Frequently asked Questions

What is domiciliary eye care?

Domiciliary eye care refers to eye care provided in the comfort of your own home, rather than in a traditional practice. 

Who can benefit from domiciliary eye care?

Domiciliary eye care is particularly beneficial for anyone who finds

leaving the house difficult, perhaps elderly, or living with a disability

that makes it challenging for them to visit a traditional practice.


What services are provided in domiciliary eye care?

Domiciliary eye care covers a range of related examinations,

assessments, and treatments. These may include eye examinations,

spectacle dispensing, evaluation and management of eye conditions

such as cataracts or glaucoma, and the provision of support and advice.

How can I request domiciliary eye test?

Very simple, just give us a call or send us an email.

You do not need to be referred.


Are there any eligibility requirements for domiciliary eye care?

Yes, the simplist way to check eligibility is to give us a call

and we can chat through your own circumstances.


How often should I have a domiciliary eye test?

This is the same as for anyone visiting a practice.

Under the age of 70, every two years, and over 70, every year.

There will be exceptions and the optician who tests your eyes will advise.

How much does a domiciliary eye test cost?

If you are over 60 your eye test and our visit

is funded by the NHS and so there is no charge to you.


What should I expect during a domiciliary eye test?

During a domiciliary eye care visit, our optician will come to your home

and perform a comprehensive assessment of your eyes.

This may include vision testing, evaluation of eye health, and discussions

about any concerns or symptoms you may be experiencing.

They will also provide any necessary recommendations for further care,

referral and spectacle correction for improved vision.
