home visits

We are happy to arrange a home visit for people who cannot get to the practice to have their sight tested. This can be for private or NHS tests.

The NHS guidelines are as follows:

An NHS-funded mobile sight test is where an optometrist comes to visit you in your own home or at a day centre.

If you are eligible for an NHS-funded sight test you may also be entitled to a mobile sight test. If you meet one of the criteria listed below then you may have your sight test:

  1. At home-If you are unable to leave home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability
  2. At a residential or care home-If you are a resident and you are unable to leave the home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability
  3. At a day centre-If you cannot get a sight test at an optician's practice because of physical or mental illness or disability, or because of difficulties in communicating your health needs unaided.

Tip: You may find more advice and support in our sections about adult social care and caring for someone with communication problems.
