I have been wanting an eye test for ages, but haven't wanted to pay for one, so this will do nicely. Heat Added. :thinking:
#2
be warned - my dad got his eyes tested with tesco using this offer before christmas and when he got new glasses at specsavers (using said prescription) it turned out tesco gave him an incorrect prescription. thankfully specsavers offered a new eye test and he can now see properly!

Wrong wrong wrong.

Eye tests are only free if you are under 18, or if you or over 40 and have a family member who had or has glaucoma or catteracts.

Otherwise an eye test can cost you up to around £40

I have had an eye test at Tescos (they were giving them away since they opened up a new opticians in our local store) and it was absolutely fine.

Specsavers are (locally) the absolutely terrible for customer service.

I would get a free eye test and then go to your local opticians to get a deal.

Eye tests are free for children up to 16, UNLESS they stay on for further education til 18. I know this because my daughter still gets free eye tests and she is 16, doing A levels. However, none of the kids FREE specs fitted her and she needed to pay for adult ones (with the NHS voucher). My hubby (45) gets free eye test sbecause his mother has glaucoma. By the way it has to an immediate family member (Mother, father etc)

Others who get free eye tests are those on certain benefits (i.e. income support) and OAPs.

Come to Scotland, we get them free everywhere \0/

Quite right. Eyetests are not universally FREE. There are exceptions if your unemployrd, low income, age etc.

This is definitely good :thumbsup:

No Tesco's around here have an opticians in them unfortunately.

How many Tesco stores have opticians in them? In the few I've been in up and down the country, I've never seen one in there to be honest.

Or you work for a company that either pays or contributes, or are in receipt of certain benefits.

Not true actually. You need to be on Income Based Job Seekers Allowance to obtain any benefits. If you're on Contribution Based Jobseekers Allowance you get nadda! Nothing! Not even a penny!

Voted hot though and my local Tesco has an opticians which is always empty!

Sainsburys sent me a Nectar coupon (yesterday) for a Free eye Test at D & A plus 100 bonus points. Plus you get 2000 points when you buy a pair of glasses from them, not sure if it's a general circular or restricted to certain locations.

T & C say hand coupon and nectar card to D & A to get free eye test. Offer not transferable. only original coupons will be accepted.

You never know if you've got a nectar card, there might be one on it's way to you

I've not had an eye test for about 15 years. Since I was at school. And even that wasn't a proper test, just the old wooden spoon over the eye thing.

What would a test involve? If it's just reading stuff off a sign then I can leave that but I'd quite like to have a proper eye test to see if I have 20/20 vision. Assuming there is such an eye test? Never been to an opticians.

But isnt that the whole point of an eye test i.e. u know that they'll tell u your eyes need glasses whether u need them or not in order to get a sale?

you muppet

This site seems to attract muppets - you have to wade through inane comments to sort out some cracking deals.
Eye tests are not a precise science and also dependent on what you tell the optician. They usually sort you out if you have a problem though.

Well Specsavers got my eyetest wrong which caused no end of hassle with my Internet Glasses supplier, who specsavers blamed for the supplying glasses which did not match their prescription. However after a test of my eyes and a check of the glasses at D&A I went back to Specsavers and they did it properly this time and then had to replace all the glasses I had bought over the internet (at a fraction of Specsaver's prices). So it worked out fine in the end. My contact lenses from specsavers are nearly run out so will check Tesco and D&A out this time round.

Hot deal if you are not lucky enough to live in Scotland :p

Yeah I bet dealing with a Tesco Optician is really scary business.

Polish bloke goes into Tesco for an eye test:

"Can you read the third line down?" says the optician.
"Read it?!" says the Pole, "I know the bloke!"

No comments about racism please - it's a harmless joke!
#24
are they offering 200 free clubcard points still?
#25
i went to spectsaver 2 times and they told me to go back when i was in a better mood as both tests was different and my normal glasses i could not see in front and they said i had to go back for another test.i never bothered so im changing to somewhere else
#26
Just to put my pennies worth in.

The true cost of providing your average 20-30min eye exam including visual screening, pressures etc is around £40-50.

Most Opticians offer exams actually at a loss - usually around the £20 unless other promotions.
This stems back to the origins of the industry where heavy cross subsidy from the sale of spectacles kept the business afloat. Now we have the multiple chains driving down the cost of spectacles to an extent that the volume of sales is becoming the more important factor.

The reality is if the people who scream spectacles are over priced want them cheaper then they should be prepared to pay for the service appropriately.
#27
i must needa eye test as i cant even read the voucher! lol
#28
I had an eye test at Tesco last month - spot on, spent £140 for 2 pairs of specs and were very good quality, 1 went straight back for an adjustment. Good service and my brother said they were excellent as well, he is an ex-specsavers optican

all eye tests involve a lot more than just checking your vision. they will also be able to pick up on things like diabetes, glaucoma, high blood pressure etc- it's more like an MOT!!

if you have an asda opticians near by , they may offer to match the offer- i know my local one does.
#31
Voted hot but dont have a tesco nearby. :x

As an alternative you can get a sight test at half price from D&A, costing you £13.75 instead of the usual & 27.50. Register your details online to get vouchers emailed to you: http://www.danda.co.uk/internal-spr08-het-10peog/ ;-)
#32
Great find, just what I have been waiting for!
#33
This is bogus, you should read the voucher, it says not valid for a NHS Test, which I assume, has some standards imposed (an eye test is more than just sight reading). This test is probably for MAB or far sighted people as stated on their site.

I was lucky enough to do some mysteryshopping a few years ago, and I got loads of eye test visits to do in the space of 2 months. In 2 months I had 7 tests - none were the same! They all had different results and varied hugely so I'm never convinced that my eye tests are correct these days. I tend to trust my own judgement as far as sight goes, if its getting worse, my eyes have changed and I expect to be told I need a stronger prescription. If I'm not recommended a higher prescription I get them checked elsewhere just to be a bit surer. As for optical health, well I can't do anything about that and have to leave that in the hands of the `professionals'. Worrying, isn't it?

it makes me laugh when these free eye test offers come up.

i've worked in opticians for years now and for most brands at one stage or another. most (but not all) opticians are locums so they work in different stores each day - the guy i worked with today, is in specsavers tomorrow and asda on monday - he also works for tescos and an independent.

so chances are that tescos weren't to blame for a poor eye test - same for the specsavers one.

the average eye test on the high street costs £27 according to a recent report so free can't be scoffed at, and with glasses from £20 i think this is a very good offer - makes you wonder how good the cheap spex are though - but that goes for everywhere.

tesco have over 100 opticians now and they've been doing it for over 10 years - they opened about 50 of them this year making them the fastest growing opticians in the uk. it's got my bosses sweating a bit.

opticians are quality controlled to hell by the general optical council, the nhs and god knows how many governing bodies so i wouldn't worry too much about them making the glasses right - if you've got a problem - all opticians are bound by their nhs contract to fix it. by the way, online spectacles sellers don't have all the same restrictions - so you don't have the same comeback.

one more thing - vision express charge about £30 for an eye test but they run a guaranteed price match - it's part of the 'customer satisfaction charter', so if you take in this voucher to them they should honour it. they're actually mystery shopped on this.

hope this helps.

Cold votes are wrong if your a numpty! Its a free eye test, free! if the test has not been performed correctly you go back and complain ( If it were me I would also walk out with some vouchers)
Eye tests are performed by qualified opticians, and not only that all questions are answered by the testee, so if they make a mistake the test becomes contaminated by ignorance. Not as you seem to show, stupidity.

Heat added, going tomorrow, wish me luck for free vouchers.

Very good offer,


but has anyone read the small print ?
