Low Vision Aids

If you have visual impairment that cannot be corrected with conventional methods such as spectacles, contact lenses or surgery, there are still ways that we can help you make the most of the sight you do have.

We understand the day-to-day challenges caused by low vision, and our specialist optometrists are committed to helping you towards a solution that maximises your remaining vision. With an extensive range of aids on offer from leading manufacturers – including Ocutech, Eschenbach, Coil, Schweizer, Noir, Mediview – we can provide you with specialist spectacles, magnifiers, telescopes and electronic visual enhancing equipment to help improve your quality of life.

Enhance your vision with telescopic technology

We are proud to be a specialised centre for BiOptic Telescopes, which is an innovative spectacle-mounted telescope system. Enabling magnifications of up to 6x, these special glasses help patients see distances they never thought they would be able to again.

From bus numbers and train timetables to faces and televisions, the award-winning Ocutech VES- AutoFocus provides comfortable natural magnified vision at both long and short distances, and is the world’s only self-focusing bioptic telescope. With expertise and extensive training in low vision, our optometrists are specialists in assessing and fitting these bioptic systems.

By assessing your needs and determining the best device for your requirements, we can help you find a low vision aid that works for you and enhances your quality of life.

and friendly – I would highly recommend them.'

I finally feel that after 30 years of struggling with various lenses,
my keratoconus is finally, at long last, a problem solved.’

‘The quality of care and advice I have received has been first class and I would
have no hesitation in recommending the practice.’

‘From the moment I stepped into the shop I was given first class service,
made to feel valued and had the most thorough eye test I’ve had to date.
Dipesh provided valuable explanations and information as he carried out the test,
and I purchased a pair of Lindberg glasses, with which I am very pleased.’

‘Finding a good opticians who you can trust and who understands your eye needs isn’t easy,
and I would recommend them to anyone – particularly those with keratoconus.’

‘I have been wearing glasses for over 15 years and have been to many opticians in the past,
but Parker & Hammond have by far been the best. Their staff are excellent and they give
me honest, sound advice which I have always trusted. The eye test is very thorough
and the optometrists do their best to make you feel relaxed and comfortable.’

give useful advice and – unlike other places I’ve been to in the past – the costs are fully explained.’

‘The service I receive whenever I come into this shop is outstanding.
I would and do recommend to all who will listen!’

‘Although the road to keratoconus solutions is sometimes trying, you know you have
a specialist here who will truly work tirelessly to find one.’

‘My family have been customers here for many years, brought back every time by impeccable
customer service, attention and professionalism. All staff are welcoming and have a full
understanding of the products, with information given throughout the spectacle purchase.’

‘For the past ten years Parker & Hammond have been my opticians of choice, from the warmth and efficiency met with at reception
to the unstinting care and detail at the eye test stage. In assistance with frame choice and dedication to guaranteeing comfort with your spectacles,
Parker & Hammond have proved themselves to be the best I have encountered. Add that to superb aftercare and you have the recipe for satisfaction
and perfect confidence that your eyecare could not have been in better hands. I have recommended them in the past and will continue to do so – wholeheartedly.’
