19 January 2017 - Local Opticians Hits The Road


For over 30 years Edmonds & Slatter Opticians have offered a home eye testing service to patients who are unable to visit the opticians unaided for medical reasons.
Edmonds and Slatter Opticians strongly believe that patients who are unable to visit them in practice should not miss out on the quality eye care that they provide. Having recently re-launched the service, wanting to make people more aware of its existence, they are now championing eyecare for all with their Home Eyecare Service. They are able to travel to people located within a reasonable distance from their three practices situated in Blaby, Glenfield and Lutterworth.

Many people are not aware that anyone aged 60 or more and unable to leave the home unaccompanied because of a physical or mental disability is entitled to a free NHS eye test at home. If you do not fit into those categories, Home eye tests that are not funded by the NHS are also available from Edmonds and Slatter. Dispensing Optician, Michelle Stubley, is one of the qualified Home Eye Testing team at Edmonds and Slatter. “We understand how difficult it is for anyone who is housebound and for their family members to organise eyecare visits so we aim to make the process as easy as possible.”

Michelle continued “We have always offered the Home Eyecare Service but have recently started making people more aware of the service for any immobile relatives. Patients who can no longer get to us should not miss out on the quality of service and selection of eyewear we offer.” She continued, “After testing a patients eyes for several years, not only does the patient develop a bond and rapport with us but we develop attachments to them, wanting to take care of the patient and their eyecare in the best possible way.”

There are several reasons to choose the Edmonds & Slatter Home Eyecare Service:

•    They are locally based, so you benefit from a shorter waiting period for appointments, adjustments or spectacle repairs.
•    They have fully trained staff who offer the highest quality clinical care and a friendly familiar face.
•    They actively encourage family members to be present particularly when the person being tested finds it difficult to make decisions for themselves.
•    They provide a wide range of spectacles to suit all budgets and lifestyles.
•    All glasses are hand delivered and expertly fitted.


The Home Eyecare Service is not restricted to your own home. If you or a relative have now relocated to a care home, Edmonds and Slatter can come and visit you there - at your place of residence. Some care homes have eyecare providers in place, but the same as if you were shopping on the high street, you are able to choose the provider of your eyecare yourself, and so you can still have your local, preferred optician visit you. To book an appointment for your home eye test, or for any further information please call our Blaby practice on 0116 277 7733.
