Home Eyecare provides a home eye test service and specs for those who are housebound or unable to get to an Optical Practice unaccompanied.
We pride ourselves on providing a bespoke service to the housebound patient. We endeavour to work around the individual with minimal fuss and with minimal movement required from the patient.
Our specialist equipment means we can work in often very cramped surroundings and yet deliver a professional, caring and courteous service. The home eye test will involve examining the health of the eyes as well as maximising vision. If problems are detected, a report will be sent to the patient’s doctor for onward referral to an Ophthalmologist.
Our extensive selection of frames ranges from basic to top-end designers, from cutting edge to traditional designs. All lens types and brands are available. All frames are adjusted at the visit to ensure a comfortable fit.
In many cases the home eye test is free i.e. covered by the NHS, for example housebound over 60s or those receiving certain benefits e.g housebound and receiving income-support / Tax Credits. According to the benefits received there may also be help towards the cost of specs. For those patients who are housebound but do not qualify for a free NHS home eye test a charge will apply for the home visit.
