Minor Eye Care
If you have a red eye or symptoms of flashes and/or floaters please contact us immediately for an appointment. You will either be given an appointment or details of your symptoms taken, and an Optometrist will phone you back to arrange an appointment or advise you over the phone. This appointment will be covered by the NHS under a new shared care scheme, which has been implemented in Derbyshire concerning the management of minor eye conditions. This is to help relieve the burden off GP`s surgeries and A&E.
Whilst we are happy to see patients for any other eye or visual problems, this NHS scheme currently only covers red eyes or symptoms of flashes and floaters. All other concerns will need to be addressed within a normal sight test appointment. If you are unsure of which pathway is best for your particular concern, please phone us and we can advise you of the appropriate action to take.
