Thomas H. Collison offer an unrivalled level of experience, skills and expertise in the care, management and provision of low vision services.

We provide low vision services to a number of hospitals in the South East and provide low vision products to hospitals, local councils, charities and opticians across the country. Additionally we have helped to shape the future of low vision services through our work with national low vision and optical committees and supported extensive research work in the field.

As the largest Low Vision supplier in the South East we have access to a wide range of specialist low vision devices and also offer additional spectacle dispensing services for cosmetic and pathological conditions including ptosis and prosthetics.
