Park Lane Opticians Macclesfield

Home Eye Tests

Park Lane Opticians offer home visits in Macclesfield, Bollington and Prestbury and you will have to wait a little longer than for a practice appointment. A home eye test is free if you are over 60 and are unable to get to come into our practice without someone’s help. We welcome the presence of a relative or carer when we visit.

It is useful to have your current glasses, an old spectacle prescription and details of any medication you’re currently taking. It is also helpful if the room can be darkened and there is a small table or trolley to hand.

Your eye examination includes an assessment of the external and internal eye, a range of tests to determine your prescription as well as measurement of eye pressure. It is not possible to perform as thorough a test in your home so if possible we would recommend you attend the practice.

Pupil dilation with eye drops is sometimes needed to get a better retinal view or a photograph and this may be recommended if you suffer from macular degeneration or are at risk of eye disease.

Our experienced Optometrists tailor the home eye test to every individual. In most cases we will deliver and fit your new glasses within 2 weeks.
