Specialist Orthoptists from the Bury Community Eye Service provide magnifiers/aids to help with problems as a result of sight loss, when sight cannot be improved by medical treatment or ordinary spectacles. Magnifiers can be used to improve reading and other daily living skill difficulties. The magnifiers will be loaned to the client and advice will be given on the best way to use the aids.

This is a free service providing you are registered with a Bury GP. We will accept self referral to this service. Clinics are held at Townside PCC, Radcliffe PCC and Tottington Health Centre. 

AS WE ALL TRY TO STOP THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) WE ARE NOT CARRYING OUT ROUTINE CLINICS. IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS WITH YOUR MAGNIFIERS PLEASE CALL 0300 323 3316.

THE BURY SOCIETY FOR BLIND AND PARTIALLY SIGHTED PEOPLE ARE OFFERING ADVICE AND SUPPORT OVER THE PHONE AND TELEPHONE BEFRIENDING ON 0161 763 7014.
