Minor Eye Problems?

If you have a recent eye problem– such as sore eyes, red eyes or visual disturbance – you can be seen by us through our Minor Eye Conditions Service.

 

Conditions that can be seen under the service include:

● Red eye or eyelids
● Dry eye, or gritty and uncomfortable eyes
● Irritation and inflammation of the eye
● Significant recent sticky discharge from the eye or watery eye
● Recently occurring flashes or floaters
● Ingrowing eyelashes
● Recent and sudden loss of vision
● Foreign body in the eye

 

 

If you are unsure whether your symptoms can be assessed and treated by us, please contact one of our opticians who will advise you. Also, if you have a major eye condition that is being regularly monitored by an optometrist or hospital eye service, this will not be covered by this service; for example, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma.

Please note, this is not a sight test.

Will I Need an Appointment?

Yes, you will need to book an appointment with us to use this service. You can do this by calling us on 0121 350 5872. You will be asked some questions about your symptoms in order to assess how quickly you need to be seen by the service, which will be within 24 hours in urgent cases and within a few days for routine appointments.

Do I Need to Bring Anything With me to my Appointment?

Yes. Please bring your glasses and a list of your current medication with you to your appointment. The optometrist may put drops in your eyes to enlarge your pupils in order to get a better view inside your eyes. You should not drive until the effects of these drops have worn off, which may take a few hours.
If your condition is more serious, the optometrist will book you an urgent appointment at a hospital eye clinic. If you need a routine appointment with a hospital, the optometrist will organise this for you.
You may also be advised to make an appointment with your GP if your eye condition is related to your general health.

Who is This Service For?

If you are registered with a local GP you can use this service. It is for people of all ages – adults and children. Children under 16 years must be accompanied at their appointment by an adult
