RNIB info

I've contacted the RNIB to ask they correct their website information.

Can I get help with the cost of lens care products? If your contact lenses are clinically necessary, your hospital is responsible for providing you with cleaning and sterilising solutions.You should be able to get these on NHS prescription.

This is not accurate - “One month’s solutions can be supplied on prescription at each scheduled contact lens clinic appointment. The prescription is only valid at Moorfields' pharmacy. Each item incurs the standard NHS prescription charge
Patients are able to purchase additional supplies from Moorfields’ pharmacy
Unfortunately, solutions may not be prescribed outside appointments and will not be posted
your GP can prescribe eye medication, but is prohibited from prescribing contact lens solutions”
