COVID-19 Emergency Eyecare Provision in Herefordshire

 

Please note, that during the COVID-19 pandemic, Optometry services are only available for emergency eyecare services, or essential services to key workers.

 

The NHS is keen to divert patients away from their GP or eye casualty. If you have a new or urgent concern with your eyes, please contact one of the practices listed below for advice.  If you are experiencing any difficulty in contacting your usual optometric practice due to reduced opening times or restrictions placed by answer machine messaging, please contact another practice on the list for advice. 

Please avoid contacting your GP or eye casualty with an eye concern – your first point of contact for any eye concerns should be one of the practices listed below. Where possible, please contact your usual optometrists opticians) practice first.

 

PLEASE CALL FIRST!!! Practices may be open, but will have a “locked door policy”. You will not be able to “turn up” and be seen.

 

You will be assessed over the telephone, and given appropriate advice - many conditions can safely be dealt with remotely, including via video applications. If the Optometrist (Optician) feels it is necessary, they will make arrangements for a physical examination. This may not be at your usual practice, and may be with a different practice (as not all practices are physically open every day).

 

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU LIVE WITH ARE EXPERIENCING A PERSISTENT COUGH OR HIGH TEMPERATURE - IN THIS CASE PLEASE CALL 111 TO DISCUS ANY URGENT EYE CONCERNS
