What to do in an Eye Health Emergency
If you woke up with:
a red eye,
a painful eye,
discharge from your eye,
What would you do?
We hope that we would be the first place that you would contact for advice. All our Optometrists have studied and trained for over 4 years to be able to diagnose what is wrong with your eyes.
We were staggered to read that a large percentage of patients would go to the Pharmacy or their Doctor before thinking of going to their Optometrist.
We have sophisticated equipment and techniques to decide why your eye is causing you a problem.
We do charge a fee of £21 for an emergency appointment but you can be sure that we will see you quickly, no 5 hour waits in A and E, and the diagnosis will be organised quickly and efficiently.
If onward referral to Hospital is found to be necessary then of course this will be arranged
Make your Optometrist the first port of call when you have an eye emergency
