Lighting and Magnification Assessment
Task lighting directs light where it is needed most for detailed activities. Even with good general light levels in a room, the amount of light available may not be adequate for close up tasks. During your appointment we will show you how to make the best use of lighting and the correct way to use magnification.
We can only supply certain pieces of equipment such as magnifiers after a consultation. This is to ensure that the product we supply is the right item for your current condition. We can also make you aware of the latest Low Vision Aids and innovations.
Magnification solutions come in a variety of forms to suit your needs. Before buying a magnifier you need to know what magnification strength you require and what the reading task is. We work with you to ensure that you have the best magnifier for the task you wish to perform.
Skills for Seeing
If you experience central vision loss we can teach you new skills to make better use of your remaining peripheral vision. Practising these skills can help you with daily activities like reading, watching television, hobbies, personal care and getting out and about.
