This is a new domiciliary service provided by Specsavers. It is a home visiting opticians provided to anyone who can not attend a high street practice unattended due to mental/ physical illness. We can provide services to individual homes or care homes/ sheltered accommodation. This is a much under utlilised service as most are unaware it exists. Further still that it is provided by a company with whom many people have visited previously but no longer can.
