Minor eye condition experise

A SUTTON optical team is using its clinical expertise to help fellow opticians gain qualifications to treat minor eye conditions (MECs) on behalf of the NHS.

As part of Specsavers’ plans to have all optometrists trained to MECS Level 2, Nigel Davidson, optometrist and director at Specsavers in the Idlewells Shopping Centre, has become a lead assessor for the Wales Optometry Postgraduate Education Centre (WOPEC), meaning they can now hold WOPEC optometry training and assessments in-store.

Nigel said: “It means that our customers are confident that they are getting the best possible care from experts. This is something that we’ve worked hard to achieve as a team, and we want to share our expertise.

“The store already leads the way by holding clinics to treat MECs on behalf of the NHS, meaning people will not have to wait for GP or hospital appointments for this type of care. Anyone experiencing pain, discomfort, redness, sudden changes or flashes of light in their vision, among other symptoms, can access these services.”
