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
