Eye Vision Test: Why are Home Eye Tests Important?

A professionally conducted free eye test provides vital benefits, which allow patients to:

  • Enhance vision therefore improving eyesight and quality of life
  • Preserve sight for as long as possible (270,000 people over 75 experience unnecessary sight loss due to wearing outdated spectacles or no spectacles)
  • Reduce the possibility of accidents such as falls (over 89,000 falls needing hospital attention occur annually as a result of visual impairment)
  • Maintain independence
  • Avoid or minimise sight loss from problems such as cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.

Advantages of Home Eye Tests

Visioncall optometrists provide thorough home eye tests for those who find it difficult to attend a high street practice. During home eye tests, our optometrists can assess the immediate surroundings and gauge changes that may help in improving eyesight for the patient– lighting, reflective surfaces and so on all have a bearing.

Elderly patients and people suffering from dementia in particular are more relaxed in familiar surroundings. Communication is much easier during home eye tests, leading to a faster clinical diagnosis and prescription. The patient will be making progress in improving eyesight much sooner than anticipated.

What’s more, we have an eye vision test to suit anyone, as many of our specialist techniques do not require a full response from our patients.
