Acute or Sudden Eye Problems

An acute or sudden eye problem can be distressing and it can be difficult to know who to contact about it.

Optometrists (ophthalmic opticians) are well placed within the community to carry out a special type of eye examination for a patient who may need to be seen urgently.

This special eye examination is carried out by the Wales Eyecare Services (WECS), who aim to find out, as quickly and effectively as possible, if an eye problem needs special care or not. 

Any member of the public can visit WECS registered optometrist if they have an acute eye problem that needs to be looked at urgently, free of charge.
