Why have your eyes tested at home?

Forget about the hassle of travel and crowded waiting rooms.

A home eye test ensures your vision is optimised for your everyday surroundings and activities.

We dedicate as much time as needed for each appointment, ensuring you receive the comprehensive care you deserve. We firmly believe that quality eye care should never be hurried.

Our home tests are particularly convenient for individuals with mobility issues or cognitive challenges such as dementia. You can even have a loved one or carer with you for added support.

What will it cost?

You can have your eyes tested at home at no cost to you, if you qualify for an NHS eye test and you are unable to get to the opticians unaccompanied - maybe due to a mobility issue or an underlying health condition.

The full eligibility criteria is available on the NHS website, but many of our customers qualify for NHS eye tests for reasons such as:

  • being 60 years old or older
  • being diabetic
  • having glaucoma or being at risk (e.g. due to a family history of the condition)
  • being registered as partially sighted or blind

Don't worry, if you're not sure then just click the button below to complete the form, and we'll give you a call back and explain your options. If you don’t qualify, our standard home eye test fee is just £60.
