Home Eye Sight Test Examination at Home
Our optometrists are now able to perform an eye examination at home privately and under the NHS. We believe everybody should have access to great quality eyecare that we can deliver.
Eye tests are extremely important especially as we become older. If you are unable to visit our practice then we would be more than happy to visit you at the comfort of your own home. We can provide a full domiciliary (home visiting) service.
This service is mainly for our elderly patients and those that are housebound. Once one of our optometrist has performed an eye test, we will then be able to provide you with prescription eye glasses.
We will bring with us all the necessary equipment to carry out a full examination including a check on the general health of your eye. We try to provide a similar service to that you would have received at our Practice. Please call us to book an appointment, and we will prepare the paperwork. We will always call the day before your appointment to confirm if it is still convenient.
We will give you advice on your vision and what will help you to see sharper. There are various types of lenses from single vision to bifocals and varifocals. We can apply an anti-reflection (anti-glare) and scratch resistant coating to your spectacles for added protection and comfort. We can even advice on appropriate lighting, low vision aids and how we can make you daily visual tasks much easier.
