Eye Test at Home

An eye examination checks much more than just your prescription. It tests for signs of eye disease and general health problems such as diabetes and glaucoma. Many sight and even life threatening conditions can be detected through regular examinations. If problems are detected, advice will be given and a referral will be sent to the patient’s doctor.

At Lad & Turner we recommend that most people should have their eyes tested every two years. However, in some circumstances, we may recommend more frequent NHS sight tests.


For example, if you:

  • are a child and wear glasses
  • have diabetes
  • are aged 40 or over and have a family history of glaucoma
  • are aged 70 or over


And if you are housebound, then having regular eye examinations is just as important but may appear more difficult to arrange. However the portable nature of our equipment means we can bring our eye testing environment direct to your home, with little inconvenience and still provide a professional and supportive service.

We can provide eye examinations and advice services in your own home if you are housebound or unable to leave home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability. If this sounds like you then you might also qualify for FREE home visit if you meet the requirements of our checklist below.
