About us

The Lions Low Vision Clinic is a unit within the Royal Hobart Hospital Eye Clinic, specialising in helping people with vision loss make the best use of their remaining sight.

We aim to help you make the best possible use of your remaining vision, through the use of magnifiers, extra strong glasses, strong lighting and other aids and devices. We carry a wide range of advanced magnifiers, both traditional and electronic, which are available for trial at home. If thought to be useful, we can refer you on to Visibility Tasmania to have a home visit arranged. A home visit can advise on lighting and safety around the home, provide assistance with orientation and mobility training, and help with other support services for the visually impaired.
