Eye tests are free to everyone (well they are here in Scoltand anyway). You wont need anything with you. Phone them and ask and they will tell you.

You need a excemption certificate. You can pick it up from your local post office. You also get free medicines with this

It's under 19 not 18 for free eye test: http://specsavers.co.uk/glasses/nhs/.

Anyways Tesco have them free for everyone.

D&A free test with voucher offer only until 15 March, so act fast.

England. If you are a student and over 18, you HAVE to fill in a HC form. Then you MIGHT get free eye / dental care, depends on income / outgoings.

It doesn't say 'upto' 18. So I think if your 18 years and 364 days old you would still qualify for the free eye test.:thumbsup:

I work for Specsavers and the NHS entitlement is - you have to be UNDER 19 i.e 18 and 364 days in full time education. You can however, get a student discount of 25% off of complete total from ranges over £75.00 which has nothing to do with NHS.
