Because of changes that can occur in the eye, it is not always possible to achieve the level of vision you are used to with conventional spectacles.

Welsh Low Vision Service

Four of our Optometrists including myself have been accredited practitioners under the ‘Welsh Low Vision Scheme’ for many years now. As part of this Welsh Assembly funded scheme, we offer free Low Vision Assessments to the visually impaired and appropriate magnifying aids, telescopes, glare shields and electronic aids on free loan. If needed we will use our local knowledge to refer you to other services in our area.

If you wish to be assessed under this scheme, you can either book an appointment yourself or ask your Ophthalmologist, Doctor, Optometrist or Social Worker to refer you to us.
