Thomson (optometrist) assessing Elaine for a Low Vision Aid
When glasses no longer help you to see and read what you want to,
a Low Vision Aid may be able to help. At MertonVision we aim to
maximise the vision that you have, using a range of Low Vision Aids
e.g. magnifiers, telescopes etc
We hold a Low Vision Aid assessment session on the first Tuesday
of the month. A Rehabilitation Officer trained in Low Vision will
talk with you to identify what help you need. A specially
trained and qualified Optician will measure your vision and how
well you see contrast (faintness). Using this information
we will aim to maximise your vision using an Low Vision Aid.
We will teach you how to use the Low Vision Aid and how to make
the most of your vision.
To arrange an Low Vision
Aid assessment contact us at MertonVision to schedule an appointment.
This service is free to you (funded by NHS) and any Low Vision Aids
that are issued are on a permanent loan basis for as long as they
are useful to you.
If you or anyone you know
would like to benefit from this service please contact us. 020
