Minor Eye Conditions Community Service


This page provides basic information about a service suitable for self referral. Direct patients to the service provider using the details below.

The Minor Eye Conditions Community Service (MECs) is an NHS-funded service available to all patients registered with an Islington GP. Assessment and treatment of recently occurring medical eye conditions is provided by local optometrists with the specialist knowledge and skills to carry out this work.

The service does not replace routine eye examinations, eye tests or prescriptions for spectacles. A sight test is not performed as part of the assessment or treatment, and prescriptions are not offered for spectacles.

The service also offers glaucoma repeat measurement and refinement and cataract screening.

MECs services in Islington are run in three locations:

  • Specsavers Holloway, 11 Seven Sisters Road, London, N7 6AJ
  • Specsavers Islington, 68 Chapel Market, London, N1 9ER
  • Myeyes Opticians, 68 Exmouth Market, London, EC1R 4QP.
