Optician Home Visits

Man with glasses in hand

We provide a sight test at home service. If you are aged 60 or over and are unable to go out without help or assistance, you are entitled to an eye test in the comfort of your own home and this is provided free of charge under the NHS.

At Black's Opticians, this service is always provided by Philip Hogg, so you will always see the same optician. Philip has 20 years of experience of home visits. To arrange an optician home visit, call us today.
