I had the best experience working with Dr Crawley. I felt looked after and she took the time to get to know me. I would highly recommend her.

Sven K. | Brighton

From the moment I met her to the moment I left, I was treated with great courtesy and kindness, and everything was explained to me in layman’s terms so I could fully understand my condition. I was immensely impressed.

Mariah P. | London

Dear Laura,
Just a quick note to say thanks for looking after my mum Mrs M. so wonderfully. It was so good of you to take so much time and care as she was very worried about my appointment and you really made such a difference to my experience. Thank you.

Ruth S. | Oxford

Dear Angela and Laura,
Thank you very much for seeing me yesterday. You were both marvellous and a pride to the NHS. You could, if you two wish, send this to your line manager. Thank you again!

Rebecca K. | Brighton

Dear Laura,
Enjoy your holiday and thanks for everything so far.
Best Wishes

Answers to common eye treatment questions

The quickest and easiest way to get rid of a chalazion!

August 16th, 2018|

The key to getting rid of it as soon as possible is to apply heat directly to the affected lid to dilate the blocked gland opening. This will also soften the trapped material within the blocked duct, making it easier for it to be massaged out with gentle pressure. The key to doing lid heat and massage effectively is to aim for 1-2 minutes of heat and to use a cotton flannel or muslin - they are thicker than cotton wool and will hold the heat for longer. Warm tap water is fine for heating the cloth, and it should feel soothingly warm rather than very hot. You will need to rewarm your flannel under the tap to achieve 60-90 seconds of heat and make sure that you are holding it over the opening to the blocked duct or gland. Often people hold the flannel around the eye socket, but this is too far away from the affected area to be helpful.

If you have glaucoma and need cataract surgery

June 20th, 2018|

A fast-track treatment for individuals with glaucoma who also need cataract surgery is a game changer because it dramatically reduces the time that patients will spend in surgery and recovery. Thanks to medical advances, both conditions can now be treated in the same operation, meaning that the recovery time for patients is exactly the same as for a single cataract operation. Laura Crawley and her colleagues at the Western Eye Hospital at Imperial College NHS Healthcare Trust were one of the first teams in the UK to offer revolutionary laser therapy and micro-stent implants to glaucoma patients.
