Low Vision Clinic
Unfortunately for some patients, spectacles do not improve vision sufficiently enough for everyday tasks. In these instances low vision aids are used to maximise the patients remaining vision, very often advice upon the correct use of lighting makes a significant difference.
The low vision clinic runs separately from the routine eye examination, initial appointments take approximately half an hour, follow on appointments are much quicker. The low vision clinic deals with the use of magnifying aids and telescopes to maximise reduced vision, also general practical aids and advice to enhance everyday life. Opticare Opticians prides itself in the service offered to the often vulnerable visually impaired patient.
