What to expect at Low Vision Clinic

Your doctor may refer you for vision rehabilitation if you have low vision. ​In SNEC, our optometrists will provide a comprehensive low vision evaluation which includes the following:

  • Refraction (to ensure that spectacle prescription is up to date)

  • Contrast sensitivity test

  • Near vision test

  • Prescribing optical aids and glasses

  • Recommend and demonstrate use of suitable optical aids and accessibility functions on AT devices

  • Counselling on adaptive strategies to cope with eye condition

  • Further referral to other rehabilitation services as required. E.g. orientation and mobility training, accessibility and AT devices training, activities of daily living training, occupational therapy service.
