1) Be aware

 

2) Eye tests

 

3) Glasses

  • Simply wearing the correct glasses can often make a huge difference to how well someone can see

  • Make sure that someone’s glasses are comfortable and fit well, so they are more likely to wear them 

  • There are glasses frames for different face shapes and ones that are flexible or harder to break

  • You can take your glasses voucher to any opticians so it’s a good idea to shop around for the right glasses

  • Glasses don’t instantly make the world clearer, the brain has to learn to see differently so be patient and keep trying
