Glaucoma & Diabetic Patients and Relatives Of Glaucoma Sufferers
(Evidence of Eligibility)
Glaucoma & Diabetic related categories -
People with Diabetes, Glaucoma or people medically at risk from Glaucoma
If a person in this category has been for a sight test to the practice before, then no evidence is required in order to claim a free sight test. Regular sight tests for people in this category are extremely important.
The NHS advises that people visiting the practice for the first time for a test, should supply one of the following -
Diabetic Patients Should try to provide one of the following -
Aged 40 or over and the parent / brother / sister / child of a glaucoma sufferer
For patients who are related to a Glaucoma sufferer and have come to the practice for the first time should bring with them a confirmation from their GP, or consultant, or a relevant appointment card.
At present there is no documentation available to prove that a patient is a close relative of a glaucoma sufferer.
If you fall in this group, we strongly recommend Annual Sight Test - as the health of your eyes may depend on it.
