"We all need to look after our eyes. This book shows Jade and Mac getting their eyes tested and explains what happens afterwards. Jade is given glasses to help her see better, and Mac has to have an operation. Their feelings about what happens to them, and how things are explained to them so they can give informed consent, are addressed. Fiona also has sight problems and uses a cane to get around safely, and a magnifying glass to read. This book can be used to prepare someone before having as eye test, hospital visit or operation. It can also be used to help someone to understand the adaptations that are available for people with sight problems. It is an invaluable communication tool for eye care professionals during consultations and before treatments.
