Sheffield Local Optometric Committee

Contact Applanation Tonometry Service (CATS)

Sheffield LOC has worked closely with NHS Sheffield to develop a new scheme with the aim of reducing the number of false positive referrals for raised IOP. The scheme provides appropriate funding for optometrists to undertake contact applanation tonometry in certain circumstances. The scheme is open to all optometrists in Sheffield without the need for further training.

Optometrists participating in this scheme should now be reporting activity and making claims for payment using the online reporting system. Further details can be obtained from Lynda Liddament at NHS Sheffield who should be contacted to obtain passwords for online reporting
