Maintaining good eye health and sight levels is crucial for an individual's wellbeing and quality of life. If you would like to arrange an essential/emergency home visit from your local clinical team, please get in touch today. We are dedicated to enabling and empowering individuals to see the world around them more clearly. Our patients are some of the most vulnerable people in our society, and our specialist holistic approach to eye care means that they can benefit from being more engaged with the world around them, feel less isolated and be safer within it.
This is the mission that drives our team to deliver a person-centred eye care service across the UK. Since 1994, we have been a leading eye care provider to the UK care home sector, delivering home sight tests to those unable to visit a high street optician. Research indicates that more than 50% of elderly people living in care homes are living with some form of sight loss. Sight loss canprevent people from taking part in activities as they may experience increased anxiety and frustration. Our optometrists undergo dementia-friendly training to make sure we can communicate and engage respectfully with every person we visit, regardless of their communicative ability.
To function properly, the human eyeball requires a certain amount of internal pressure, which is provided by a flow of liquid. Too much or too little pressure can cause damage to the optic nerve at the back of the eye (though problems also arise if the nerve itself is flawed). This is a disease called glaucoma and it irreparably damages the optic nerve, which carries information from your eye to your brain. To maximise protection, it is recommended that tests are taken every two years. There are three specialist tests, all painless, and for best results all three should be taken.
