Assessing your eyes

At The Edinburgh Eye Clinic, we offer a wide range of assessments for your eyes. Our approach combines the skills of our specialist consultants and specialist ophthalmic nurse with the latest diagnostic technology and the highest standards of patient care.


Blepharitis is a common condition that affects the eyelid margins of both eyes and can occur in children and adults. It is a low-grade chronic infection caused by common skin bacteria and can cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms, such as crusting, irritation, eyelid margin redness, watery eyes and burning or itching of the eyelids.


Bags underneath the eyes are a tell-tale sign of aging and can make us look worn out and drained. These bags develop because our skin loses elasticity and the muscles under the eyes lose firmness, which causes fat to store in them more easily.

In order to improve the appearance of the eyes, many people resort to having eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty, as it’s medically known, helps the eyes to look more youthful by reducing and tightening the loose skin.

Eyelids: ectropion, entropion & ptosis
