Sometimes even with our best efforts, we are unable to provide conventional spectacles to help your vision. Here at the Village Optician Ltd, our staff are qualified in techniques to help make the most of what residual vision you may have.

Magnifying devices can be provided by the National Health Service through the hospital or local health clinic usually on a loan basis.

If however, you wish to purchase a device privately we have a large selection of magnifying devices from simple magnifiers to magnifiers with illumination systems. We also supply the ‘Bierley mouse’ which can be used with your PC or TV to enlarge reading material and put the image on your preferred monitor. Please feel free to ask about any of these devices.
