Home Visiting Opticians

Free home sight/eye tests under the NHS for eligible categories

What does it do?

We are contracted by the NHS to provide sight tests at home or wherever it is convenient for anyone who finds it difficult to get to a high street optician.

We very much bring the service to the patient and our equipment is very compact and portable and can be set up in the smallest of places.

The sight tests themselves are just as you would expect to get in any high street practice but with the added benefit  that we bring the eye test to the patient.

Along with the sight tests, we are also able to provide a wide range of frames to choose from.  They range widely in both terms of styles as well as cost.

Another part of the service is the after care, which is free of charge and includes the delivery and fitting of the spectacles to ensure that they look and feel comfortable.  It also includes dealing with any issues after the spectacles have been delivered such as repairs and adjustments

Who it is for?

What it costs:
