Your optician will visit your home at the pre-arranged time and will call an hour before the appointment to check that it’s still convenient. During the visit they will ask you about your eyecare history and any problems you may be having. They will then conduct an eye test, using equipment specially designed for use in the home.

3 Choose your glasses

If your eye test shows that you need glasses there are hundreds to choose from, in price ranges from £25 to £149. We can help find the most suitable ones for you. If you qualify for NHS funding towards the cost of glasses, you may be eligible for a free pair.

4 Glasses delivered to your home

We’ll deliver your new glasses within 14 days of our visit. However, as your glasses are individually made to your prescription, it may take a little longer, if this is the case, we will let you know. You will also receive a written record of the outcome of your eye test and of the glasses you have chosen.

Our qualified optometrists are also qualified to look after the health of your eyes as well as test your vision. They can help manage more complex eye health conditions, such as pre- and post- cataract surgery care, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. In selected 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:
