Red eyes


These can be innocent or sight threatening and will need to be assessed under the local NHS paid for MECS scheme. If you notice glare as well as a red eye that is a definite pointer for your eyes to be assess very soon. Some clients with red eyes have minor bleeds due to taking blood thinners or high blood pressure.

This is an example of two red eyes, one showing significantly more redness – injection. This can be due to infection or inflamation. We can assess this under a locally paid for NHS scheme = MECS.
