At the Northampton Sight Centre in Kingsthorpe, we offer advice, information and product demonstrations enabling you to “try before you buy”.
You will find a range of small and inexpensive solutions such as a liquid level indicator that can assist you on making a hot drink, to more expensive electronic solutions such as a talking scanner for documents. All of the items we sell can greatly improve your independence and are sourced from a variety of leading suppliers.
Although we can’t stock everything, our friendly team are able to order in special requests from suppliers (within reason) and give you an unbiased opinion.
We also have a specially adapted vehicle that is our Mobile Sight Centre which travels the county parking-up at central locations for your convenience. You can just drop in to visit us – no need to book an appointment!
