Seeing Beyond Disability

At Simon Berry Optometrists we pride ourselves in providing the best service to all. One way of doing this is by making reasonable adjustments to the way we work and tailoring our service to meet the needs of our patients.

We can also offer a more bespoke service to those with disabilities or who may require additional assistance with their eye test. If you are a person with a disability and would like to book an eye test, you may find it helpful to download our ‘Telling the optometrist’ form (below). This is a document produced by the charity SeeAbility.
Before attending your eye test please send us the completed form and this will help us to understand your needs to provide you with the best possible service we can.

Our premises are wheelchair user friendly with nearby street parking and easy access to our testing rooms.

childWe also offer specialist frames for children with Downs Syndrome.
Erin’s World™ frames are specially designed to fit children with Down syndrome. Unlike other frames, the bridge is adjusted to fit on their smaller noses and the arms are designed to help keep the glasses from slipping. Erin’s World frames are available in a variety of sizes to fit toddlers to adults.
