What can be treated?

Most eye conditions do not need to be treated in a regional NHS hospital and can be looked after in one of your local evolutio Eye Clinic, often quicker and more conveniently for you.

– Red eye, dry eyes, watery eyes

– Foreign body removal (something in your eye)

– Flashing lights and floaters

– Glaucoma & Ocular Hypertension

– Neurology, headaches and blurred vision

– Eye lid lumps, cysts, styes or ingrowing eye lashes

– Infection, pain and viruses

– Scleritis and Episcleritis

– Retinal Disease and anomalies

– Macular Degeneration (diagnosis & monitoring) & anomalies

– YAG laser surgery (Glaucoma & Posterior Capsulotomies)

– Partially sighted and low vision registration and aids

This means you can be seen closer to home and normally within a couple of weeks.

Routine waiting lists can be up to 18 weeks in a busy NHS Eye Hospital, whereas your local Ophthalmology Diagnostic & Treatment Centre will on average offer you an appointment within 4 weeks, or even within 24 hours if it’s clinically Urgent.
