Sometimes patients are referred to the Hospital Eye Service for raised eye pressure. Some of these patients will be diagnosed with Glaucoma but many others are diagnosed as suffering from Ocular Hyper-Tension (OHT) and are often monitored by the hospital every year. There is now a community monitoring programme which allows many of these patients to be monitored by their optometrist.
If you are attending Leighton Hospital or Victoria Infirmary Northwich for pressure monitoring, but are not on any treatment for the pressure, you may be eligible for community monitoring. Please ask one of our optometrists for more information.
