Simon Falk Eyecare in Leeds has launched a domiciliary business in partnership with Opticall Yorkshire in order to provide at home eye care services to people across the county.

The service has been launched in response to vulnerable patients not being able to easily access eye care during the pandemic.

Opticall Yorkshire’s Sarah Sykes and Caroline Thacker would carry out full eye examinations and Simon Falk Eyecare’s stock of frames would be used if they were required.

Optometrist Simon Falk said: ‘For some time, I have been looking to add home eye care services to our portfolio and I am delighted to have formed a partnership with Opticall Yorkshire to provide a first-class home visit service.’

He hoped that the new service would provide patients with reassurance that they could receive the vital eye care they needed while remaining safe.

Sykes and Thacker were providing services while being Covid compliant, which included wearing personal protective equipment and cleaning down the sight test area.

Sykes said: ‘We strongly believe in giving each patient the best care possible and are dedicated to going the extra mile to ensure every patient feels they have experienced five-star treatment.’
