Free Home Visits from Optometrists
 
Good eyesight is a significant factor in retaining independence and quality of life as we all get older. Regular eye tests can help to detect, monitor and help treat eye conditions such as Cataracts, Glaucoma, Age-related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy. 
 
Anyone who is over 60 and cannot leave home unaccompanied are entitled to a free NHS eye test at their place of residence. Those who receive certain benefits may also qualify for help towards the cost of glasses. You may also be entitled to NHS-funded   mobile services where the ophthalmic       practitioner comes to visit you at home, a care home or at a day centre.
 
You can call 111 to find out who provides mobile sight tests in your area.
