New eye service available to residents with a Southampton city GP PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 26 September 2017
eye PR shotRather than attending the eye emergency department for less serious eye conditions, Southampton residents registered with a city GP can now make an appointment with the ‘minor eye condition service’ (MECS) at participating opticians, and be assessed by an accredited optometrist.

Concerns covered by MECS include:

 Sudden onset of blurred vision

 Ocular pain or discomfort

 Dry eye, or gritty and uncomfortable eyes

 Differential diagnosis of the red eye

 Foreign body and emergency contact lens removal

 Epiphora (watery eye)

 Trichiasis (in growing eyelashes)

 Differential diagnosis of lumps and bumps in the vicinity of the eye

 Flashes/floaters*

*if these are new or suddenly worse it is recommended that you are seen by MECS or by eye-emergency within 24hrs
