The College of Optometrists

Key points

  • You should explore visual problems by means of a thorough eye examination.
  • You should use tests that are appropriate to the patient’s needs.
  • You should tell the patient that there is currently no strong evidence that tinted lenses are effective in improving visual function in patients with specific learning difficulties. However, optometrists who practise in this area report that some patients find them helpful.
This guidance does not change what you must do under the law.
