Home Visits

As we age, there is a higher risk of sight and health issues so it’s vital to continue having regular eye examinations. Francis Opticians provide thorough eye examinations to those who cannot visit us in practice unaccompanied, due to physical or mental disability. This service is usually free of charge, but please call us to discuss your circumstances and to verify if you are eligible.

1You can be absolutely sure about the quality of eye care provided by Francis Opticians. You will be given a thorough eye examination along with the quality of care. Our optometrist is fully qualified and properly experienced in conducting eye examinations at home. We are proud to provide such a high level in eye care and try our best to make the appointment that is most convenient for you.

We need only a few details to check eligibility for the free eye test at home and then a time is booked for the visit.

Francis Opticians will call approximately an hour before visiting to ensure the appointment has no change of plans. Once confirmed, they will come over and may ask questions related to your eye care history or issues faced. Once this is done they will conduct the eye examination using special equipment designed for use in homes.

If the optometrist prescribes the use of glasses then these are readily available and we are able to provide a range of different choices to suit your preference. If the patient is eligible for NHS funding then a contribution towards the glasses may be provided.

Glasses will be custom made for you and be delivered and fitted by a qualified dispensing optician a few weeks later.
