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.

Hospital accident and emergency contact numbers:

  • York: 01904 726588
  • Harrogate: 01423 553300
  • Scarborough: 01723 342145
  • Northallerton: 01609 763334
  • Leeds: 01132 432799

Explain that you have had Tropicamide 1% eye drops at your retinal screening appointment and that you have pain or severe discomfort in your eyes.

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
