The community ophthalmology Minor Eye Conditions service (MECs) is now live.

The service provides assessment and treatment for a number of minor eye conditions, including glaucoma repeat measurement and referral refinement for patients with cataracts or suspected glaucoma.

Referrals can be made by GPs, optometrists, pharmacists, NHS 111, A&E triage and self-referral and most people will be seen on the day or within two working days. Please note that P.Shah’s practice will be launching the scheme mid-February.
