If you suffer from a red eye or irritation then book in for a MECS or See & Treat appointment. MECS appointments are available within 5 days and sometimes even on the same day. Examinations will be performed by one of our accredited Optometrists within our fully equipped practices. Treatment and diagnosis will be within the practice for as many patients as possible, thus avoiding unnecessary referrals to the hospital eye service. Where referral to Ophthalmology services is required, it will be to a suitable specialist with appropriate urgency.
Patients can self-refer or be referred into the service by their own GP (or the practice nurse or surgery receptionist), Pharmacist, other Optometrist.
