Re: When do contacts become an option?

I have no useful vision in right eye and 6/18 in left eye corrected with glasses. I was just wondering as I got new glasses about 4 weeks ago and did notice a very slight improvement but I suspect my prescription has changed already as I am struggling a bit again. Thanks for your input.

Thanks Andrew and Lynn, I have the eye clinic again at the start of June. I will ask, see what they say, though it is not actually the Consultant I am meeting with this time but someone about visual aids. Thank-you for the information.
