You can call your local optician for free NHS eye-care. Please tell the Opticians Receptionist that you have an eye problem so the Optometrist can triage you to find out when you can be examined. Different eye conditions have different priorities so you may not be seen urgently. If the eye condition is urgent you will be seen urgently. Please do not present to your GP practice as we aren't usually able to help with eye problems. Outside of opening hours please call NHS 24 on 111. There are two Independent Prescribing Optometrists who can prescribe medication to treat anterior eye conditions.
