How Do I Book an Appointment With the Service?
If the service is available in your area, then you can choose and contact an optical practice directly to make an appointment. This is called self-referral.
Find a local optical practice that offers Urgent Eyecare Service appointments.
You should contact your chosen optical practice by telephone and ask for an urgent eyecare service appointment. Please do not visit the practice without first booking an appointment. You will be asked some questions about your symptoms to assess your needs. More urgent cases will be seen within 24hrs.
You will be contacted by an Urgent Eyecare Service optometrist within a few hours to discuss your symptoms further, either by phone or video call.
If you have very minor symptoms the optometrist may advise you how to manage the condition yourself or how to seek support from your local pharmacy.
