I was working in an Optician’s practice when a lady came in to make an appointment for her mother. She explained that her mother was in a nursing home and had been seen by the Optician who was the nursing home’s provider. The lady and her mother were not happy with the provider. The nursing home were unable to suggest an alternative supplier so the lady felt she had to bring her elderly and frail mother out of the home to obtain a different eye examination provider.
