Supply of spectacles and aftercare

If you supply spectacles to a patient with a learning disability you should consider labelling them with the patient’s name, date of supply and whether they are for distance or near tasks. Labelling should be suitable in terms of the patient’s dignity, infection control and type of frame supplied. SeeAbility has factsheets on wearing spectacles for people with learning disabilities. 62
