People with Low Vision
If you find it hard to see things clearly, even after you've had your eyes tested and are wearing the right glasses or contact lenses, you may have low vision. You may have been told that there is nothing that can be done to improve the medical condition of your eyes. However, people with low vision have useful sight that they can use in their daily lives. There may be a lot that you can do to improve the way you use the sight that you do have.
In Wales, people who have low vision can have an assessment of their vision by an accredited high street optometrist or dispensing optician. Low vision can often be helped by a range of vision aids and appliances which are available under the Welsh Low Vision Service.
