear Clinic concept which it hopes will transform the way optical practices identify and manage dry eye among patients.
Using a suite of tools to diagnose dry eye among patients and a range of products to manage it, Scope said patients benefit from a better quality of life and reduced long-term risks from better protection of the ocular surface.
Included within the Tear Clinic concept is osmolarity-based detection methods, education and Scope’s range of treatment options.
One practice which has trialed the Tear Clinic is Hammond and Dummer of Milton Keynes. Claire Ranger, Owner and prescribing optometrist said the benefits to the practice and the patients were clear while managing dry eye helped retention.
‘We have been able to provide tailored and ongoing support for dry eye disease sufferers; improving their quality of life and our confidence in treating this growing problem. We offer Tear Clinic to all contact lens wearers and have significantly decreased the number of patients who stop wearing lenses due to discomfort. Tear Clinic is a win-win-win solution, patients have better outcomes, our optometrists have second to none disease knowledge, and our practice has seen a strong return on investment.’
