Home eye tests for people with diabetes

For people with diabetes, regular eye tests are a crucial step in protecting your eyesight. 

Whilst your diabetic eye screenings focus on detecting diabetes-related conditions, an eye test allows us to optimise your vision and check your overall eye health.

With our home service, you can relax and enjoy the test from the comfort of your own sofa.

You can have your eyes tested at home, at no cost to you, if you're living with diabetes and you are unable to get to the opticians unaccompanied

Glasses and treatments

With OutsideClinic, you'll have access to a range of solutions tailored to your individual needs

We offer glasses for everyone, regardless of style, budget, face shape or vision loss. Our optician will bring a variety of frames to your appointment, allowing you to find the perfect pair from the comfort of your sofa. 

If you have an NHS optical voucher, you can use it towards the cost of glasses.

For those managing conditions like diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular oedema, we provide Noctura 400 eye masks.

These overnight sleep masks are a straightforward, non-invasive solution you can use at home to treat and prevent the conditions. They are designed for comfort and ease of use, offering a proactive approach to treatment and prevention.
