Rose Optical Services

‘Rose Optical Services are dedicated specialist eye care providers to housebound people.’

The organization was established in 1962. The Chairman - Stuart Rose FCOptom FSMC realised that many people who most needed an eye test were those least able to visit a practice. He decided to take care of them. Almost half a century later, Rose Optical Services remains a family organization working with expert teams of optical professionals providing essential on-site eye care to housebound patients across the UK.’ (Taken from Rose Optical Services website: www.roseoptical.org)
