Minor eye and vision problems
If you have any eye or vision concerns please visit your local optician. Visit www.nhs.uk and search “Find an optician near you”
Your optician may refer you to the Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS) if you have eye pain, sudden loss of vision, foreign bodies, lid problems or flashes and floaters.
This is an NHS funded service and you can self-refer into it. For a list of participating optical practices, view our Minor Eye Conditions Service leaflet or ask your local optician, pharmacist or GP practice. A GP appointment is not necessary.
