High Wycombe Home Eye Tests

There are many people who are not able to come in and experience our leading technology and service in our High Wycombe Practice, thankfully, Home Eye Tests are also available.

Redgate Opticians is renowned for its excellent clinical care and technology, which is why the NHS has partnered with Redgate Opticians to offer home eye care services in the Buckinghamshire area.

You may qualify for a free NHS-funded eye test at home if you are unable to visit an optician unaccompanied due to physical or mental disability, and are any of the following:

  • Aged 60 or over
  • Registered blind or partially sighted
  • Diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma
  • Considered to be at risk of glaucoma, as advised by an optician
  • Aged 40 or over and your mother, father, brother, sister, son or daughter has been diagnosed with glaucoma
  • Receiving benefits *
  • Entitled to, or named on, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
  • On a low income and named on a valid HC2 (full help) or HC3 (partial help) certificate
  • Eligible for an NHS Complex Lens Voucher (our optician will advise on the entitlement).


* Universal credit, Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit Guarantee Credit.


The process is simple, to arrange a home visit, simply call 01494 258690. One of our Specialist Optometrists and Dispensing Assistants will then arrive at the agreed time with photo ID and do all the necessary checks and assessments. They are able to provide glasses, treat and advise on eye-care matters, or refer to the hospital.

If glasses are needed, we carry a large range of styles, sizes and colours. All lens options are available as if you were instore. The optometrist will advise which lenses are most suitable according to your needs and will select the correct frames to ensure the maximum benefit of vision and comfort.

The glasses fitting appointment is normally arranged for a week later, this means that we can properly fit the glasses and ensure your vision is as expected.
