Message from ICO President & Eye Doctor Patricia Quinlan
These are very challenging times for patients and for the wider population. Covid 19 is causing significant concerns, but all of the illnesses and conditions that would normally present are still occuring.
I know many patients may be reluctant to attend their doctor or hospital at the present moment to both avoid contracting the coronavirus, but also not to put added pressure on the health service at this time.
However, if you or any of your family members experience sudden vision loss or significant pain in your eye, it is important that you contact your eye doctor and seek medical advice.
Patients with emergencies are and will continue to be cared for.
