Low Vision Aids (LVAs)

If your child has been advised by an Ophthalmologist or Optometrist that their vision is not correctable

fully with glasses there may be an option to try alternative ways to help them visually.

Low Vision Aids or LVA's are available to anyone with a visual impairment.

They can help magnify text or objects by:

  •  enlarging print for near tasks
  • help focus objects in the distance


Magnifiers can be used either on their own or as small telescopes or sometimes can

be supplied as part of spectacles themselves.
