A gentleman of 80 reported as an emergency to Sidmouth Health Centre with severe visual disturbances. The receptionist told him he should have stayed at home, phoned the surgery and the duty doctor would call him back. As he was at the surgery he could wait and be seen after the emergencies. They then asked if he was sure he didn't have an eyelash in his eye.
