I am aged over 40 and one of my parents has been diagnosed with glaucoma. I understand this means I am entitled to a free NHS sight test. How do I go about obtaining any certificate or form that you would need for this purpose?

You don't have to! When you go for the eye test tell the receptionist that you have a close relative with glaucoma, and you will be asked to sign an NHS sight test form declaring that fact.
