At Allport Opticians we are pleased to be able to offer the Welsh Eye Health Examination for patients who may be at greater risk of eyes disease and for patients who experience sudden eye problems.
Mr Allport is an accredited Optometrist who is also able to offer Low Vision Assessments through the Low Vision Service Wales.
Unfortunately in some cases spectacles alone are unable to provide enough help and extra help from a magnifying aid is required. The Low Vision Service Wales is able to supply a variety of magnifiers from simple hand magnifiers through to sophisticated electronic magnifiers with both the assessment and any required aids being funded by the Welsh Government.
