Good deal for a sight test prescription, then go online and get a far cheaper pair than the High Street opticians who really know how to charge for glasses. Make sure the optician writes your PD (pupilary distance) readings on your prescription as well, he can't refuse to do it.

Loads of online opticians to choose from now.

Great advice mate cheers

Eye tests are free in Scotland

Just to correct the above. Your PD is NOT part of your prescription, it is a facial measurement that forms part of the dispensing process, an optometrist can ceretainly refuse to give you this, or might charge you for the privelege.

or go to tesco's and get an eye test for free and bogof on frames

I know it's not part of your prescription thats why I said; "Make sure the optician writes your PD (pupilary distance) readings on your prescription as well"....Just refuse to pay for your prescription or cause a very LOUD argument in the opticians which are usually full of customers...he will then soon give you the PD readings, come on Britain make a stand about RIP OFF BRITAIN...oh and opticians of course!

Well, shout as loud as you want in my place, and you still won't get your PD for free. If you refuse to pay for your examination, then you're on very shaky legal ground. I'm just telling it to you the way it is, what you do with the information is up to you, but misinformation helps no-one.

I think being on shaky ground is truly laughable! ... an optometrist trained as a lawyer,fascinating, it's been an education I think not........In life their are those who do, and those who don't...A decent optician would provide the PD reading FOC...got mine from Specsavers and had no problems but saved pounds by going online rather than wasting money and lining the pockets of the High Street opticians for the spectacles of my own choice.

I work in a high st opticians, we are all specifically briefed not to provide the PD measurement. It is not your priveledge, it is not part of the sight test and we legally do not need to provide it.As already said, if you're that bothered you can measure your own with the PD rule free above.



It's not about ripping people off, we refuse to measure it even for payment, its about such values as the PDs and OCs being completely different measurements and mere mortals such as yourself dont understand such things and can end up ordering the wrong specs and cause yourself a prismatic effect.

I also second Graybags who states you are on 'shaky legal ground' if you refuse to pay for services received. At no point does he state that he is a lawyer optometrist as you so childishly suggested. Our offices administrators always refer non payments to sundry debtors and bayliffs and we are never afraid to involve the police if patients try it on.

This site is about saving money, still plenty of online glass suppliers a lot cheaper than the high street, definately worth checking them out everyone. Just use the high street ones just for your prescription it seems to irritate them for some reason!

Tesco currently a have a number of offers running at once
buy one get one free on £65 or above
free transition lenses if a pair purchased is at £65 or above
free prescription sunglasses on second pair if first one is purchased at £65 or above
free eye test no purchase necasary.
As for D&A (part of boots now) they are very expensive for lenses.
By the way Asda as a complete package are the cheapest

Yes, the opticians are paid by Holyrood to do the eye test. But still charge the same price for glasses as they do in England - try asking for £5 off the glasses. Or in Tesco (who don't charge for eye tests in England - they absorb the cost into the glasses) ask why they're being paid to carry out your eye test twice!
