coolSpread the word about why regular tests of sight are important and change the following :-

Your Community Eye Care Team who provide sight tests can be found on any High Street:

  • offering you and your family quality, professional eye-care
  • ensuring whether at work, rest or play you can get the most from life by seeing the best you can
  • for many people there comes a time when spectacles, contact lenses or medical interventions can no longer improve failing vision but your community eye care professionals can still help.

Historically this pretty little flower was a remedy for poor eyesight but now you will be referred to a hospital based ophthalmologist. If medicine and the NHS can't restore full-vision a Vision Impairment support worker from your LB/SC can give support and advice on visual aids (LVA's), financal benefits, and other ways to contine to live independantly.
