Low Vision Assessment (LVA)

Where good vision cannot be achieved with spectacles or contact lenses, patients can be assessed in our low vision clinic.

During a low vision assessment, one of our optometrists will perform an examination to identify any refractive errors (problems with focusing) and demonstrate low vision devices such as specialist spectacles, magnifiers or telescopes that could help you see better.

Electronic magnifiers are also available for demonstration, and the optometrist will also talk to you about optimal lighting and other methods to make the most of your remaining vision.


How do I get an appointment with this service?

Your GP or ophthalmologist (hospital eye doctor) will arrange an appointment for you with the low vision clinic if your vision falls below a certain level and cannot be sufficiently improved by spectacles or contact lenses.
