How do I get an eye test at home?

If you have difficulty leaving the house, it is possible to arrange for an optometrist (optician) to visit your home to give you a full eye test. This is known as a domiciliary eye test.

Your local optometrist or GP should be able to tell you who provides the eye tests at home in your area.
