Specsavers in Wellington is committed to providing the best quality eyecare that is accessible for all customers. The opticians advanced services now include low vision aids to provide support to those who struggle with low vision conditions.
Low vision is often caused by existing eye diseases such as macular degeneration or cataracts. For people who are affected, their visual acuity is usually very low and cannot be corrected or improved with regular prescription specs.
There are almost two million people in the UK who are living with low vision.
Today’s technology means that people who are suffering with reduced vison can be helped with low vision aids. The devices come in several forms including stand and hand-held magnifiers, strong magnifying reading glasses, clip-on loupes and small telescopes.
At the Wellington opticians, choosing a low vision aid is an important decision and the team are on hand to help. Many factors can influence which low vision aid will be the most suitable to the customer’s lifestyle, and these will be taken into account and assessed at Specsavers.

‘For many people, hearing that their eyesight cannot be helped with regular glasses is daunting news. We aim to change that and we are proud to be the opticians who provide a safe and supportive solution for people struggling with low vision.’
