At Ochil Eyes, we believe the eye examination is about more than just making sure you have the right prescription. We believe its the single most important part of your journey with us.
Our test room features the most up to date equipment required to carry out thorough eye examinations including a fundus camera that allows us to take photos.
If you or someone you know finds it difficult to leave home unaided, you could be entitled to an NHS-funded eye examination in the comfort of your own home.
Our optometrist Richard and a member of the practice team will come out to your home at a pre-arranged time and will call you the day before to make sure it is still convenient. Richard will ask you about your eye history and about any problems you may be having.
He will then conduct an eye examination using equipment adapted for use on home visits. After your eye examination, he will discuss your eye health with you and any prescription requirements you may have. He can advise on the best kind of glasses for your needs and will then hand you over to Sam or Susy to discuss frame and lens options.
Being an independent practice allows us to offer a personalised and consistent service to our patients both in our practice and in your home. It will always be the same small team who come to visit you and who will answer any queries you may have via telephone.
We will always be honest and give you the best advice for your needs. We allocate at least one hour for every home visit we do so we will not rush you and will take our time to ensure we get it right.
