Home visiting service offered by opticians
The team at Specsavers in Worcester have been busy raising awareness about their home visiting service, Specsavers Healthcall.
They have been visiting doctor’s surgeries and care homes in the local area to talk to residents about the new service, which provides eyecare at home to those who cannot visit a high street optician unaccompanied due to a physical or mental disability.
Members of the team are available to provide guidance talks about eye health and age, as well as the Healthcall service, and can be contacted on 01905 729779, while more information can also be found by visiting the website.
Specsavers Healthcall Service
The optician will visit your home at a 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.
If your eye test shows that you need glasses there are hundreds to choose from, starting from just £25. We can help find the most suitable frames for you and if you qualify for NHS funding towards the cost of glasses, you may be eligible for a free pair.
The team aim to 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 happens, Specsavers will be sure to let you know. You will also receive a written record of the outcome of your eye test and of the glasses you have chosen.
