CORONA VIRUS CRISIS – May 2020

The NHS halted all routine and domiciliary appointments in March 2020 but we have been available remotely for all patients who have been experiencing problems with their vision and you can access this service during normal office hours by ringing 07743730129 or 01132530904 and our Optometrist will discuss your eye problem and advise accordingly and maybe recommend self-treatments.

Following the Government’s announcement on Sunday of a phased approach to ease lock-down measures in England, we are presently working on a plan for safe re-starting of services. We are also waiting for the NHS to say that we can see routine patients again. We hope this time will be soon and as soon as we have this information we will update this page.

Thank you

World Glaucoma Week is a joint venture between the World Glaucoma Association and the World Glaucoma Patient Association and it has lasted 10 years.

Look out for local screening events, lectures, more coverage on radio and TV shows and more newspaper articles on glaucoma this week

If you have a family history of glaucoma please make it a priority to have an eye examination involving assessment of the optic nerve inside the eye, measurement of the intraocular pressure and a visual field assessment for both eyes to rule out any problems that might be due to glaucoma
