I attended the Glaucoma Clinic at Leicester General Hospital on 23 September for an annual check.
The check was not very thorough.
The peripheral vision check for one eye was unsatisfactory and was not repeated in order to improve the results.
I mentioned a problem with that particular eye (loss of clear vision in one part of the field) and was told it was due to the varifocal prescription in my spectacles, even though there was no problem with the other eye.
Fortunately, I went back to my optician in Leicester and had a repeat test carried out which has identified a potential problem that will be referred to the hospital - hopefully the LRI.
Finally I was asked to carry out a distance vision check after having had eye drops.
