HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 cc144-5W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Minister of Health whether, since in cases of glaucoma sight may be saved by early diagnosis, he will take steps to increase eyesight testing by the process known as tonometry.

Mr. K. Robinson

The value of tonometry as a means of detecting chronic glaucoma at an early stage is at present under review by my Standing Medical Advisory Committee, and I am awaiting their advice.
