Wales Low Vision Service change of phone number

If you already have a vision impairment or low vision, an optometrist can help you make the best use of the sight you have.

They start by carrying out a low vision assessment. This assessment could, for instance, show that magnifiers or better lighting at home would help you. They can also advise you about other people and organisations who may be able to help you with transport, benefits or simple things to make life easier around the house. Certain magnifiers and low vision aids (LVAs) are provided by the Wales General Ophthalmic Service for Low Vision and paid for by the Welsh Government, so they won’t cost you a penny.
