Altomed can serve the requirements of optometrists in two main areas:

  • Diagnostic examinations of the eye using Volk lenses and the Optyse ophthalmoscope
  • Treatment of the symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome using lachrymal plugs, and related instrumentation

Volk Lenses

Altomed are official UK dealers for Volk. We carry an extensive inventory of lenses, so next day delivery is possible for most orders. Friendly advice is free, and given with pleasure.

Treatment of Dry Eye

Altomed supply two main types of occluding plugs for the treatment of Dry Eye symptoms. Ideal for the optometrist are the ‘external’ Punctum Plug products. These are ‘grommet’ type silicone rubber plugs that are usually placed in the lower puncta (the opening of the inferior lachrymal canaliculi on the lower lid area). These ‘grommet’ are easily visualized when in place and can be removed if no longer needed.

Altomed can also supply ‘internal’ Herrick Lachrymal Plugs. When inserted these plugs dwell in the Canaliculi. Other dry eye related products available from Altomed include punctum dilators and lachrymal washout cannula. If you would like information about these products please contact Altomed customer services or email.
