Hello Andrew,

my experience was good and in my case they received the letter from the
high street optician and checked it out with my consultant at the
Ophthalmic unit of the local hospital and awarded me higher rate on
grounds of 1/60 visual acuity. I wonder whether your acuity is
borderline. Apparently you have to have 3/60 or less to qualify
automatically.

Best,
Clive

Hello
While knowing nothing about the test, would it be possible to do by
feel?
Are the 3 window areas raised? In that case a solution might be to use
polythene gloves. These should be supplied with the Braille/audio
directions. I think the principle here is that if something is
inaccessible we need to ensure that providing a solution costs the
person who provided the inaccessible original money. Sadly, learning
seems to only come through pain.

Regards
Tony
