Ingrowing eyelashes and their removal

Ingrowing eyelashes and their removal

Ingrowing eye lashes are quite common and can cause minor irritation. Longer and more persistent lashes can cause abrasions on the cornea. Abrasions on the front of the eye are best avoided and the eyelash should be removed. Eye lash removal is called epilation. We can remove in growing eyelashes easily and virtually without discomfort. To remove an ingrowing eyelash we would first examine the front of your eye to check for any abrasions to your eye. The examination for this is paid for by the NHS under a local MECS scheme. Once we are sure the discomfort is due to an eyelash it can be removed with some small tweezers. Again this removal is paid for by the NHS MECS scheme. There is no risk to your sight during the removal. Call us today to for an appointment.
