Low vision aids (or magnifiers) can be provided to you at no cost at a low vision clinic after an assessment.
Visit the Low Vision Clinics page to find the details of your nearest one.
Your GP or hospital eye clinic can arrange an appointment. You may have to wait for this appointment but the clinic will talk over your needs, let you try some magnifiers and supply one to you on the day at no cost.
You can buy low vision aids from the following suppliers but some of them can be expensive and it is often hard to know which one will be best for you without an assessment.
