We want to minimise avoidable sight loss for the people of Gloucestershire.

If you’re worried about your eyes, speak to your optician.

Many high street opticians can assess and treat a number of conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts, as well as some other minor eye conditions.

Children who have problems identified during school vision screening (in Reception year) may also be referred to a high street optician.

Not only is this more convenient for patients, reducing the need to attend appointments at the hospital, but those who need more complex support can be seen at the hospital by the Ophthalmology team more quickly.
