Eye Care Liaison Officers (ECLOs also known as Eye Clinic Liaison Officers) have lots of knowledge on eye conditions and on helpful local and national services.
By offering dedicated individual care, ECLOs can talk to you about your worries and give you advice on how to lessen the impact your eye condition may have on your life.
ECLOs act as an important bridge between health and social services and are central to the support and wellbeing of patients in eye clinics. They also help prevent avoidable sight loss, by talking through treatment and helping people to understand their medication if necessary
ECLOs are there to provide you with up-to-date information and put you in touch with useful services by making referrals on your behalf.

ECLOs are also able to explain the process of becoming registered as blind or partially sighted and the benefits of being registered.
ECLOs can work with people of all ages, but some may specialise in working with people of a specific age group, such as older people. However, all ECLOs will provide you with support and advice if you ask for it.
While ECLOs are well informed about eye conditions and are able to provide you with information, you should speak to your ophthalmologist (hospital eye doctor) about any medical queries.
