What is low vision?

Low vision is when you find it hard to see clearly, even after an eye test or when wearing spectacles or contact lenses, and where this loss of vision causes disruption to daily activities.

The services we offer as part of our Low Vision Clinic are:

  • A full low vision assessment with an experienced Optometrist
  • A helpful discussion to make the most of your vision
  • How to use any aids
  • Handy hints and tips for keeping social and independent
  • Help to arrange transport to and from Low Vision Clinic
  • Referrals to the service (s) you need, including visits for assistance with lighting, mobility, equipment, etc.
  • Information on other services local to you
