Eye Casualty is a 24-hour service that treats patients with emergency eye problems.
It based in the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Centre on A Floor at QMC.
Eye Casualty deals with eye emergencies. If you have a long-standing problem you should see your optometrist or GP. Patients with an emergency eye problem will be seen immediately and will take priority over patients with non-urgent problems.
Please contact the department before attending. This helps staff to manage waiting time and make sure that if specialist tests are needed, patients attend when these tests can be carried out.
If you are attending the department as a patient, please do not drive to the department as you may need eye drops that will prevent you from driving for a minimum of six hours afterwards.
We are based on A floor at the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Centre (EENT) at QMC from 7.00am - 10.00pm.
The Emergency Service is provided on C25 in the EENT from 10.00pm - 7.00am.
