Eye Care Liaison Officer (ECLO)

What does an ECLO do?

Eye Care Liaison Officers (ECLOs) or similar early intervention support staff work closely with medical and nursing staff in the eye clinic and the sensory team in social services. They provide those recently diagnosed with an eye condition with the practical and emotional support they need to understand their diagnosis, deal with their sight loss and maintain their independence.
