Is this also applicable to contact lens check?

I've made my appointment for 11.55am at a nearby D&A and have included a Contact Lens test/fitting thingy. I mentioned I had a voucher and they just said to bring it with me - no mention of any other charge, so I will let you know.

dont forget its free in Scotland,

Tesco do it for free regardless of wether you are on any NHS entitlement or not

I am new with the eye test. Basically we go for an eye test once the test has been done, we have to buy glasses from them?

nice

You do not have to buy from the optician's doing the test.
They should issue you with a prescription which can be dispensed elsewhere.

Good for those without a Tesco Opticians near them, or who just prefer D&A/Boots.
Heated.

Don't Tesco do them for free?

If you have a Nectar card and registered it online,then there might be a voucher in your bonus voucher section for Vision Express,for a free test plus 2000 pts and £30 off glasses.

Had mine done at Tesco for free yesterday, really professional, very pleased with the service - no hard sell either!

Just got mine tested at Boots the other day. :\

no, just eye test.

but they do a free trial lens check..
just be sure to say that you have never tried them before / that you dont wear them either.
it will also in turn make you eligible for the the free trial they usually have

So get your eye test then go else where if you need glasses, as I find D&A rather expensive.
Better off at Specsavers for example, esp if you want more than one pair.

Also free for the over 60's in England

I have always used Boots but the last time I went I wasn't impressed with the eye test or the hard sell on glasses afterwards so will be trying Tesco next time I think.

As others have said, free in Tesco and glasses come with scratch-resistant coating as standard and frames are good price too.

Free in ANY optitions in Scotland

No, you'll need the prescription and you can take to another opticians if you want. I noticed the specsavers cheaper

Excellent for those (like me) with no Tesco Opticians anywhere nearby. Thanks.

Brilliant thanks for the heads up

no thanks, free in bonnie Scotland!

Opticians!!!

often free in other places too

Why vote cold??

some folk may not have a Tesco local to them and the cost of a taxi/bus/train to get to a free eye test at a Tesco could end up more than a fiver one at Boots/D&a

Hot from me, need to book one asap

Make sure they give you your PD (pupillary distance) if you plan on filling the prescription online. They may not like it as they know that means you probably won't be buying with them, but that's their prob.

And they'll charge for this. They don't work for nothing.

They're not required to give you your PD, as this measurement is only used for dispensing glasses, so in fact it's not really their problem!

I have bought prescription glasses online before and wasn't asked/didn't need to enter PD. For future reference prescriptions can't be read over the phone - you'll have to collect it in person/mailed to you.

I'd be wary of the quality of glasses bought from a place that doesn't require a basic measurement - if you're seeing well with them and aren't getting headaches though you might have gotten lucky! An incorrect PD can cause lots of problems as you wouldn''t be looking through the centre of the lens.

Thats what i was thinking but had a worry that it may have changed.

Cheers for the reminder

Hot! As mentioned, over 60's in England are entitled to free eye tests.

Also check your employer, as anyone who regularly uses a computer monitor/VDU for work is often entitled to a free eye test too (and in some cases free or discounted glasses).

the voucher says it expires december 30 2010?

the voucher says it expires december 30 2010?

I printed out the voucher expiring 31/3/2011 but the expiry date did not print and they charged me the full £20. They said the voucher was no longer valid. Any body have a similar experience?

Just had mine and it was rubbish. Worst eye test ever. I begrudge even paying £5 for it.

She went through it so fast, and at the end I asked about a stigmatism being on the prescription (I've had problems with this being prescribed before and it making me unable to focus properly) and I was told to 'lump it' basically.

Waste of £5. I'm going down to an independent opticians to get it done properly.

So was that at Boots or D&A, or are they essentially run the same company now?

Last time I had mine checked at D&A it was pretty thorough I thought, but this may have changed now.....

Anyone know what the deal is with getting a contact lens test at Tesco's, do they charge for this?

Anyone tried ASDA, they used to offer free eye tests....
