Minor Eye Conditions Service

MECS is a free service available to all patients registered with a City and Hackney GP, Islington GP, and Tower Hamlets GP. The service is designed for the assessment and treatment of recently occurring medical eye conditions.
The service is provided by local optometrists with the specialist knowledge and skills to carry out this work. Details of optometrists providing the service can be found by scrolling down the page.

The service does not replace the routine eye examination, eye tests or prescriptions for spectacles and a sight test will not be performed as part of the assessment or treatment and you will not be issued with a prescription for spectacles.
