Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS)

If you have a recent problem with your eyes, such as sore eyes, red eyes or visual disturbance you can be assessed and treated by our local Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS).

This is a free NHS service for patients registered with a GP in the Vale of York and Scarborough and Ryedale, and is available from a number of local opticians.

The service is open to adults (18 years old and over) from 1 December 2018 and will be extended to anyone aged two years of age or older from 2 January 2019 (children under 16 years must be accompanied at their appointment by an adult).

More information about the service, and the optician practices which provide it, can be found here.

This service is provided by Healthcare Business Solutions Limited
