I love this.

OH is ALWAYS nagging me about producing my Nectar card, (Can't be bothered most of the time) and she had her eyes tested for free at D&A on Thursday.

Just printed this out and cant wait to put it under her nose.:):):)

Thanks for that.

EDIT: Wouldn't have mattered tho, just noticed that they only give you the points when making a purchase and she will be buying her specs from one of the many on-line shops.

Oh well. it'll pi$$ her off for a while. :)

Eye tests are free in Scotland (NHS Scotland pays the Optician £36.00 for everyone every two years) anyways so does this apply up here with the points?
#5
does this apply with existing customers??

rizla, i never actually thought about buying specs online... as it's difficult to find a pair that fits well.. do they do refunds etc? can u recomment a good online store please? :thumbsup:

I'd be a bit wary of a "free eye test." Basically, they want to sell you a pair of glasses, which is where the real money is.

I had my eyes tested at a place 7 years ago and they told me I needed my first pair of glasses which I bought off them for £250. I've had about 3 or 4 eye tests since elsewhere and each time they've told me that i've got 20/20 vision and don't need glasses. ;-)

Almost no one has completely perfect eye sight, so it can always be improved a bit - even if it's negligible.

Maybe at the time I should've got a second opinion.

D'oh I had an eye test yesterday at specsavers and paid a tenner

If you go for the 'free eye test' they will then give you the hard sell and try to force you to buy glasses you can't afford, and then they make it difficult for you to get a copy of the eyetest if you don't buy the glasses.

My bendable frame glasses cost me £15 online, they are brill. An Eyetest cost me £10 from specsavers (with a coupon out the post). Although I had to push hard to get a copy of my prescription from them!

Thats because the cost of a sight test doesn't cover costs of premises, wages, equipment and other business operation costs.

nice! I'm thinking of ordering new contacts so this is comming along at just the right time.
#12
Hint!
Make your appointment at lunchtime and when the test is over and they 'Sit you down' explain that you have to get back from lunch and that you will pop in later.

That should save you a wasted 3/4 of an hour.

Great deal - thanks for this. Have used these vouchers in the past in the Lakeside (Thurrock, Essex) branch without problem. :)

Ah, D&A up to their usual marketing again!!
Remember the following groups are eligible for "free" eye exams.
1) Under 16s and under 19's in full time educ.
2) Income support
3) Possession of HC2
4) Family history (1st degree relative) of glaucoma
5) diabetics

Remember there is NO such thing as a free lunch. You get what you pay for and if you really want value as the following.

1) Do you take photographs of the back of my eye?
2) Do you do a visual fields examination for glaucoma?
3) I want the better test for glaucoma (the blue light and yellow dye test NOT the "air puff"

There is always a catch somewhere and this is a loss leader to get you in the shop to sell you a pair of specs/sunspecs as, due to the stupidity of the NHS payments system whch is historis and dates to 1948!!, the money is in the specs - after all you have to get the money in the practice to pay the professional for his/her expert advice some way and the easiest way to do this is to load up the specs with the fees. Simple economics really!

I would just like to say D&H have been very professional in dealing with me previously, using a free voucher too. I do wear glasses and they did the test and told me I was ok and didn't need a new prescription. I did need reading glasses (and I knew it!), but they asked if I wanted to choose some frames there and then, or have a think about it. They presented my prescription in a cardboard wallet without being asked.

The frames have to be competetively prices, so loading them up with additional fees may not be a sensible business model.

You can always use the free test as a 'second opinion'.

Does anyone know if I can get a contact lense checkup with this voucher?
Thanks

I paid for a 1/2 price test at Specsavers recently whom gave me quite a thorough eye examination & recommended I buy Varifocals because I have a lazy eye which often becomes tired before the other! I've never had varifocals so with some doubt in my mind & the fact I tend to take my glasses off anyway I then duly booked a D&A free eye test a few months ago where I got the same decent (if not better) eye test where they did not recommend varifocals.

While I was there they cleaned my glasses & tightened the frames all for jack ****. They did not pressurise me into a new set as they had acknowledged they kept me longer than expected.

Needless to say I'm happy with the outcome & experience.

I went for a free eye test last year at D&A (using voucher), was told I did not need glasses atall, eventhough at the time I really wanted some funky frames... felt gutted lol

I used to get free eye tests on the nhs for being in full time education, but every time I went for a test they said that everything was pretty much perfect, so I didn't bother going any more.

And of course now, just to annoy me, I turned 19 a month ago ao I no longer get free tests and I'm noticing that I'm squinting at everything a bit too much.

So I'm guessing even though I'm going to have to pay for it, can someone tell me how much is a normal price for an eye test, and to make sure I'm getting tested for everything I need to be. (I get the feeling that if I claim this free eye test and I don't know what I'm being tested for then I'll get a half-arsed eye test)

I think the nector points are added only when you book order with them to buy glasses or something. I do not think they would give the nector points for doing a free eye test :?
