Emergency Eyecare

Emergency Eye Appointments– At Rifkind and Brophy, we specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of eye conditions. Your Optometrist is your first port of call for any eye complaint. If you have an eye issue, and your own optician cannot see you, we are happy to see you. We keep dedicated emergency appointments available on a daily basis for those in need, so do not hesitate to call if you require advice.

Our Optometrist is highly experienced working within practice and at the Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion.

We are Independent Prescribing which means that our Optometrist has undertaken higher accreditation that allows him to diagnose, manage and treat most eye conditions including any prescription medication if required. A service not found at most other Opticians. We currently work with the Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion and have experience dealing many eye condition, no matter what complexity.

If you have an eye issue such as

  • A painful red eye,
  • eye or eyelid inflammation/infection
  • itchy, watery or dry eyes
  • a rapid change in your vision,
  • new flashing lights or floaters in your vision,

then it is important that you seek advice from your optometrist.

We urge you to always make your optometrist your first port of call with any eye ailment. GPs and pharmacists do not have the specialist experience that we do.

Whatever the issue, be it a suspected eye infection, a scratch or just something you feel you would like checked out, please call do not hesitate to call. Same day appointments are available.

If you require any medication, such as eye drops for conjunctivitis or other infections, we are able to prescribe them for you, in the same way your GP would.
