ACUTE / EMERGENCY EYE CARE
Clare is accredited under the Wales Eye Care / Eye Health Examination Wales Scheme to carry out more specialised eye health examinations where required.
If you live in Wales and have a problem with your eyes or your vision which occurred suddenly or if you have been advised to have an eye examination by another health professional you may be entitled to a fully funded eye health examination under the scheme.
If you are experiencing any type of eye or vision problem, it’s best not to delay in seeking advice. Contact us, we will advise if you need to come in for an eye examination, and whether you should come in urgently or on a routine basis.⠀
LOW VISION ASSESSMENTS
As an accredited Low Vision practitioner, Clare is also able to offer Low Vision Assessments as part of the Wales Low Vision Service. So if you already have low vision, a vision impairment or are registered as either sight impaired or severely sight impaired, Clare can help you make the best use of the sight you have.
The assessment is designed for you to discuss your eyesight condition and the difficulties this may present in your day to day life.
Clare can then help you to try out a number of different low vision aids specific to your requirements such as handheld or stand magnifiers, typoscopes, task lights, electronic magnifiers, shields and/or reading stands etc. You can then decide if any of them may help you and Clare can show you how to use them to best effect.
These will then be ordered free of charge for you to take home on loan for as long as you may need them.⠀
