Templeman Opticians Home Visits

A family-run independent opticians who have been servicing Essex with outstanding eye care at a great value. 

They have been spesalising in working with the elderly over 60 or those who are housebound for over 30 years.

Templeman opticians have kept up with competitors like Specsavers home visits & vision call and we see them doing great things in the next few years to come.

Vision Call from Scotland.

a spokesperson from visioncall has stated “At Visioncall we believe that regardless of a person’s age or needs they have the right to better sight. … We are dedicated to enabling and empowering”.

Recently in the last few days Visioncall, the domiciliary provider of eye care services in care homes, was acquired by Optimism Health Group.

Do Specsavers still offer Healthcall services?

 

Specsavers home visits service used to go by another name — Specsavers Healthcall.
If you discovered them via another health service, website or by referral, you may have used their old Healthcall name. 

A spokesperson from Specsavers home visits stated:

2While our name may have changed, rest assured that our home eye care service is just the same as before, right down to the high-quality care our customers receive during home visits.”

If you have any questions or queries about their home visits service, please call 0800 198 1132 to speak to their team.

OutsideClinic speak on Why eye health is important.

Eye tests aren’t just about checking your vision or making sure you have the right glasses – they’re a vital part of your overall health care. Lots of eye diseases and eye health conditions, such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma, don’t have many symptoms early on, which means they can damage your eyesight or general health if they aren’t picked up.

The NHS recommends to have your eyes tested at least every two years, and sooner if your optician requests. So even if you’re not experiencing any problems with your eyesight right now, it’s important to schedule regular eye tests where these potential problems can be identified. That way if you need further treatment you can be referred to a specialist doctor before too much damage is done to your vision.
