Small Glasses Supplement Guidance updated

ABDO is pleased to announce that the guidance surrounding the use of the Small Glasses Supplement (SGS) has been updated.

Previously, it was not permitted to use the SGS for specialist frames. The revised guidance now permits this, so long as the reason for their use is clinical and not patient choice.

The reason for the use of such frames must be recorded in the patient’s records. The current SGS criteria of boxed centres of 55mm or less must also apply.

The new guidance can be accessed on the NHS England website here.
