Home Visits

Some people are entitled to an NHS-funded mobile sight test (also known as a domiciliary sight test), where the ophthalmic practitioner comes to visit you:

  • in your own home
  • at a residential or care home
  • at a day centre

If you qualify for a free NHS sight test, you may be entitled to mobile services:

  • at home: if you’re unable to leave home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability
  • at a residential or care home: if you normally live there and you’re unable to leave the home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability
  • at a day centre: if you would have difficulty getting a sight test from an optometrist at their practice because of physical or mental illness or disability, or because you have difficulty communicating your health needs without help

 

“Pleasant, friendly, smiling, helpful and efficient from reception to optometrist. One big happy family atmosphere which you become part of when you enter as a customer. They go beyond the call of duty, which they did recently when my husband developed a detached retina. Thank you all and a special thanks to Stephen and Mr Doshi for all your help and advice.” Frances and Richard Overton
