Welcome to Eyecare Anywhere
An eye examination safeguards your vision and detects other conditions such a raised blood pressure, cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes.
Our priority is to provide the highest standards of professional eye care at competitive prices and to offer you the best advice and the reassurance that our service is fully checked by the NHS.
For many people, an eye examination in your home is free under the N.H.S.
We supply many services such as spectacles and safety spectacles. We also provide low vision aids and coloured overlays or tinted spectacle lenses for dyslexics or migraine sufferers

CORONA VIRUS CRISIS – SERVICE UPDATE 15/05/2020
The NHS halted all routine and domiciliary appointments in March 2020 but we have been available remotely for all patients who have been experiencing problems with their vision and you can access this service during normal office hours by ringing 07743730129 or 01132530904 and our Optometrist will discuss your eye problem and advise accordingly and maybe recommend self-treatments.
Following the Government’s announcement on Sunday of a phased approach to ease lock-down measures in England, we are presently working on a plan for safe re-starting of services. We currently have no national guidance from our professional bodies and we are seeking further clarification. We are also waiting for the NHS to say that we can see routine patients again. We hope this time will be soon and as soon as we have this information we will update this page.
The guidelines we are following are National Policy which we are duty-bound to follow and adhere to. Please continue to check our website for updates.
We are using this time to review all our policies and procedures in line with the Coronavirus crisis. Our primary concern is for the safety of all our patients and also ourselves
