I wonder if anyone has had experience with this? Have you managed to get someone with dementia qualifying for a free home test? We mentioned it but the medics seemed to think that if someone can walk they can go to the optician. Try doing that with someone who gets lost, confused, angry and frightened in strange surroundings. Let alone taken to an optician who wants you to put your head into scary looking machinery and do complicated tests (just reading the eyechart would be bad enough!). I am thinking of using an outfit called The Outside Clinic who specialise in home tests, including free ones to people to are "entitled". Has anyone used them? Or do they know of anyone who could do home tests, possibly with opticians who are trained to deal with people with dementia? I know Dad would find the tests a lot less confusing and frightening if they could be done at home. I feel that going to a shop would be pointless and achieve nothing.
