  • CVIs provide data for public health preventable sight loss indicator
  • The Certifications Office used to be based at Empire House, 133-144 City Road, London EC1V 2QN. In August 2007 office has moved to main building of the Moorfields Eye Hospital. The CVI form (CVI 2007) was updated with new address, however several eye clinics and ophthalmologists use the older versions of the CVI (2003, 2005) which has the incorrect address.
  • Since 2007 the Royal Mail has provided a safeguard automatic redirection which ensures that confidential information does not reach non-NHS premises. Automatic redirection of mail from old address runs out on 5th March 2014 and there is no scope for further extension.

The most recent edition of the CVI form with correct address on it can be downloaded from ecvi.moorfields.nhs.uk/resouces.aspx
