Welsh Eye Health Examination Wales (WEHEW)

Definition: The aim of the WEHEW is to detect those patients at increased risk of eye disease and those patients who would find losing their sight particularly difficult. Patients in Wales were entitled to a free at the point of access WEHEW eye examination from an accredited optometrist if they fulfilled specific criteria. This service was available from 2003-2012 but has been superseded by the EHEW.
