The Ophthalmic Team would appreciate any feedback from our users on the new factsheet tool or on the report itself. Please direct any comments to: .


  • 5.32 million sight tests were paid for by Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) in England between April to September 2006. This was 3.1 per cent more than the total for October 2005 to March 2006 (5.16 million) according to latest figures published today.
  • 337 thousand sight tests were paid for by Local Health Boards (LHBs) in Wales in the period April to September 2006. This represents an increase of 1.0 per cent compared to the period October 2005 to March 2006 (334 thousand).
  • A new factsheet tool is also available, which provides information from the tables in the report at the required PCT/LHB or SHA level.
