The Glasgow Eye Hospital at Gartnavel no longer sees patients directly – only on a referral from an Optometrist, GP or Accident & Emergency Appointment.


If you have an eye problem, simply contact Hyndisght Opticians for a free eye assessment. In the majority of cases, this can be quicker than waiting for an appointment with your GP. You will receive the same type of eye examination offered by an optometrist in the hospital, and we can usually prescribe a course of treatment. If there is a more serious problem, you will be referred to a specialist at the eye hospital.

Advice on eye injuries & problems from

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

  • If you have a problem with your eyes visit a local Optometrist (Optician).

  • If your optician is closed please contact NHS 24 for advice (telephone 111).

  • If you have an eye injury that requires immediate emergency treatment go to the nearest Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. · If your eye problem requires treatment by an Eye Doctor (Ophthalmologist) your optometrist can refer you to your local hospital. Your GP and local A&E can also do this.

  • If this problem is urgent you may be referred to the new Glasgow Ophthalmology Acute Referral Centre (ARC) at Gartnavel General Hospital.

  • If you are already attending an eye clinic and have an issue regarding your condition, make your consultant’s secretary at the hospital your first call.
