Additional Services

Bargoed Sight Centre is able to offer many additional services in addition to sight tests and eye examinations.

Low Vision Service Wales

A range of magnifying glasses and specialised optical aids are available free of charge on loan through  the Low Vision Service Wales. Anyone living in Wales who is not able to get normal sight with spectacles or contact lenses is likely to qualify for this service, especially if registered as Sight Impaired or Severely Sight Impaired. Many conditions including Age Related Macular Degeneration and Cataracts make it difficult or impossible to read without more help and referral can be made to other agencies if needed.

This is a way of recording a very detailed image of your retina to assess and monitor your eye health.

ChromaGen Lenses

ChromaGen is a lens system designed to correct Colour Vision Defects, Dyslexia and Migraine attacks. They can be dispensed either as spectacle lenses or contact lenses
