  • you're aged 60 or over
  • you're registered as partially sighted (sight impaired) or blind (severely sight impaired)
  • you've been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma
  • you're 40 or over and your mother, father, brother, sister, son or daughter has been diagnosed with glaucoma
  • you've been advised by an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) that you're at risk of glaucoma
  • you're a prisoner on leave from prison
