You can now get a free eye test at Dolland & Aitchison by purchasing Aprils edition of Prima magazine. The only cost involved is buying Prima usually £2.50, however if you purchase it in Morrisons it is only £1.50. The T&Cs are:-

1. Valid until 30th August 2008
2. Special offer available at any branch of D&A
3. Voucher can not be used with any NHS voucher
4. cash redemption value of voucher is 0.00001p
5. Only one voucher per order which must be surrendered at time of purchase
6 . Photocopies will not be accepted

You do not have to purchase your glasses from D&A and they have to provide you with the prescription if you request it, you can then use the prescription to purchase your glasses at a fraction of the cost on the web, there re quite a few companies offering huge savings over the High Street stores.

This worries me as I think they would be more likely to say you need glasses even if you don't so that they can make money out of you.

if it worries you dont inform them them that you have a free eye test voucher, there is nothing within the terms that state you have to provide the voucher prior to the eye test. just hand it over when the eye test has been completed when they ask for payment.Theres no way they would stitch you up, they are professional and cant get away with writing up a false prescription just so you purchase glasses.

Plus you are under no obligation to buy anything

Well done. My mate was wanting an eye test but couldn't afford the £20 charge.

Even then, you can walk away :)

I was looking at eye test prices as I haven't had one for 2 1/2 years and i'm about to get contacts lenses, the cheapest on the high street was Specsavers @ £17, so cheers OP! :thinking:

I looked into this and similar deals last year. They seem a lot harder to walk out of than the spectacle sales pitch that follows the free eye check.

They say, correctly, that you need to try wearing lenses for an extended period to see if you (and your eyes) can live with them.

Before you leave with your trial pack, you need to sign Direct Debits, which in some opticians' terms, cannot be cancelled for a year without a penalty.

If you decide you can't adjust, the DD is cancelled, no fees payable.

If you decide you like contacts, you won't be allowed to take your contacts prescription away as you can with the 'speccy' one. That way they are paid for their services and aftercare and the use of the trial lenses (though manufacturers supply them to opticians free).

That does stop you going off to get contacts for a fraction of their prices - for the first year anyway. As any web supplier is supposed to see your prescription before selling to you.

To buy them on the net.

I guess if anyone was worried about a misrepresentation advising they should buy glasses - then visit two opticians to see if the prescription is the same.

Then buy them online using the prescription. :whistling::p:w00t:

I work at an opticians, and certainly at the one I work for if you dont sign up onto Direct debits for lenses you will pay for the opticians time as otherwise they would be doing an hours work for nothing if you trot off and order your lenses online with the prescription they have supplied.
I dont think that is unreasonable.
And the contact lense appt at our place is £20 and I think thats more than acceptable for an hour with a professional optician.
Were not trying to rip people off.

:thumbsup: Good deal on the voucher by the way
#21
I used a D&A free eye test voucher last week. I had not had an eye test in 4 years and they knew I had a voucher before the test began. They said there was only a slight change and when i requested a copy of the prescription there was no problem, and i saved £27.50 on the cost of the eye test. So if anyone is thinking about doing this then go for it! :roll:
#22
I've just purchased a copy of the mag, it was in a sealed plastic sleeve, have looked twice but can't find the voucher.

Can you tell me what page did you find it on?
#23
great deal, but i could not read the small print ;)
#24
I got a Voucher for a free D&A eye test in with my necter vouchers a couple days back.
Might be worth checking if you've received anything from necter recently
#25
Wife used the Nectar Vouchers last time and got Free eye test - there was no hard sell on D&A's part - so would recommend the Nectar route you get 500 points as well - sweet
#26
Pleased to see some good reports on D&A. I've heard lots of people in the past complain about poor service and general lack of interest in customers. Maybe it's all changed?
#27
Eye tests are free on the NHS.... voucher or not.:)

*Massive laughs from audience*

Cheers OP! I need an eye-test.

thanks for this cuzzy. its exactly what i wanted. i was sent one in the post before by nectar but it expired. rep added.

I think 500 nectar points is worth £2.50 in argos vouchers. So, you get a free eye test and £2.50 to spend in argos, excellent!

If someone does want to purchase specs from D & A then here is the free test and 30% off glasses vouchers.
