What happens during a home visit eye test?

When the optician first arrives they will spent some time talking with the patient or their chosen representative to identify any existing eyesight problems and other general health issues that could affect the sight of the patient.

The eye test then takes place using our digital test chart and, once finished, a prescription is written up and explained to the patient.

The patient can then choose from our large selection of frames (which may be free depending on benefits).

This all takes place in the comfort of the patients own home so they can be as relaxed as possible.

You are able to request someone to be with you during the test, if that is your wish.

How will I know if the optician is from Visioncall?

All Visioncall employees carry identity badges and have undertaken full disclosure. We are accountable to the General Optical Council and adhere to the Council's standards of clinical service and ethical care.
