Here are our reasons why you should allow our optometrists to provide you with an eye test at home :
1. Free NHS Eye Test
Did you know that anyone who is over the age of 60 and housebound due to mental or physical disability is entitled to a free NHS eye test at home.
For patients under the age of 60 who are housebound and receiving tax credits or jobseekers allowance they are also entitled to a free home visit.
If you have diabetes or glaucoma and are housebound you are entitled to a free NHS eye test at home.
2. Elderly and Housebound
We regularly provide eye tests for the elderly at home or the elderly that are living in care homes. We regularly visit patients at home that may be suffering from mental illnesses including dementia. We also provide home eye tests for sufferers of chronic illnesses and mobility difficulties.
3. Detecting other Diseases
An eye examination lets us know more about the health of your eyes but also allows us to detect some diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension. The home eye test can aid in detecting some cancers and tumours.
