Home visits for the housebound or those resident in care homes
We offer home visits to those who are unable to leave their homes or for those who are in care homes. If you or your family have any questions about accessing this service, please ask! We are here to help!
What do we provide?
We provide a through examination of your eyes to find out if your eyes are healthy, to check for any health issues and if a pair of new spectacles will help improve your vision when reading, watching T.V. or to help with any hobbies.
If we all agree that new glasses will help, we will show you a selection of spectacle frames to choose from. We will also provide advice regarding suitability, fit, style and cost. On order, we will take payment and provide a receipt.
Delivery and fitting
After 5 to 15 working days from order, we will again visit and fit the spectacles you have chosen and ensure that you are able to achieve the best possible vision.
If required, we will visit to adjust the spectacles after delivery. We also provide a repair service. A charge is usually payable for out of warranty repairs that are beyond a replacement screw or nose pad.
Low Vision Aids (LVAs)
If spectacles do not help, we will perform an LVA assessment to check if a magnifier, telescope or electronic device will help you see better.
More information on our range of magnifiers can by found here.
If we feel that you would benefit from further assistance we will discuss with you which other professionals can potentially provide help with making living in your home easier with sight loss.
We provide advice on reading lights and can supply from stock.
