You may wish to bring sunglasses with you as the eye drops may make your eyes sensitive to light

Arranging transport

Please ensure you plan your transport arrangements as you should not drive away from your screening appointment. (The eye drops given during the appointment will blur your vision, which may invalidate your car insurance.)

If you cannot use public transport and have no friends or family available to bring you, you may be able to arrange for volunteer or ambulance transport.

Unfortunately, we cannot book this transport for you. However, our Bookings Team can provide you with the number to call based on your location. Appointments must be booked between 10am and 12pm.
