Scottish eye exams up by 6%

Posted on 03rd August 2012

There were 100,000 more eye exams carried out in Scotland in 2011-12 compared to the year before.

The increase from 1.8million to 1.9million exams is positive for Scotland, where other regions are seeing static or declining numbers of patients attending for eye exams. This comes hot on the heels of a study demonstrating that many people think an eye exam is all about glasses.

Debbie McGill, operations manager for Optometry Scotland commented “The recent figures demonstrate an increase in awareness of eye health care and the importance of regular checks.  Optometry Scotland is working hard to link eye care and current public health initiatives to help increase awareness even more in the future.”
