See your Optician
Adults should see an optician every 2 years for an eye check and follow their advice re future appointments. Check ups are free. If you develop a sudden new eye problem such as pain, redness, swelling, visual disturbance, opticians can see you as an emergency and deal with the problem. They have the equipment to examine your eye in detail. Opticians can also refer you to hospital if needed.

The Scottish executive has advised GP's to avoid prescribing certain addictive drugs eg. Diazepam, Lorazepam and various others. They are not licensed for long term use and are harmful when used over long periods. It is practice policy to reduce these drugs slowly until stopped and it may be necessary to dispense daily to achieve this.
