§ 20. Dr. Ladyman
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many eye tests have been carried out on people aged over 65 years since April. 
§ Mr. Hutton
We estimate that, since April, some 50,000 more people have been receiving National Health Service sight tests each week following our decision to extend eligibility for NHS tests to everyone aged 60 or over. Most of these patients will have been aged over 65.
