Low Vision

Low vision is a service we offer at Richard Hughes Opticians, it is a specialised clinic for patients who have less than normal vision with the most accurate conventional prescription available. It can be a result of either congenital or acquired factors.

Such as:
•    Cataracts
•    Glaucoma
•    Uveitis
•    Macular Degeneration (ARMD)
•    Corneal opacity
•    Trachoma
•    Diabetic Retinopathy
•    Myopia magna
•    Stargardt’s disease
•    Albinism
•    Retinitis Pigmentosa

It is important that all patients have a full eye examination to establish a careful baseline refraction and prescription of both normal and low vision glasses and optical aids, this is to establish visual functioning of a compromised visual system effectively.

The vast majority of patients with low vision can be helped to function at a higher level with the use of  low vision devices, we recommend the appropriate low vision devices and counsel patients on how to deal with their reduced vision in general.
