Red Eye Clinic/Sudden Vision Loss

Stephen McKay Opticians are now accredited with the NI PEARS Scheme (Primary Eyecare Assessment and Referral Service).

If you develop a sudden eye problem, please contact the practice as soon as possible to request a PEARS Assessment. We will assess your eye condition and will either provide advice and treatment in the practice, or if your condition is more serious and potentially sight threatening, we will arrange a referral to the Hospital Eye Service.

The NI PEARS service is aimed at patients with sudden onset eye conditions such as:

  • Red Eyes
  • Pain and/or discomfort in the eyes or around the eye area.
  • Sudden reduction in vision
  • Recent onset or sudden increase in Flashes and/or Floaters
  • Suspected minor foreign body in the eye.

Please phone us on 02890 613485 to book an appointment, or for further information.
