Look to the experts when it comes to Eyes
Opticians across West Wales have thrown their weight behind a campaign to help stop people heading straight to A&E when they have sudden eye problems.
The Choose Wise if You Hurt Your Eyes initiative is highlighting the free expert eye advice and treatment available on our high streets.
The Welsh Government drive encourages people to visit opticians to access acute eye care rather than going to a GP or hospital.
New eye symptoms can be associated with vision threatening disease and unless detected then treated early may lead to permanent damage.
Symptoms requiring urgent assessment include sudden onset of a red or uncomfortable eye, a foreign body in eye, sight problems that start quickly, seeing flashes or new floaters in vision.
Optometrists will provide an expert examination and advice on eye problems that need urgent attention and will advise on the best way to treat them. There is no charge for the appointment and the optometrist will see you within 24 hours and many optometry practices are open on Saturdays.
Research has revealed that patients are often unaware of the full range of healthcare services available to them and end up visiting and emergency department or calling 999 for an ambulance when actually an optometrist could be the best place for them to go.
The nationwide Choose Well campaign aims at helping members of the public decide where to go to get the best and most appropriate medical attention when they are unwell.
This in turn should allow busy NHS services to help the people who need them most.
Things like a simple eye injury picked up during a sports match or specks of dust or debris that have got in eyes while gardening or DIY could all be checked at the opticians.
This campaign is being supported by the Welsh Government, Optometry Wales, the RNIB, Public Health Wales, Community Pharmacy Wales, Health Boards and other health organisations.
