I have lost my Certificate of Vision Impairment (CVI), how do I get a replacement?

If you live in England or Wales and have lost your CVI (Certificate of Vision Impairment) and need a replacement, contact the Ophthalmology department where your eye specialist first certified your sight loss. They should hold your original CVI and be able to give you a copy of it. Your local authority sensory department and GP may also have copies.

If you live in Scotland you will have a Confirmation of Registration, instead of a certificate. You can request a copy of your registration document from social care.

If you live in Northern Ireland, you can request a copy of your certificate from your Ophthalmologist or local authority.
