Only at the larger stores, so this will probably be more convenient
#3
usually get free through Nectar, not all the time but they do sometime run this offer
#4
Eye Tests are free certainly in Scotland, unless a non NHS one?
#5

Word of warning about Tesco eye test, I hear reports that their test is crap, don't do all the tests and a friend of mine has had to go to another provider for a proper test. Just beware FREE is not always best!
#8
if you work with computer screens, you are legally entitled to a free one by your employer.

just get in touch with HR and they'll give you a voucher.

Hot price if you can't get it free.

thanks - ordered
#10
Has anyone used D+A before? Was wondering if this would be a full test?
#11
If you are over 60 they are free in England. I made mistake by going a few days before my birthday recently. Grave error!
#12
I had a D+A test recently and it was the full test apart from that particular branch couldn't take a picture of the eyes (extra £10). On asking the pics are only kept at the local branch so not as much use as it could be, as branches likely to close or move and you are likely to get tests elsewhere in future. You should be able to keep a copy for other opticians to use later if required.

Companies are supposed to pay for a full eye test but Royal Mail will only pay up to approx £18 and that has only gone up by £1 in 5 years as far as I could see.
Many opticians charge £27-£37 from the quotes I got so this is about the only optician you can use.
#13
It is only a bargain if they give you your prescription written down to take away without trying to make you feel like a cheapskate..............

It's a legal requirement that they give you your prescription
#16
I didn't mean for it to include the behind the eye photos, but I meant a full eye test and not a cut short one for a fiver.
#17
FREE AT TESCOS

nope they would not be allowed to do that anyway
#19
Voucher has been ordered then.
#20
tesco optometrist are very good but their other staff have very poor knowledge
#21
why pay anything when you can have one at Tesco for FREE!!!!!

out of interest where is cheapest for a contact lens annual check-up as i'm over due one...
#22
You could just say you have a family history of Glaucoma and get a free eye test at any optician
#23
I don't ever remember paying for an eye test. Dolland & Aitchison (now Boots) actually gave me a voucher for a free eye test because I didn't have one. Go figure.

My local privately owned place didn't charge me the other month.
#24
Also never paid for my annual contact lens check-ups lol Am I missing something here? Or rather is everybody else??

The only reason they do that is because an eye test should cost £50 and they try to make you buy specs to cover the cost and then some, so when you dont as you know they get pushy, especially specsavers as most are franchises, but just say give my prescription please, they can not contest it even for a second and just walk out.
#27
how much is their usual price range for decent glasses if i do buy it from them...im sure lots of people will decide to get eyes tested but buy online but id rather spend few quid more and get everything checked up and fit for my use right there in the shop rather than ordering dodgy online specs,or lenses

You generally get charged much more in a high street store due to them having to cover the cost of the eye test,
i would check out online retailers who are well established truth be told but instore somewhere like specsavers will try to squirm every penny out of your pocket
try boots for some good pairs
#29
free at specsavers

My dg had eye test at tesco and they were superb. It was free as she's a child. I am due an eye test just for check up, will have to check if it's free for me too at my local tesco.....
#31
If the store does eye tests then it's free for everyone - http://www.tescoopticians.com/default.aspx

many thanks just ordered for me and the gaffer.

You have to be over 40+ and either a sibling of a glaucoma sufferer or a parent or child of a glaucoma sufferer.
Be aware that when you sign the NHS form, the form is then sent to the local PCT (primary care trust). You've signed a declaration on a government form and I have known patients to be fined afterwards for this fraud.

Defrauding the NHS is not something to brag about.

Not all of them. They are a franchise so will vary store to store.

Although Specsavers do free fundus photography included in their sight test price. Just ask if you could save the pics onto a key drive and they will likely do it for you.

The Directors for each store can decide what value Sight tests are offered on their recall letters. Our store offers £7.50 sight tests with our recall letters.
However, although your letter is for a specific store, the majority of specsavers would accept it to get your custom.

Anyone know if you can use this for a contact lense sight check? Thinking of getting some for hols.

Unfortunately not, they charge around £28 for it

The cheapest place I've found is Asda who charge £15 and give subsequent tests free (if you order contact lenses from them)
