Home Visits

If you are unable to come into the practice we offer a home visiting service. We will conduct a full and comprehensive eye examination in the comfort of your home at a time and day that is convenient for you. If new spectacles are required we carry a large selection of frames to suit all budgets.

When the spectacles have been manufactured to your prescription we will come out to your home again and ensure they fit properly.
