Tinted lenses recommended by students provided by DSA
Two students have recently visited this optometrist to be assessed and were provided with tinted lenses partly funded by Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA).
This provision is often overlooked by students with many never arranging an assessment even though it is listed in their Assessment of Needs. Many participating optometrists invoice the funding body directly so there is no need to find the money up front and wait for it to be reimbursed.
It is highly recommended by students. These two Yorkshire based students stated it has made a huge difference to the ease of reading, how long they can read and so reduced the energy it takes to read and thus increased their motivation to read.
