Need reassurance.

Have a VERY VERY sore eye, have been to opticians and they've refereed me to specialist.

I'd rather not go into more detail here but I'm in a lot of pain and really worried so would really appreciate if someone could discuss via pm?

I'm neither but there is an eye a and e service in some areas. Have you tried 111?

Thanks special but I'm in arse end of nowhere - very ltd a&e services of any kind. I did see my optician and have been referred but I'm scared what it might be.

Sorry, wasn't too clear - the service gets you a quick ( i.e. Monday) appointment with a specialist optician, who may be in another practice. They can have a good look and then get what is needed quickly.

I hope the other poster can give real help.
