I had my eye test earlier this year. They made absolutely no attempt to sell me glasses (it was only a small change in prescription). I actually preferred that over the hard selling I got at Scrivens and subsequent glasses that I didn't really like.

That's kind of how the system works.....how do you expect any business model to operate if its model is based on free or reduced professional fees?

Good customer service usually does it for me. I'd rather have that and pay for an eye test rather than the hard sell I experienced at SpecSavers!!

My experience been good so far. I use their free service for the last 6 years and there been no hard sell. The worse is they say have a look at their range on the display, whereby I say I'll come back when I have more time. On my last visit, there was no change to my prescription, even had a banter about it with the optician saying your sales people won't be happy with you today.

Perhaps it is different in certain areas.

I used Specsavers to get a free eye test, and went to my usual opticians to get the glasses.... using Specsavers prescription.
Only trouble was the prescription was completely wrong and I wasted hundreds of pounds having glasses which I cannot see out of!!
Would never use them again.
One of the few occasions where FREE really did prove to be too expensive in the long run.

Because Optometrists often work on a locum basis, the same person testing your eyes on a Tuesday in Specsavers might be working in an Independent (or elsewhere) on another day. If your prescription was wrong it's not Specsavers fault....and because you bought elsewhere you have little recourse. It's always best to buy where you had your eyes tested in case problems do arise. Sight tests have a strong subjective element so issues may arise.

Always free at Tesco opticians.

Back on again, need to pick your store and the voucher is on the page of the store specific pages. Valid until 30th Sept 2016.
