For full details on this service, click this link

The Stockport Minor Eye Conditions’ Service provides assessment and treatment for people with recently occurring minor eye conditions.

The service is provided by MECS accredited optometrists (also known as opticians) across Stockport who have specialist knowledge, training and skills.

Minor eye conditions that can be treated by the service include:

– Red eye or eyelids
– Dry eye gritty and uncomfortable eyes
– Irritation and inflammation of the eye
– Significant recent sticky discharge from the eye or watery eye
– Recently occurring flashes and floaters
– Painful eye
– Ingrowing eyelashes
– Recent and sudden loss of vision
– Foreign body in the eye

If you are unsure whether your symptoms can be assessed and treated by the service, please contact one of the participating optometry practices who will advise you.

NOTE: If you have an eye condition that is being regularly monitored by your optometrist or hospital eye service, this will not be covered by MECS; for example cataracts, diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma.



Who is the service for?
The service is for people registered with a Stockport GP. It is for people of all ages -adults and children. Children under 16 years must be accompanied at their appointment by an adult.

How do I book an appointment with the service?
The service is provided by a number of MECS registered optometrists across Stockport. A list of participating optometrists can be found in this leaflet.

You telephone an approved optometrist directly (self-refer) to make an appointment. On contacting the optometry practice, you will be asked some questions about your symptoms in order to assess how quickly you need to be seen by the service.

Depending on your symptoms, you will be seen within 24 hours or 5 working days.)

Appointments are available during normal working hours. Some optometry practices offer appointments at the weekend. Please see the list of participating practices.
