What a laughable comment. Theres no need to act like a "know it all" and scare monger like that. GPs cannot refract first of all and secondly, many of them do not have the resources in their office to manage eye conditions. Many GPs refer to the Optometrist if their patients turn up with eye symptoms. Next time you have an eye complaint, by all means go see your GP, chances are you'll be told to go see the Optometrist. Blurred vision, headaches, red eyes, pain in/around eyes are all complaint GPs hear about and subsequently refer to an Optometrist.
An eye exam is not just about specs. That's only a small part of it. Most of the appointment is regarding eye health. They are not fancy spec sales people. Retail optical practices have maybe given the public this image, however it is important to understand the role an Optometrist has within the eye exam.
Sorry, can't see it myself!
They have to give you your prescription, you don’t have to buy from them. Just get the eye test.

Some of the stores will require a purchase of glasses. Some are not.
You will probably end up spending more than you bargained - especially if your eyesight is poor.

Like a cattle market in my local... I use Boots opticians much better

Why ?



What I found the last 2 times I had my eyes checked was they will entice you in with 'attractive' offers but if you have a strong prescription like I have, by the time you have upgraded to the thinner lenses, you might as well have gone to any other optician and probably got a better deal and you don't get the hard sell...

Thanks op but not in my area

Just did my eye test. Walked away without buying any glasses 😁
@boots doing free eye test, no catch.
Store Promotion: FREE EYE TEST when you buy a complete pair of glasses from our range from £69 or above
Free if you live in Scotland anyway but heat aded for those in England and Wales.
Mum got stung £180 for basic distance and reader glasses recently...only one of each.

Helped order new glasses online 4 pairs similar quality frames with anti glare/scratch for £105 delivered.
They have told me for 20 years that i need readings glasses despite be able to read any small text. The offer of free eye test is there all year round so they need to sell you something to make money

well I have no friends & my family hates me so I welcome the attention
I went in for one of their 'Free Trials' of contact lenses. I'd never tried them before so was very keen to see what they were like as opposed to glasses and if I could manage getting them in and out okay.
I was allowed 1 lens and not allowed out the shop with it to check distance vision, not even to stand at the door, unless I signed up for a monthly subscription! Made me feel like a criminal that was going to do a runner!
Never been back, but I'm sure they'll be a lot of people that have had a very positive experience with them too.
I used this for the test and went elsewhere for my glasses after getting my prescription from them. Choice of frames is terrible in their stores. Plus my previous glasses I purchased from them were supposed to be anti scratch and anti glare, they scratched badly after a few months and had a strange green glare when looking at white lights.
My wife's glasses had the coating on the lenses from specs savers too and both pairs lenses went cloudy after a year. Plus the store was like a zoo, absolutely rammed full of people and had to wait forever to get seen to.
Would never use them again.
We went to costco. Fantastic quality and service

Just checked my local, I can either go in 3 hours time, or not for another 11 days...
Didn’t see this coming

The green glare is the anti-glare coating. I have the same coating from glassesdirect and the specsavers optician recognised them as anti-glare immediately.

I have managed to get the free eye test twice but they do the hard sell now which is putting me off.

Whenever I had an eye problem I was going straight to see the eye dr but not in this country so I dont know how it is here You cant go to eye doctor without goung to the gp first? Weird but thats how it is in UK. I always pay and go to the gynecologists once a year because GP always say if u don't have any pain why would u like to go.. lol. Not always is about pain but yeah.. gp for me is kinda not helpful dr and totally unnecessary.
Which stores? Is Bradford one of them for free eye test? Should state really!!!

I went in and got a free eye test here... they were surprised at how good my vision is and didn't try to sell me anything.

My missus on the other hand has bad eyes and they tried to sell her the World... I guess it just depends on who you get and how good/bad your eyes really are.
