McWatters Opticians offer an Emergency Eye Clinic Newtownards & Northern Ireland wide.
Emergency Eye Clinic
If you have a sore or red eye we keep appointments free each day to see any eye emergencies.
Under this NHS funded scheme you may be referred to us by your GP, the pharmacist or you can just phone us or turn up at the practice and ask to be seen. There is no charge for an eye emergency appointment and you can come here even if we are not your regular optician.
We should be your first port of call for any sudden onset eye problems such as;
– Pain and/or discomfort in the eyes, around the eye area.
– Sudden reduction in vision in one or both eyes.
– Recent onset or sudden increase of flashes and/or floaters in one or both eyes.
– Suspected minor foreign body in the eye.
We have all the equipment necessary to check your eyes thoroughly and in most cases can save you a trip to the hospital or a wait for a doctor’s appointment.
We offer an Emergency Eye Clinic Newtownards & Northern Ireland wide.
If you live in Newtownards or surrounding areas and would need an Emergency Eye Clinic, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Who we are…
Rosemary’s journey in optometry began at the age of 14 when she first tried contact lenses. Immediately she became intrigued with the world of vision and that was when she decided she wanted to become an optometrist.
She studied in Cardiff before going on to work in independent practices in Belfast, Ballyclare and London. Having gained all this experience Rosemary then decided she wanted to start her own practice where she could ensure the patients always came first.
“The environment we have created is a balance of professional and friendly. We carry out thorough eye tests with up to date equipment and always have time for a chat too as we enjoy building relationships with our patients.
As an optician I want everyone to value their eye health and look stylish in their glasses.
I love the daily challenges of the job as I do so much more than just test eyes.
Whether it is solving the mystery of the suddenly sore red eye, or teaching all ages, 8 years old and up, to handle contact lenses, or getting the pliers out to repair and adjust squashed spectacles, every day is varied and interesting
