LOW VISION ASSESSMENT
This is a free service for people who have difficulty with their vision that cannot be corrected with glasses. It comprises a comprehensive vision assessment with emphasis on how patients are managing with daily tasks. We are able to prescribe a wide range of visual aids, including magnifying glasses, free of charge. Patients do not need to be registered Sight Impaired (blind) to access the service and do not need to be referred by their doctor. We have close links with social services through the low vision scheme and so can arrange other types of help and care for patients if necessary. If you feel that you, or someone you know, needs a low vision assessment please contact your nearest branch and ask for a Low Vision Assessment.
