Free Eye Test from Visioncall Home Visiting Opticians
We believe that good sight enhances virtually every aspect of life. That’s why for almost 20 years, as the UK’s leading provider of home eye care, we have been proud to offer free home eye tests to over 120,000 clients each year.
A regular eye exam test is the best way to stave off any issues which could affect patients’ vision, arguably the most vital of the five senses.
Free Eye Tests At Home
In the UK, if a patient is no longer able to access their regular optical practice unaided on their own, then they are entitled to a free home visit and free eye tests covered under the NHS. At Visioncall, we are one of the UK’ s leading home visiting opticians and we are proud to provide free eye tests at home for the elderly and housebound. Our attentive staff can carry out a free NHS eye test in any care home in the UK or, in the comfort of your own home, by offering a free home eye test.
We take our responsibility very seriously, and that is why we provide each patient with a fully qualified optician who will visit them at home, wherever that may be, to carry out a regular eye exam, with all eye test results explained in full.
Experts In Home Eye Care
Optometrists at Visioncall can assist you whether you are looking for something as simple as a new prescription for driving or reading glasses, or something more health related, and in conducting eye tests with the most advanced equipment and eye examination procedures, in line with latest industry regulations.
Our home visit opticians are also specialists in eye tests at home for glaucoma and other visual defects that can be found during an eye test including:
A Caring Approach To Dementia, Alzheimers & Infirm
Our dedicated staff are highly skilled in working with those in need of home eye tests and living with dementia and Alzheimers, or for over 60's who are perhaps in need of special care. In instances of dementia for example, the free NHS eye test is carried out using a specially developed dementia eye test chart, which incorporates picture cards rather than standard letters, making the vision test exam much easier for the patient. Where the use of an eye chart is not viable, perhaps if the patient has communication difficulties due to for example, a stroke, then our team will then use state of the art portable electronic equipment and industry standard techniques to establish the accurate prescription.
Our home clinic eye test includes the classic standard eye chart, of different sizes of letters, to be identified through various strengths of lens, so we always bring picture cards to our eye appointments.
We want all of our eye patients to enjoy maximum benefit from their sight, so to book a free eye test with our dedicated team, or to enquire about prices, vouchers or offers for any of our products or services simply call us to book an appointment on 0845 050 1831 or book your eye test online in just seconds to get a free NHS eye test at home from Visioncall!
