If you, your family member or your client can’t get to a High Street Optician without assistance give us a call to book your FREE NHS eye test.

We provide FREE NHS Eye tests for the over 60’s as well as free glasses for people receiving benefits such as income support and guaranteed pension credit. If you are not entitled to an NHS eye test we are still only too happy to visit you for an eye examination privately in the comfort of your own home throughout the Dorset & Hampshire area.
