Home Eye Examination

The majority of eye conditions don’t have any symptoms, so one or more of your service users could have a visual problem without even knowing it.

Vast Range of Glasses

Should one of your residents require eyewear they’re in for a treat. As well as supplying a large range of spectacles, our optician also carries a wide variety of them when he makes visits.

Training we can offer you and your staff

When it comes to keeping your residents’ vision in great health you could also be making your job easier. Visual problems can cause accidents including falls and bumps; most of which can be prevented with the right knowledge.
