Specsavers is encouraging residents on Arran to make use of its home visit service next week when their optometrist visits the island.
The home visits are available for anyone who is unable to leave their home unaccompanied due to a physical or mental illness, or disability and they can also visit patients in care homes and sheltered housing.
The Specsavers’ team, which will be on Arran on Tuesday October 5, can provide a comprehensive eye care service, including a free NHS-funded eye test, a wide selection of glasses and high standards of care – all from the comfort of your own home.
Karen Craig, customer service director for Specsavers home visits, said: ‘Many people on Arran who qualify, don’t always realise we offer a home visits service in the area.
‘Living on the Scottish Islands can pose additional challenges for those who are unable to leave their home but we can provide our service to more remote locations and will have an optometrist on the island on Tuesday October 5 for anyone who would like to book an appointment.
‘This service can make a real impact and help change people’s lives so we would encourage everyone who thinks they would benefit from this to get in touch.’
