Emergency Acute Eye 




If you have an eye problem not linked with your normal sight test but would like an optician to have a look we run a "same day" emergency service.


Amy and Lyn have had extra training to identify and treat many eye conditions including: Red eyes, conjunctivitis, eye pain, scratches, blurred vision, lumps and bumps, flashes and floaters etc


We will try to triage you over the phone and book you in as soon as we feel appropriate , but most cases can be seen the same day. 




At our Kidsgrove practice, if your GP is within the Staffordshire area we can see you under the Staffordshire Acute eye system at no charge, covered by NHS funding. Please ring 01782 786998


Sadly in Congleton our GP's don't have a similar scheme....yet.....So if you have any eye problems, not linked to your sight test, we can see you but there will be a £30 charge. Please ring 01260 270941
