Eye Problem?

Often seeing an optician directly is the best option

Two services are available locally which enable you to get telephone advice and then if needed be seen by an optician on the NHS. This is for adults and children. Those under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult. They can refer on to the hospital eye departments if needed.

You can call 0300 303 4922 9am-5pm Monday to Friday to book
