Home Visits

If you are housebound and in need of an eye test then The Opticians At Home is just what you need. One of our friendly opticians, accompanied by one of our experienced optical assistants, will visit you to perform a thorough eye test in the comfort of your own surroundings.

We use up-to-date equipment so you will receive the same thorough health check as you would in the practice and we bring a selection of frames for you to choose from, should you decide to get new spectacles.

At The Opticians Hawick we understand that it can sometimes be a bit daunting to let a stranger into your home so to try and reassure you we promise the following:

  • You can request a male or female optician if you have a preference.
  • You will only ever be visited by one of our two resident opticians, we don’t use locums.
  • We will never put pressure on you to purchase glasses, we want primarily to check the health of your eyes.
  • You are welcome to have a friend or family member with you during our visit.

If you decide to purchase glasses from us we will deliver them to you when they are ready and make any fitting adjustments that are needed. We are happy to pop out and readjust them at a later date if you need us to.

Because we are a local opticians we can offer a prompt response in the case of an emergency.

We can offer home visits across all the Scottish Border towns and villages: Hawick; Jedburgh; Galashiels; Kelso; Selkirk; Newcastleton; Langholm.
