See how easily you can get conjunctivitis treatment in London
Conjunctivitis can appear overnight, and it can happen to anyone.
- One or two sticky eyes
- Swollen eyelids closing up the eye
If you are stuck in London while visiting on holiday, or you are at work in London, and you have suddenly developed conjunctivitis, with either one or two sticky, red eyes, you will need to see an ophthalmologist locally. You can go and wait in a casualty queue at one of the eye hospitals, for instance, Moorfields Eye Hospital or the Western Eye Hospital, and they will triage you according to the urgency of your problem. Then you will either be seen by the nurse or by the doctor after a period of waiting.
If you want to be more specific about who you see and when you can call Clinica London. You can ask to see one of our consultant ophthalmologists, who are available to diagnose and treat your condition. Clinica London sees patients every day with urgent eye problems. We will always do our best to find you a slot with the doctor on the same day, at a specified time. The ophthalmologist will assess your conjunctivitis and advise on the various approaches you can take to make it more tolerable by improving your symptoms.
Unfortunately, as is very often the case with this condition, it is not always possible to shorten the length of time that will you have conjunctivitis, but the ophthalmologist can certainly advise you on how to make it a less unpleasant experience. They will give you advice on infection control, on whether you need antibiotics or other eye drops, how to clean around the peri-orbital area and they will make you aware of some red-flag warning signs, should it get worse.
