Eye Test In Germany


Information regarding eye tests in Germany.

Adults and children aged 16 or over who require routine eye tests:
Most low risk patients should have their eyes tested every two years (unless they are a child who wears glasses or fall into one of the groups outlined above, or are elderly (over the age of 70)). If a patient is considered at low risk, the LLP will refund eye test charges incurred and undertaken every two years via Host Nation provision. If a patient is at higher risk, but still considered suitable for Host Nation testing, the LLP will refund the cost of more frequent eye testing. The maximum refund provided will be in line with UK costs - i.e. up to a maximum of £30 or €35.

A list of the available opticians in Germany providing this service is held in the HIVE
