Eye tests at home

A recent news item on the BBC website featured an optician who carries out eye tests in people's homes, and raised awareness that anyone who is eligible for an NHS sight test, but cannot get to a high street practice unaccompanied because of a mental or physical disability, is entitled to a domiciliary sight test funded by the NHS.

You can read the BBC report here. The College of Optometrists, Pocklington Trust and Optical Confederation have produced a leaflet Sight Tests at Home which gives full details of the scheme, (including information for people in Wales).
