Working for People with Sight Loss

Make a referral

 

We are happy to take referrals from anyone who is having significant challenges with their vision that cannot be improved with conventional correction glasses or medical treatment.

Our online referral process provides a quick and easy way for you to request services, either for yourself, a family member, or a patient. We contact all new referrals to conduct an assessment.

Each assessment completed by our trained staff will lead to the development of an individualised plan of support and advice based on the referral’s needs.

We accept referrals from:

  • Self-referral
  • Refer a relative or friend
  • Professional referral e.g. clinicians such as Ophthalmologists and Optometrists.
