HOME VISITS – Local Eyecare at Home!
We provide a comprehensive Home Visit service for those who cannot make it into one of our practices.
Anyone who is eligible for an NHS eye exam but who cannot get into our practice unaccompanied because of a physical or mental disability can now have a Home Eye Test funded by the NHS.
All of the essential equipment used at Ferrier & MacKinnon now has a portable version allowing us to bring trusted, local eyecare directly to your home.
Mrs H from Kinross is happy to share her experience of our service. “Before I knew about the Home Eyecare service, I had to use community transport to get into town which was a real nuisance. Luckily, my daughter heard that Ferrier & MacKinnon were now doing home visits.”
Paula, the Home Eyecare service’s Optical Advisor, added that “Mrs H is typical of patients that we see every day that really beneﬁt from local eyecare at home. She had struggled to make it into our Kinross practice and wasn’t aware that we now offered a home visit service.”
Mrs H added “I was hesitant at ﬁrst as you don’t know who is coming into your home with these large national companies. I must say, I was thrilled with Duncan & Paula from Ferrier & MacKinnon. The fact that I can have my eye health checked thoroughly in my own comfortable chair at home is a huge relief.”
