It’s important to know what to expect during a sight test when we visit you.
Visioncall is a leading provider of home sight tests, making eye care accessible for those who can’t pop down to the high street unaccompanied.
What happens during a sight test?
The sight test that we carry out is the same as a sight test you’d receive from the high street.
Our optometrists will check your prescription and your eye health.
The only difference is we carry out a sight test in the comfort of your own home using mobile equipment.
However, our optometrists can use different techniques and equipment to ensure that everyone can have a sight test, regardless of communicative ability.
We offer a dementia-friendly sight test
Most people we help will undergo a subjective sight test (with a letter chart), but it can be a struggle for anyone who is unable to express their answer.
So, our optometrists can provide an objective sight test instead, which doesn’t require a verbal response.
Thanks to the specialist techniques of an objective sight test, we’re able to provide a quick and accurate prescription.
Visioncall’s person-centred eye care service
That’s not all you can expect during a sight test with Visioncall!
Ultimately, we deliver person-centred eye care with the help of our care planning tools.
A truly person-centred eye care service
We use the Lifestyle Questionnaire during a sight test to learn more about a person.
In doing so, this helps to ensure that their eye care recommendation is appropriate and necessary.
We provide a bespoke eye care recommendation
The Lifestyle Passport offers an overview of a person’s eye care needs and their vision with and without glasses.
Whether or not you require glasses, this concise summary is a tangible outcome of the sight test.
We also include information on any eye conditions that the person may have.
Wear the correct glasses
We also supply an Eyewear Reminder to help you remember that an individual should wear their glasses.
The Eyewear Reminder is most effective when placed in a person’s living area.
