Delivering eye care to you in the comfort of your own home.

how does a home visit work?

We are currently adhering to very strict safety and hygiene guidelines on home visits.

Please call the practice and we will carry out full phone triage before any visit to your home.

A home eye examination is similar to an eye test in a clinic and includes an assessment of the external and internal eye, the finding of your correct spectacle prescription for different tasks as well as a measurement of your eye pressure.

We use modern portable optical equipment which enables us to carry out eye exam in the comfort of your own home.

Tests such as pupil dilation and visual fields are sometimes needed when recognised as being necessary by the optometrist.

Depending on our clinical findings and with your agreement we may need to refer you to your GP for further tests.

We carry over 100 frames with us, carefully selected to provide a wide choice for both men and women and to suit all budgets from NHS through to designer frames.

A full range of lenses are available from standard single vision to the latest ultra-thin and light multifocal designs. We also offer Transitions photo chromic, tinted and reflection free, bifocals and scratch resistant, hard coated lenses.

We can supply magnifiers and offer advice on lighting and treatments for conditions such as dry eye.

Your home eye examination will be funded by the NHS if you are unable to visit your optician unaccompanied and if any of the categories below apply to you:
