It is imperative that if you have any eye or vision symptoms that you book an appointment, or contact us directly if it is urgent.
The symptoms to pay attention to are
Red, sore eyes
A sudden drop, or loss, of vision
Flashing lights or sudden spots (floaters) in your vision
Sudden onset double vision (seeing two of everything)
The general rule is if it comes on quickly, you need to tell us quickly! Not all eye problems are painful so DO NOT ignore something that is painless.
Many consultations may be done by phonecall or videolink to reduce contact as much as possible.
If you have any of these symptoms call us. If it is outside our working hours and it cannot wait please call NHS24 on 111.
