Low Vision Assessments

Low Vision Assessment: Low vision is a term used to describe a sight problem that cannot be corrected by glasses, contact lenses or medical treatment and may cause people, including children and young people, some difficulties in everyday activities.

Some people with low vision may require a device to help them with certain tasks such as reading print, seeing things in the distance like bus numbers or watching a football match. In order to determine if a patient could benefit from using one or more low vision aids, they can have a low vision assessment.  As part of the Welsh Low Vision Scheme there are now over a hundred optometrists and dispensing opticians across Wales who are qualified to provide low vision assessments in their practices. The assessment and any low-tech low vision aids that are prescribed will be supplied free of charge.

We are registered to perform these assessments at all of our practices.
