Minor Eye Clinic information

Minor Eye Clinic

Where should I go?

You will need to contact one of the accredited optometry practices (opticians) offering the MEC service to make an appointment. Be sure to mention that you want an appointment with the MEC service rather than just regular sight examination. Appointments are available during normal working hours with some practices also offering appointments at weekends. Not all the registered practices have an optometrist available every day. If they don’t have appointments within a week they will be able to direct you to another nearby registered optometry practice.

How do I book an appointment with the service?

To make an appointment, call one of the opticians listed below.
