Photo of Eye examinationPrince & Bates offer sight testing at your home, if getting into the practice is not possible. If you are unable to attend the practice unaccompanied, you are entitled to an NHS funded visit and eye examination (you must also be eligible for a free NHS eye examination). If you do not meet the NHS requirements for a home visit, we can still come out to see you privately, but there will be a charge for this service.

Portable equipment will be brought to examine the health of your eyes, and check your glasses prescription. We also bring a selection of frames for you to choose from, should you need new glasses. This service is particularly valuable for those who are housebound and therefore unable to see us in practice as regular sight testing and suitable glasses are still very important. Please contact the practice if you wish to register for a home visit.
