Special School Eye Care Service


NHS England, who oversee the NHS, have committed to transforming eye care and vision for children and young people in special schools in England by delivering a free, eye examination on the school premises which will include the supply and fitting of 2 pairs of glasses for every child who needs them.  Please watch this short service information film.

Research has shown that children with a learning disability and/or autism are 28x more likely to experience challenges with sight and eye health.  

Despite this greater need, most children have to attend a hospital eye department for routine services and over 40% have no history of eye care provision.

The service will be coming to Woodfield to check pupils.

Please review the information NHS Special School Eye Care Service - School Service Information document below for full details.

These documents have been sent home with all pupils on Friday 25th February. If you need a copy, download and print or if you have any questions, please contact the office.
