Sight Test Survey 2014

Thank you to all the optometrists, who completed and returned the 2014 Sight Test and Ophthalmic Public Health Survey.

The return rate for the 2014 Northern Ireland Sight Test and Ophthalmic Public Health Survey was approximately 35%. The Survey Report can be accessed at the following link http://www.dhsspsni.gov.uk/ni-sts-2014.pdf  and you are encouraged to read it as it provides valuable  information and context to the ongoing work within Northern Ireland. ONI are working with the Health and Social Care Board, Public Health Agency and wider stakeholders to develop integrated eyecare pathways supported by a public health framework which provides the public with the necessary information on eye health. It is anticipated that the next Survey will take place in 2017 and you are encourage to contribute and participate.
