COVID-19 Urgent Eyecare Service (CUES)

During the Covid-19 crisis, the Covid-19 Urgent Eyecare Service (CUES) will allow patients to gain prompt access to a remote consultation, leading to a care plan for the patient to:

  • Self-manage their ocular condition (with access to appropriate topical medications where appropriate); or
  • Be managed by their optical practitioner with advice, guidance and remote prescribing as necessary by a hospital ophthalmology service; or
  • Be appropriately referred to hospital ophthalmology services
