The Sight-Line is a help/advice line for blind and partially sighted people, their families and/or carers, as well as health and other professional staff. It can give information about equipment and Herts Vision Loss services as well as signpost callers to other sources of information and help.
The Sight Line operates from 10.00 to 1.00 Monday to Thursday and the number is 01707 324680.
We service Information Points including upkeep of information trolleys, through staff and volunteers, in eye clinics in the county (Lister, QE2, St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Hertford County and Watford). We also provide information to the Harlow, Barnet and Potters Bar (Moorfields satellite) hospitals. The purpose of the service is to assist patients in eye clinics with support and information and to help eye clinic staff with activities.
Sight Information Points
These are held at various locations once every month to give:
- Support services to people with low vision
- Equipment to assist with daily living
- Information on benefits and concessions
- Information on social and educational opportunities
