Prior to the 2017-18 release, this publication was released with additional breakdowns in the data. Any breakdowns regarding eligibility (over 60, JSA, etc.) have been removed due to issues with the accuracy, which made these figures potentially misleading. Any breakdowns to do with geographical area have also been removed as it was not possible to accurately assign sight tests to each area, which made these figures misleading.
