Hi

Been to Tesco this afternoon and bought this deal, Prescription glasses and the eye test is free!!! £10 including the lenses!! The frames are a bit limited in range but look nice over all. I found plenty of online specs deals posted here so wanted to do an eye test to order one later on but today I paid only 10 pounds and got a free glasses as well. Good bargain.
Only downside is if you need anti-reflective coating you need to pay extra 30 quids, well I didn't order this.

had a test and bought a 2pairs for reading and seeing . Prescription they supplied was 'questionable'!! by another optician ,been advised to go back and question the info on the prescription
£10 specs i managed to wear for 15 minutes before the became so sore on the nose piece. The arms didnt reach my ears and they frames were bent when i received them . .Assistant couldnt give a damn when she realised i wanted a £10 pair of frames.Fitting them when the came back with lenses in was non existent. When I told her they felt really uncomfortable ,answer was to twist the legs and 'see how it goes'.Never again!!

This is a great offer, HOT from me as I bought 7 pairs and keep them all over the house, worked out a lot cheaper than buying one pair of specs.
#5
Is this offer displayed instore i.e £10 for glasses/lenses and eye test?

I agree - £10 is too cheap for it to be profitable. All they are trying to do is price the pros out of the market, when they are all gone the prices will go up, but the service won't!!

My eyes are too important to me to 'try out' this deal. I'd rather pay a bit more for a professional outfit.

agreed, my glasses were about £220 bought as a present in a sale about 10 years ago from boots, they are armani so you are paying for the name but they are mega light, semi rimless and comfortable - never had a prob with them either...most of the time you get what you pay for...i also wear contacts - from specsavers - they have just changed them and are now rubbish, so chaning them this week to prob acuvue

MAKE SURE YOU READ THE small print before buying!
#14


What a muppet - they asked for a link to tesco optician stores and you put a link to boots - do you work for them or something?

I've been with specsavers for many years now after a shocking experience with boots opticians (their prescription was 2 steps stronger than it should have been, it felt like I was on drugs while I was wearing them) - never again!! Mind you the service at specsavers isnt what it used to be so id be tempted to buy these as a cheap 2nd pair

Old deal but still hot.

Got mine and they're fine. If yours aren't just take them back. Decent retailers like tesco offer full money back guarantees but some people would rather come on here and moan.
#17
be wary, I am now going for a re-test as they miss-prescribed me and then argued the point. The optician said my stigmatism had "dissapeared" which is not the case. I have heard of similar stories of miss-prescription!
#18
Specs do costs about £10 in reality. All Tesco is doing is pricing at or near cost.

For far too long opticians have fleeced the consumer. Opticians make their money form selling specs. They have sales targets to meet - how can they meet these targets if your prescription has not changed? So they say they change your prescription ever so slightly so it encourages you to buy a new pair.

This happened to me 4 years in a row until I had enough. One of my friends qualified as an optician and told me the pressure he was under to meet largest at a major high street optician.

The guy who say my eyes are worth more than £10 is just scaremongering. Tesco would never sell inappropriate specs as it would damage their reputation and I would trust Tesco above the high street retailers.

All joking aside. I think £10 is worth a stab. Don't like em' bin em' (it's only a tenner)

Tick the optician box below postcode...


I can't see anywhere on the site where it says free eyetest...:thinking:
#23
Can anyone confirm if the offer includes a free eye test
#24
I think it must be down to local store policy but the ones I frequent seem to be offering it pretty much all the time. Solihull (Monkspath) for one if that's helpful.
#25
Just been to tesco westwood cross and can confirm at the moment eye test is free
#26
Polish guy goes for an eye test at Tesco:

"Can you read the third line down" says the optician.

"Read it" he replies, "I know the bloke!"

Apologies in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#27
If you need a spare glasses or want to order one from the internet it is a good deal, if you want to spend more you can go to another (and I doubt if better) optician. As johnnie mentioned if you don't like em you can always take them back.
Forgot to mention double club card points too!!!!
#28
If I have done this correctly, it should be a FREE EYE TEST COUPON http://www.tesco.com/todayattesco/health/coupons/coupon-sight-test.pdf

The start of many questionable reviews of Tesco's Opticians, I too went at the beginning of the year complaining of headaches from being on computer all day, it was a free eye test and he knew it was my first ever test yet still was rattling through it and at the end said it wasn't worth me having specs, another month of painful headaches I decided to go to Vision Express, got glasses straight away and headaches went away, that kind of tells me the "value for money" I received at Tesco, could say it was free but it cost me more in pain and lost time at work having a duff test and advice.

What you're saying really depends on where you go for your sight test. I have worked for lots of different opticians and some do put pressure on patients to unneccesarily change their glasses due to the smallest of prescription changes. I have also seen prescriptions issued by Tesco's which are so low as to be difficult to justify clinically, so I doubt that Tesco's opticians are much differenent from anywhere else - some are probably good, some are probably not.

Wow - not sure I can believe what you are saying. I don't know how much specs cost, although £10 does not sound a lot... But I am sure as hell my car that I paid £10k for did not actually cost the manufacturer 1/3 what I paid to build. What I am also paying for is a service and their costs. For lighting and a building and for staff! These things are part of the business. So even if they do cost £10 then I expect to pay extra for the optom and the lighting and the staff etc etc. I don't mean £100's, but enough so they can stay in business and so I have had a good deal. Now all I see here is Tesco putting my local optom out of business, and they have been in my town for years and years and I would like them to stay. I think Tesco are just putting these out at a ridiculous price to kill off the competition and then they will raise the prices.

I do not work for my local optom by the way I work in Computers! :whistling:

Charming! :x

You've obviously either never heard of irony or you've had a sense of humour bypass, whichever, as name typing is your bag then I feel sorry for you and wish you a speedy recovery :thumbsup:

Maybe your local optician is a good one but the traditional private optician is overpriced and inefficient; one of the last high margin businesses left which offers poor value now that so many others have been 'found out'. Specsavers started the value trend; others (including Tesco) are simply getting on the bandwagon. It's now a competitive business, not a local monopoly. Similar things happen in Pharmacy but restrictive practices are still allowed there.

I'm sick of this tendency to knock every British success, like Tesco. It sems that ASDA gets away with it on here - because it's American?

I've just had a good eye test at Tesco and previously had a bad one at Specsavers. Such small samples prove nothing and if you don't like them just take them back - don't come on here moaning. I suspect Tesco are far less likely to quibble about a refund that your local one-off business.

You're right Spec savers did start it I suppose, and they're pretty much market leaders now. Just out of interest, what made the Tesco sight test good and the spec savers bad?

Tesco seemed thorough and knowledgeable and decided my 3 year old prescription hadn't changed (which was my feeling too). Specsavers previously gave me a prescription which was far too 'strong' and made me feel dizzy; no problem when I went back though and they changed it free without quibble. In neither case would I draw a conclusion about the company from one experience.

It isn't an exact science and the optician has to rely on what you tell them during the eye test.
