Specsavers Opticians - Home eye tests


Home eye tests

If you, or someone you know, are unable to leave home unaccompanied due to a physical or mental illness or disability, we can come to you.  

Our team of mobile opticians provide a comprehensive eyecare service to those who cannot get to one of our stores unaccompanied – check if you or the person is eligible here. You can benefit from a free NHS-funded eye test, a great selection of glasses and high standards of care – all from the comfort of your own home. 

What happens in a home eye test?

At-home eye tests are very similar to the ones you would have experienced in-store, just with a few adjustments and specialist equipment to make them home-friendly. All of our visiting opticians are fully experienced in conducting eye tests at home, so you can be sure you, or someone you care for, will receive the same care and attention you’re used to. Safety remains a priority so we are following the College of Optometrists’ and NHS England's guidelines regarding PPE. Find out more here

The typical home eye test begins with your optician visiting your home on a pre-arranged day, and they will usually call an hour before to check it's still convenient. They'll then ask about your eyecare history and any problems you may be having, before carrying out an eye test with specialised equipment for use in the home. You can learn about the full procedure below, including the types of tests we’ll carry out.
