The Welsh Eye Care Initiative
The Eye Health Examination Wales is a Welsh Assembly funded initiative that gives the general public access to more in depth eye assessments.
This is available to the following groups:
- Uniocular patients i.e. patients who would be significantly handicapped if they lost vision in their better eye.
- Patients who are profoundly deaf.
- Patients with retinitis pigmentosa, or siblings of patients with inherited eye disease.
- Patients of Black African, Black Caribbean, Indian, Pakistani or Bangladeshi origin.
- Patients with a family history of glaucoma.
- Any patient presenting with acute symptoms requiring attention.
- Patients who are registered blind or partially-sighted.
- The patient can self-refer or may be referred by their general practitioner. They may also be referred to us under the PEARS scheme.
