I may be reading this in-correctly, but the T&C's seem to suggest the free eye test is only free if you subsequently make a purchase otherwise it costs £30. (I am guessing the PDF voucher it mentions is for the £30 off the £100 spent on frames).

OE
In England, Wales and Northern Ireland an eye test is free with purchase (excluding outright purchases of contact lenses) and £30 without purchase. In Scotland, eye tests are provided free by the NHS to all eligible patients. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland you may qualify for a free eye test as part of your NHS Entitlement. You will receive a PDF barcode voucher by email which you must bring with you to your appointment to receive this exclusive discount. Appointments are subject to availability. £30 off purchase discount can only be used against a purchase of complete glasses (frame and lenses) costing £100 or more. This offer expires on 31st December 2015.

Optical Express just pester you like mad if you do this by post and even more annoying by phone. My girlfriend has asked them to stop calling her numerous times and they still do. Avoid and use Specsavers or Tescos.
could not agree more. worse than a dog with a bone once they have got your details.

You are correct OP.

I believe Specsavers randomly has this as free too at times?. :-)
Won't they just tell you that you have crap eyesight, so you have to buy specs?

Don't go to optical express in croydon - I went with a free voucher for an eye test and they treated me like dirt and then gave me the wrong prescription. I will never go to them again !

If you feel that you had a poor eye test or was actually handed the wrong prescription then you can complain to the optician in store, however if the problem is still not resolved then you can complain to the Optical Consumer Complaints Service. Google occs for their website.
they called me the next day for an appointment, booked in.

went to my nearest branch, did tests (there's also a computer questionaire, with details eg home/next of kin/contact) & towards the end, i was asked for £30 for the test so showed the email confirming the voucher/appointment on my phone. enquiring about lens cost, i was advised about £100 + frame cost. they then email you an iScan test results (with prescription) the same day, so fairly painless.

Then comes the hard sell after the eye test.
Probably true for all Opticians as the professional fee is contained within glasses sales rather than actually paying the proper price for an eye examination. Without actually selling glasses those shops would shut down.
For something as important as your sight it's probably better to choose an Optician based quality of the eye exam rather than it's price....which is why independent Opticians often come out on top over production line massive franchise stores.

I had mine done with these a year and half ago, same price. So happy I did it aswel, customer service excellent, only downfall is instill get dry eyes are on the odd occasions in the morning. But I can get as many eye drops I want for life. Its much better than changing contacts everyday. I guess you just need to ask yourself, is it right for you before you go ahead.
Hi hun,
Just wondering if you still have your free drops?
I had my surgery 4 years ago and was told I had free lifetime aftercare, well my surgery has reversed so I called to make an appointment for them to check them and I was told I had to pay £50!!!!????

Hi.

Yea sure, will have a search for you now.

I had my surgery just over 3 years ago. 1st may to be exact.

I popped in to my optical express 6 months ago and was told the same thing! I explained they told me it was eye care for life including free eye tests... to be told it was only while im signed on with them. Once your signed off as all treatement has worked. Thats it! Not a nice feeling as it's your eye's and promised free eye care for life!

Had mine done 5 times now oO with optical express, the vision is good. But the customer services is the worst I have ever come across with any company!

5 times??!! How come?

My eye sight kept deteriorating each time and when I asked why they said they purposely under treat patients... no one ever told me that though, if I had known when I started this 7 years ago I probably wouldn't have bothered! My latest surgery was February this year, so now hoping this one works!

One laser optomotrist told me if I had it done again I would go blind, then a few months later referred me to have the surgery for the fifth time, I bought this up with the surgeons team and they were disgusted that someone would say that to me as it wasn't true (obviously there is always a risk) but for someone who had already gone through the procedure 4 times at this point it was scary!

I'm not sure I have ever seen the same optician/optomostrist twice either, their staff turnover is so high, when we discussed this with a member of the reception staff they told us that the company was horrible to work for and they were looking for a new job at the time and gave me contact details for people in head office to complain!

Its a shame as I am pleased with my vision now, just annoyed I've had so much trouble with the company along the way, I've had so much trouble with their customer services and have gone as high up as the MDs right hand man.

Well you guys were right! After completing my eye test, i presented them with my voucher. Then they said i needed to pay for the eye test or purchase some glasses and the eye test would be free. I refused, spoke with the manager who reluctantly agreed to give me a copy of my prescription. Ridiculous
They must under all circumstances give your prescription at the end of the sight test.

Those affected please research this further with the regulator/tions.
They were excellent for meand didnt even bother to check the voucher which i was supposed to take with me but left at home.

warning - i took the eye test on their london branch. took 2 hours out of which I was waiting for 1 hours and 10 minutes. the person who took the initial test was tired, disinterested, very fast and looked very unwell. the optician was chirpy and nice.

but in the end - they tried not to give me the prescription saying that the optician was on a long break. on protesting, they gave me a prescription.

but the height was that MY PRESCRIPTION WAS WRONG. I cannot believe that my eyesight has suddenly become so weak and the number has jumped up to -4.50 just suddenly. The prescription is no way correct. I am going to take a retest now with another provider.

It was a plain waste of time, a complete waste.
Boots (D & A) eye tests are just £5 with the voucher from the bags they give out at the pharmacy with prescriptions. No need to get a prescription filled there, just ask the pharmacist for one of the paper bags, for the eye test voucher.
Optician was fine and got my presciption, which is the most important outcome, but receptionist was poor - perhaps there were no other applicants for the job.

My details were forwarded to various companies for spam too.
Optical Express are poor. Really bad customer service, didn't even tell me store had closed and relocated elsewhere.

Went to Vision Express instead. 25 minute examination (compared to 5) and half price eye test voucher on website if you sign up which means it cist £12.50
I went to them at December 2013, after eye test they refused me to give prescription. They asked me to pay them for prescription copy. And guy on the desk was just out of manner person. Not recommended at all. In advertise they say free eye test but after test they demand 15 pounds for test. what a nightmare. ignore them if you want free eye test. If I need to pay 15 pounds then word free lose its weight. miss-selling product.

Ok for a start are eye tests not free anyway? And also optical express and vision express are NOT run by the "same parent company".
I remember seeing this morning either TCB or quidco there is £5 cashback for an eye test booking.

If you have a Nectar card - check you online offers. I have an offer for Vision Express, free eye test, £20 off purchase + 3000 Nectar points (£15 worth). Offer expires 17th Jan.

You will find Optical Express and Vision Express are owned by the same parent company.

The expiry date is June 2014 on the voucher. The one in Google is out of date when I last checked, also I have earned the cashback so it's simply just a link.
when i printed the voucher out it said 2013. just search google for free eye test and it'll come up there, no need to put any money through this guy's topcashback.

they never pay out...

I've had the test, and the cashback - I was a bit shocked, as I forgot to take the booking info with me, but the receptionist booked me in, and ensured the code was there. It was a a real shock, as I've missed out on tons of cashback.

I didn't intend to buy from them, I merely wanted to see how my eyes were - the optician was friendly, and took a good 15 minutes, chatting as well.

My past experience in terms of sight tests with Optical Express left me with the opinion that if the test they gave me was free, it would still be poor value.

Can't be worse than Specsavers for eye tests.

Had my eye test, Optician tells me that she noticed that my pupils didn't open smoothly (would close up a bit after opening) and was booking me a hospital appointment.

Being the idiot I am, I looked up to see what it was I'd need testing for. Apparently it's a sign of having a brain tumour.

Get myself scared, go to the hospital, doctor sees me, spends a couple of minutes looking at my eyes. Tells me that pupils behaving like mine were is perfectly normal in young people and he seemed pretty annoyed at the optician.

tldr: that was a few years ago, I need to get my eyes tested again, deal's handy, heat added.

Am eye missing something, apart from losing £15?

Is it a case of you must go through Topcashback to get the free eye test?
Is there something on the optical express website eye have missed?

Or am eye making a spectacle of myself?
I have no idea why this has been expired. Optical express gives you This Voucher for a free eye test.

I signed up on the 5th April, and tracked pretty much immediately. Was phoned this morning to arrange an appointment (after missing a call yesterday), and was offered one in the middle of April. Upon asking, they stated the test would be free provided I brought the voucher along with me.

Further more, this is marked as New on the Topcashback page, and as I check the freebie section on a daily basis, know that it had just been posted. I suspect due to its newness, Optical Express are yet to update the expiry of their voucher.

Please unexpire.

Edit: Personally I don't care about the validity of the voucher, as all I'm interested in is the cashback (_;) Know it pays, as last year they had a similar offer (I recall £4 cashback?) didn't attend an appointment, and it still confirmed/paid.

I once entered a competition to win free laser eye surgery from these people. About 5 minutes later the phone started ringing and I got all the speal about expressing an interest in having eye surgery etc. etc. and after that I would get calls and emails daily from them.

This is my personal experience only, but I've found Optical Express to have THE worst customer service ever.
Mobile/email spam tactics, 'trainee' opticians for eye tests, extremely poor after sales plus lack of knowledge and experience from the sales people.
I ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses, disappointed with the outcome, had to have them back with no change and to top it off, one of the staff scratched the paintwork and told me to draw it back on with a marker pen!
Worn glasses for most of my life and will avoid optical express from now on.

Thanx!!!
You very much welcome.
do what most people do free eye exam and buy your specs from Tesco or few cheap once on line sellers.....some are as low as £10 per pair.:{

Some people prefer designer specs though which cost much more than £10 ;)
those people would not be looking here for bargains !!
