These pages are intended to inform General Practitioner's who work in Wales about the services available for their patients through the Welsh Eye Care Initiative (WECI).
The Welsh Eyecare Initiative (WECI) is unique to Wales: Within the WECI there are 3 types of eye examinations/ assessment that are available, depending on the patient:
1. A Primary Eyecare Acute Referral Scheme (PEARS) eye examination - for any patient with an acute eye problem.
2. An Eye Health Examination - an extended eye examination for selected groups of patients.
3. A Low Vision Assessment- for any patient who has sight loss that cannot be ameliorated by glasses, contact lenses or medical treatment.
