If you have an Eye hospital near you (ring your local hospital and ask them) then you should be able to go in as an Out Patient to have your sight checked.

If you work with VDU's then your employer has an obligation to provide a free sight test

The cost of an eye test

If you answer 'yes' to any of these questions you are entitled to NHS free eye tests.

* Are you aged 60 or over?
* Are you under 16, or under 19 and in full time education?
* Do you live in Scotland?
* Do you or your partner receive income support, family credit, income based job seekers allowance, pension credit guarantee, and are entitled to or named on a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate, or are named on valid HC2 certificate?
* Do you have diabetes or glaucoma?
* Are you 40 or over and have a close relative with glaucoma?
* Does a hospital ophthalmologist say you are at risk of glaucoma?
* Are you registered blind or partially sighted?
* Are you entitled to vouchers for complex lenses?


You get it for free as your still at school.
