You should call us immediately if you suffer a sudden loss of vision or intense pain in one eye or sudden onset of flashing lights and/or floaters in your vision. Any sudden changes in your vision should also be reported (e.g. sudden blur or double vision). Initially, you should describe the problem to a receptionist who will pass the details to an Optometrist who will decide if you need to be seen the same day.
All emergency appointments will be charged at either £15 or £25.
