LOW VISION SERVICE WALES
This service is available to anyone who are unable to see as well as most people, even when they are wearing glasses or contact lenses. There are many eye conditions such as macular degeneration that can cause you to have vision problems.
We can offer you a free, hour long low vision assessment within a few days. At the appointment, you will be able to discuss your eye condition and any day to day difficulties you may be having with your optometrist.
After determining what you most need help with, you will be able to try a range of low vision aids to see what would be useful. These low vision aids include handheld or stand magnifiers, typoscopes, task lights, electronic magnifiers, shields and/or reading stands.
If you and the optometrist find any aids that will be helpful to you, they will then be ordered for you free of charge.
We also have links with other local agencies who may be able to provide more assistance on day to day living.
