Minor Eye Problems Self Referral

If you have a recent problem with your eyes – such as sore eyes, red eyes or visual disturbance – and you are registered with a GP practice in the London borough of Richmond, you can be assessed and treated by our local minor eye conditions service located within participating local opticians.

About the minor eye conditions service

The minor eye conditions service is a free NHS service available from a number of local opticians.

Minor eye conditions that can be seen under the service include:

  • Red eye or eyelids
  • Dry eye, or gritty and uncomfortable eyes
  • Irritation and inflammation of the eye
  • Significant recent sticky discharge from the eye or watery eye
  • Recently occurring flashes or floaters
  • In-growing eyelashes
  • Recent and sudden loss of vision
  • Foreign body in the eye

Note

This service is not for sight tests.

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