Red Eye Clinic and Urgent Care
Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS)
Pagan & McQuade’s Optometrists are accredited with the MECS scheme (Minor Eye Conditions Service) to provide clinical appointments and advice for red eyes and other conditions.
This expansion of Optometrist care allows us to investigate and monitor more eye conditions on your behalf than the standard NHS sight test. We have found the uptake of this service to be very well received by patients in the local area. Entitlement for NHS funding for your appointment is dependent on being registered with a local GP practice.
MECS eye appointments are also available with Pagan & McQuade Opticians privately.
If you have an eye concern, ask us first and you might save yourself a trip to the hospital.
