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 are able to use different techniques and equipment to ensure that everyone can have a sight test, regardless of communicative ability.

Most people we help will undergo a subjective sight test (with a letter chart), but this can be a struggle for those who may not be able to express their answer.

So our optometrists can alternatively provide an objective sight test, 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.

This allows everyone to have the regular sight test they need to help them to see better and live better.

That’s why Visioncall optometrists undergo training to ensure they can communicate with verbal and non-verbal people and deliver a suitable sight test to each individual.

Visioncall’s person-centred eye care

That’s not all you can expect during a sight test with Visioncall!

Our bespoke eye care planning tools help a person and their loved ones to understand their eye care needs and recommendation.

Put simply, we deliver person-centred eye care with the help of our care planning tools.

We use the Lifestyle Questionnaire during a sight test to learn more about a person.

This helps to ensure that their eye care recommendation is appropriate and necessary.

The Lifestyle Passport provides an overview of a person’s eye care needs and their vision with and without glasses.

It also includes information on any eye conditions that the person may have.

Whether or not you require glasses, this succinct summary is a tangible outcome of the sight test.

Remember to care for your eyes between sight tests to see better and live better for longer!
