Low Vision Clinic

We offer free Low Vision assessments throughout Cornwall for people with eye conditions that cannot be improved with prescription glasses or surgery.

We will help you discover which low vision aids would be the most beneficial for you to take away on a free long term loan, from hand held or stand magnifiers to solar shields and MaxTV glasses.

To book your free assessment you will need a referral from your optician or eye hospital consultant – we can’t book your appointment without one. There are a number of ways to get referred:

  • Visit your optician for a sight test and request a referral.
  • Alternatively, if you have been to see your optician in the last 12 months, you can simply give them a call and request to be referred.
  • If you are a patient at the eye hospital, your consultant can refer you at your next appointment or you may be able to request this over the phone.

To find out more contact Tara on 01872 261110.
