Went to A&E today due to seeing flashing lights. Dr. looked in my eyes with a light and said he could not see anything obvious but said there could be something wrong with my retina and to see my GP.
I thought it was best to get my eyes checked as the NHS website says flashing lights if caused by retina detachment is a medical emergency.and xray or scans and other tests would be needed to rule this out. As i dont have a ms diagnosis i wanted to be sure it was nothing serious.
I feel let down and not taken seriously and will think twice about going to the emergency department again.
