Mobile Optometry and What It Means

Mobile Optometry and What It Means

If you have done an eye examination previously, you would be familiar with the optometrist, tests and the waiting time….

We’ve eliminated all that and now you can have your eye examination in the comfort of your own home.

Mobile optometry is defined as optometry services capable of being moved around freely. 


Mobile optometry enables individuals to be screened by optometrists in their homes, offices, or a location they are comfortable with. In addition, the optometry equipment is fully portable and able to cater to patients who cannot move well, allowing vision care to be more accessible. 

Our mobile optometrist will bring the various eye examination equipment to your location for a standard or comprehensive eye health screening.

Tests include(s): 

  1. Lifestyle and Vision Environment Assessment
  2. Eye Refraction (For Eyeglasses)
  3. Corneal Health Evaluation (For Contact Lenses)
  4. Retina Photography

The examination will screen for common eye health conditions such as refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism), cataracts, glaucoma, dry eyes, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other eye conditions. 

After the mobile eye examination, you will be able to access the details of the results online with your computer or laptop. Then, the package for the purchase of glasses or contact lenses will be delivered right to your doorstep.

What is the difference between retail and mobile optometry?

Mobile Optometrists can provide the same services and assessments and even more compared to retail optometrists. 

The standard procedures will examine your prescription, corneal and retinal health. However, some retail stores may not be equipped with the tools to provide a comprehensive screening. 

When examining in your own home or office, our optometrist can understand your vision care needs, such as your workstation and lighting conditions and provide the most accurate prescription for your lifestyle. 

Who is suitable for Mobile Optometry services?

Anyone and everyone. If you would like to be screened in the comfort of your own home or a location of your choice, mobile optometry allows you to obtain your spectacle prescription and eye screening conveniently. 

We cater to individuals with disabilities and mobility issues due to the portability of the equipment and the flexibility of setting up the charts. 

Busy individuals might not have time to visit an optometrist at the stores for a complete examination. A home visit from a mobile optometrist conducts all checks for you without the need for you to travel. 

Eye examinations are recommended to be conducted annually to ensure a prescription is updated and comfortable for you. It is also necessary to screen for eye health conditions that can be picked up through eye examinations and best detected as early as possible.
