What to do if you have problems after screening

Problems after eye screening are uncommon. If you experience a problem with your vision after screening you should contact us on 01904 726640.

In rare cases, the eye drops can cause a sudden rise in pressure in the eye. This only happens in people who are already at risk of developing this problem. When it happens it needs prompt treatment.

If you have any pain or severe discomfort in or over your eyes following your appointment, please contact your local accident and emergency department.
