NHS Sight Test Protocol

DSCF1055The NHS sight test protocol simply defines what you should expect from your NHS sight test. This protects the patient by ensuring that an NHS eye examination will attain a minimum standard regardless of where it is carried out. It also protects the optometrist by clarifying where an NHS eye examination ends and where either referral to a medical practitioner or additional services provided by the optometrist would be appropriate. To maintain equity with our NHS patients, this protocol will also form the basis of our private eye examination.
