At-home eye tests are very similar to the ones you would have experienced in-store, just with a few adjustments and specialist equipment to make them home-friendly. All of our visiting opticians are fully experienced in conducting eye tests at home, so you can be sure you, or someone you care for, will receive the same care and attention you’re used to. Safety remains a priority so we are following the College of Optometrists’ and NHS England's guidelines regarding PPE. Find out more here
The typical home eye test begins with your optician visiting your home on a pre-arranged day, and they will usually call an hour before to check it's still convenient. They'll then ask about your eyecare history and any problems you may be having, before carrying out an eye test with specialised equipment for use in the home. You can learn about the full procedure below, including the types of tests we’ll carry out.
