Eye test home visits

We offer free home eye assessments to qualifying patients in Central Scotland.

This service is available in Ayrshire, Arran, Grampian, Greater Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Lothian, Fife, Forth Valley and Tayside Health Board areas.

Free eye care in the comfort of your own home

Our highly qualified optometrists are well equipped to carry out your free eye health test in the comfort of your own home. We offer this service in Central Scotland and can also offer tests to carers at the same time, dependent upon eligibility.

Your home eye care test will last for around 40 minutes. Once your prescription has been determined, we're able to offer tailor made solutions. We're also pleased to be able to provide additional aftercare as part of the Optical Express Care Plan, which will protect your glasses from accidental damage.

What happens at a home eye care visit?

  1. Visit

    An Optical Express optometrist, accompanied by an optical assistant, will visit your home to test your eyes, discuss your prescription and help with any vision problems that you may be experiencing.

  2. Test

    We'll conduct a thorough eye test, using the latest technology, which lasts for 40 minutes. Drops may be put into your eyes to help with this.

  3. Choose

    Once your prescription has been determined, you can choose from a large selection of frames and vision solutions to find the best for you.

  4. Deliver and fit

    We'll agree a suitable time to deliver and fit your new glasses, again in your own home.

  5. Aftercare

    By taking out an Optical Express Care Plan, you'll have a comprehensive aftercare package which can protect your new glasses against accidental damage. You'll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you can get a replacement pair quickly, if you need them.
