Default Emergency Eye Check

Some help needed here please.
My husband has been told by an Optician here that he should get an urgent check on his eyes at a Hospital.
We have insurance so can go to a private Hospital if necessary.
Does anyone know if we can just turn up at the Muro hospital in Alcudia, which is closest?
Alternatively is Inca Hospital better? Again do we just turn up?
We need specialist eye testing equipment & an English speaking Doctor.

Thanking you

Update
It seems we have to go to Inca as the facilities he needs are not available in Muro.
We are going to get a taxi there.
Hopefully all will be well.
Sorry to waste anyone’s time reading this post.

Hope all O. K.
I would suggest that you advise your insurance company in case you require their assistance in the future. Failure to advise them of any new ailment could effect your cover.

Thank you for your caring messages.
All the medical staff we saw at Inca were kind & efficient.
An age related eye condition was diagnosed.
It has been extremely reassuring that quick & excellent medical assistance is available here.
