Specsavers opticians and your care home

Specsavers opticians and your care home

Your residents’ eye health in safe hands

Our home visit opticians are experienced in carrying out eye test in residential care homes and are sensitive to the specific needs of the people who live in them. We also want to make the delivery of eyecare to care home residents as simple as possible for staff too.

This is why we’ve designed the Personal Eyecare Package for use in busy care homes. It’s a simple and easy to use tool that contains each resident’s personal eyecare information, and we are confident it will prove to be indispensible.

How the Personal Eyecare Package works

The results from each eye test that we conduct are recorded in the Personal Eyecare Package document by our mobile opticians. This makes it easy for you and the resident’s family to see the outcome of the test, and for your staff to understand the visual difficulties your resident is experiencing.

The package also includes a personalised illustrated guide that shows the kind of activities for which the resident will need glasses. It’s designed to be a quick reference for your staff, helping ensure that your residents can enjoy life in your care home to the full.

'I couldn't believe how easy Specsavers made this for me. Our residents love their optician, they see the same person each time so they really get to know each other, and there wasn't any paperwork for me. I'm so pleased I changed our opticians.'
