My Mum who suffers from dementia had a home visit from Clare. Mum had an eye test at home and was shown a range of glasses to choose from. Mum picked 2 pairs of glasses and returned with them a week later as well as recommending a magnifier for Mums low vision. Throughout the process Clare called and updated me on what was happening. A very professional and friendly service That I would highly recommend.Kevin - London
