Low Vision Centre


Of all diabilities, low vision or partial sight is perhaps the most misunderstood. People tend to think of vision in terms of "all or nothing" - either you are fully sighted or totally blind with no inbetrween. In fact, very few people are totally blind. Low vision implies that there is some form of vision remaining and the challenge at our Low Vision Centre is to identify the those remaining areas of vision  and make them function more efficiently. Various mangement options are offered from routine spectacle correction to contrast and lighting enhancement and the numerous forms of magnification.

Coping with low vision can be stressful but given the appropriate information, support, training and equipment, people with lowvison can and do lead fulfilling independent lives.
