Emergency Eye Appointments


The Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS) Or the Covid-19 Urgent Eye Service (Cues) provide a way for our optometrists to manage eye conditions in practice without patients having the long wait to see their GP or visit A&E.

This free service is provided by our specially trained and accredited MECS optometrists and opticians.

Eye-related symptoms and minor eye conditions that can be treated by the service include:

  • Red / sore / dry / watery eyes
  • Discharge from the eyes
  • Itchy eyes
  • Painful / light sensitivity
  • Flashing lights and floaters
  • Sudden loss or reduction in vision
  • Visual aura / migraines
  • Double vision
  • Contact lens related problems
  • And many more!

If you have any eye issue please call us and a member of our reception staff will run through a series of questions to decide how soon you need to be seen or whether you require a normal eye examination. We aim to solve your eye issues in practice, which saves you time and leads to resolving your eye issue quickly.

In fact, 70% of patients seen under the Urgent Eye Service do not require further appointments and are discharged after their first visit.
