I heard that if any member of your family has glaucoma, then you get a free eye test is that correct? I am 28 and my dad has Glaucoma, diabetes runs in the family and my mother had to have eye laser treatment due to problems.
I have already had an eye test a year ago but my vision has worsened and is a bit blurred. Can't afford to keep paying annually for eye tests, etc.
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.
You are only allowed a free eye test through the NHS if you have a close relative (mother, father, sister, brother) with glaucoma and you are over 40 years old. With your family history however and the fact that you are finding your vision blurred, I would keep up with regular tests if at all possible.
