Community Eye Care Service

Please see leaflet for more information

What is CECS?

Symptoms that can be seen under the service include:
• Loss of vision, including transient loss
• Flashes and floaters
• Ocular pain and irritation
• Eye infections that have not responded to treatment
• Trichiasis (in growing eyelashes).

If you have dry eye or red eye symptoms you may be advised to self-care or seek support from your local pharmacy first.

Who is this service for?

If you are registered with a local GP (Vale of York CCG or North Yorkshire CCG) you can use this service. It is for people of most ages – adults and children over the age of 2 years. Children under 16 years must be accompanied at their appointment by an adult.
