Glaucoma Repeat Measure Scheme

This scheme is designed to enable accredited optometrists to repeat Intra-Ocular pressure (IOP) using Goldmann or Perkins applanation tonometry on patients with raised IOP of 22 mmHg or higher.

Patients being seen on this scheme must be registered with a Wolverhampton GP.

This scheme is designed for accredited practitioners to repeat tests on their own patients.  

However, if appropriate, an accredited practitioner can repeat tests on a patient seen by a non-accredited colleague within the same practice, for example a locum working in the practice.   Otherwise, non-accredited practitioners should continue to refer their patients in the usual way.
