I usually go to Tesco for the free eye test but Specsavers is more convenient so had a look online for a discount code. Nothing came up but I discovered If you search on the website for your local store using the 'store locator' function then scroll to the bottom you will find a printable voucher! my local store offered a free eye test, my sisters local one offered a test for £7.50.

If you decide to purchase new specs when there don't forget NUS card holders get 25% off (not combinable with their 2for1 or free anti glare - or any other - offers)

I recently had a free test at specsavers. I'm afraid I was underwhelmed by the low tech approach. No photograph of the eye and an old photo copied grid for macula degeneration. If you want a comprehensive eye health check this isn't it. Perhaps I was unlucky... Biggleswade branch.

Unless you are prepared for the hard sell after the sight test followed by even harder 'up-selling', avoid these people like the plague. The shop we have here is like a cattle market. I have been there twice as we get free eye tests through work but I now choose to pay and go elsewhere
I got a free eye test with my £230 frames
Thanks I have been waiting for the free eye test voucher to come through the post but my local has the free voucher online which I never noticed before

Perhaps you should have gone to Specsavers and got your eyes tested?

Excellent service from Glasses Direct. Great value too especially when codes are issued via MSE.

Be warned the quality of glasses bought from some of those online retailers are woeful compared to a highstreet optician.

Do all stipulate what lenses they use? I know that Specsavers are a brick & mortar business with high overheads but worried that online retailers could be using sub-standard lenses.

I totally agree very aggressive sales assistant s.Went to Asda for my last glasses and had great service and definitely no hard sell.
I'm someone who doesn't particularly like hard selling, but I'm not afraid or saying no, no matter how awkward it is.

Whilst they "ask" and have a few optional extras even if you buy glasses from them, I just let them do their piece and say no. I've never felt hard pressure to go above the price of the glasses.

There's worse places for hard sales.

All branches are under their own little section though so service can vary massively from. SpecSavers to SpecSavers.

Had massively good service once when the Asda optician incorrectly filled out the prescription. They re-did the lenses even though it wasn't their fault.

The only way that they could offer such good prices would be to compromise on quality. Only the most basic lenses cost peanuts.
My mother suffered from diabetes, which entitles me to free eye test anywhere.
Take the script, say thanks and order your glass on line.
Can't see ( no pun intended ) how they can ever check up.
Feel a tad guilty when I say "no thanks, I'll just take the script", but 30 seconds later its all forgotten.

Family history of glaucoma (direct relative) entitles you to a free test if you're over 40, family history of diabetes doesn't. Someone at your opticians sounds a tad confused.
Specsavers is a franchise, so you get good ones and bad ones.

Free eye test at Bristol Bedminster btw.
You can also get a free trial for contact lenses at Specsavers:

"Free" you mean as we will pay for it somehow.

Paid for in taxes, just like the NHS and Social Security.
I have had a bad experience with Specsavers. They failed to diagnose a detached retina in my eye despite continually going to with sight problems. I was withing days of losing the sight all together when I decided to try out a local family run optician in my home town who noticed it straight away and got me up to hospital for an emergency operation.

We get free eye tests in Scotland (not sure if you do in E&W) but my experience has put me off all the bigger opticians.
£10 in Fleet and Farnborough. Boo!

I had one in Gorton, Manchester recently.

As soon as I said I wasn't buying frames the day of the eye test, the manager stopped talking mid sentence and walked away from me. Ignorant.

I won't be using Tesco's for eye care again. Free or otherwise.
Help ! Can't find the free eye test voucher on the Specsavers page ?
