Jenny Eclair bids farewell to Dry Eyes

Optical Express’ Shaftesbury Avenue clinic had the pleasure of welcoming Jenny Eclair in April 2018 for LipiFlow treatment – a non-invasive procedure which takes just minutes and alleviates symptoms associated with Dry Eye Syndrome.

Most well-known for her part in the British comedy ‘Grumpy Old Women’, Jenny has become a household name over the years thanks to her straight talking comedy, quick wit and appearances on panel shows.

Having suffered from Dry Eye Syndrome for over six months, Jenny used a variety of complicated treatments to ease her symptoms on a daily basis. After deciding that enough was enough, she sought advice from her local clinic about the revolutionary Lipiflow treatment, available at Optical Express.

Jenny said: “After struggling with dry eye for a long time and needing constant drops and hot dressings, I was delighted to be told by the Optical Express team that I was a suitable candidate for Lipiflow.

“After an initial consultation, which included scans and a great deal of helpful advice and information, I booked myself in for the Lipiflow procedure. Two weeks later, I’m delighted with the results.

“The treatment itself is painless and takes just 12 minutes. My eyes are so much better, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lipiflow to anyone who is suffering with the miserable discomfort of Dry Eye.”

Lipiflow is a revolutionary treatment that targets the cause of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, which is one of the main causes of dry eye symptoms. Eyepieces are placed on the patient’s eyelids, where they apply gentle heat and intermittent pressure to unblock the glands.

Jenny concluded: “Optical Express treated me with complete kindness and professionalism. They made no false promises and I feel very fortunate to have benefitted from their incredibly sophisticated expertise.”

Meesha Tanna, Clinical Director at Optical Express, said: “We were thrilled to welcome Jenny to our Shaftesbury Avenue clinic. She has become a household name over the years, and a recognisable face on screens and stages across the country, so we were delighted she opted to undergo her treatment with us.

“We’re so pleased that Jenny has had such a positive experience with us and look forward to following her journey as she continues her tour.”
