St Woolos Hospital
If you have any concerns at all about your eyes, see a High Street optometrist (also known as an optician) straight away. They will tell you if you are eligible for a free eye health examination.
Some eye diseases can lead to blindness or some loss of vision, but if detected early enough, your eyesight can often be saved.
An eye health examination is just that – an examination of the health of your eyes.
The optometrist will carefully examine your eyes to see if anything is wrong
If the optometrist decides you need an eye health examination, it won’t cost you anything.
You can find an optometrist in most High Streets in Wales. If you have a sight problem, you can go to your existing optometrist (if you have one) or just phone or walk into any practice that is convenient for you to get to.
Please see http://www.eyecare.wales.nhs.uk for more information.
