You can be sure that with Specsavers home visits, your eye test will be thorough and carried out with all the care and attention you’d expect. All our visiting opticians are fully qualified and experienced in conducting eye tests at home.
You can request a home visit using the online form or by calling us on 0800 198 1132. We’ll take a few details to ensure that you are eligible for a free home eye test and then arrange a convenient time to visit.
Optician carries out eye test at home
Your optician will visit your home at a pre-arranged time and will call an hour before to check it’s still convenient. They’ll ask about your eyecare history and any problems you may be having. They’ll then conduct an eye test, using specialised equipment for use in the home.
Choose your glasses
If your eye test shows that you need glasses, we’ll help you choose from our huge collection, in prices ranging from £19 to £169. If you qualify for NHS funding towards the cost of glasses, you may be eligible for a free pair. A Domiciliary Pricing Supplement of £25 may apply*.
Glasses delivered to your home
We’ll deliver your new glasses within 14 days of our visit. We’ll let you know if they take any longer, as your glasses are individually made to your prescription. You’ll also receive a written record of the outcome of your eye test and the glasses you’ve chosen.
Am I eligible for a free home eye test?
We provide a home eyecare service to those who are unable get to their local store unaccompanied, for example, due to a physical or mental disability. Find out if you qualify for a free home eye test.
*The Domiciliary Pricing Supplement is charged for sales of glasses carried out in a domiciliary environment. It reflects the increased costs involved with delivering a domiciliary service to customers, such as making individual visits to deliver and adjust glasses in peoples’ homes.
We do not apply the charge for our initial visit and provision of the free NHS-funded eye test. We do not apply the charge if there is no need for glasses. We also do not apply the charge to our £19-£49 ranges when you have a full NHS optical voucher, allowing us to provide fully funded glasses to qualifying customers.
As well as testing your vision, our mobile opticians are also qualified to look after the health of your eyes. They can help manage more complex eye health conditions, such as pre- and post- cataract surgery care, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. And in select areas, these services are delivered on behalf of the NHS, so there is no cost to you. Find out more about these common eye health conditions.
