Exploring Eye Care
Your guide to looking after your eyes

Eye care doesn’t start and end with a sight test.

For us, eye care is the culmination of the services we provide to care for the eyes of your residents.

Whilst a regular sight test is extremely important, it’s also about how we can help you facilitate person-centred eye care to help your residents to see better and live better every day.

We developed innovative care planning tools to assist you in making eye care part of daily care provision.

Our Lifestyle Questionnaire is a bespoke document focussed on an individual’s daily routine and favourite activities to determine their daily eye care requirements.

This ensures that any eye care recommendation is appropriate and necessary to help them see better and live better as they previously have done.

It’s an essential document to achieve person-centred care as it collects relevant information to inform subsequent care.

This information is then used to generate a succinct summary of the individual’s daily visual needs in the form of our Lifestyle Passport, which is perfect for their care plan.

Our Lifestyle Passport signposts a person’s level of vision with and without their glasses, details of the correct eyewear for activities they enjoy and information about any eye conditions they may have.

Care givers can adapt care accordingly to ensure that an individual’s eye care needs are met, enabling them to see better and live better.

Our care planning documents can help to facilitate appropriate and correct person-centred eye care when used properly.

For someone living with some form of vision loss, proactive eye care is the difference between being able to engage with the world around them and isolation, depression and being at risk of falling.

We also provide extra services such as staff training and dementia signage because we’re dedicated to ensuring that eye care doesn’t start and end with a sight test – it’s about helping our partners to facilitate eye care on a daily basis.

Vision loss can make it difficult for a person to safely navigate around their own home and researched signage can ease disorientation.

Awareness and understanding of the significance of vision loss is key to making eye care an important part of daily care, similar to the consideration given to our general health.
