Organisation details

Worried about your vision? We’re here for you.

Eye Clinic Liaison Officers (ECLOs) offer practical and emotional support to anyone affected by sight loss, including families and carers.

ECLOs are specially trained advisers based in hospital eye departments who work with people of all ages affected by sight loss. They offer information, practical advice, and emotional support, and help people access the support available to them from a wide range of other organisations and services. An ECLO can help people with the certification and registration process which leads to further support and benefits.

ECLOs provide guidance to help you:

• maintain your independence
• better understand your eye condition and treatment
• apply for helpful benefits and concessions

• stay in employment or education, or take up new opportunities
