Free patient resources

Our patient resources are helping members to provide the highest standards of patient care.

Share options

The College is here to support you in practice by providing clinical and professional advice and guidance and a range of practical resources - including resources for patients of all ages. They are all available to order online and completely free of charge.   

Our leaflets and information sheets have been written and checked by clinical experts. They provide clear information on a growing range of topics and conditions as suggested by our members.

Younger patients love our stickers and activity sheets. They encourage an interest in vision and eye health care and make great rewards for patience, bravery and good behaviour!
