From MSE email:

Book online at Optical Express then print the voucher and take it to your nearest store by Tue 31 March for a free eye test.

If you book a test, the voucher will also give you £30 off when you spend £100 or more on complete glasses (frames and lenses), but you can just get the free eye test without buying anything.

The voucher's valid UK-wide, but remember if you live in Scotland, everyone gets free eye tests. Some are also eligible for free NHS tests

I remember hipsters.

Tesco's are like the garage that does a cheap MOT you will always needs new specs.

I thought this was going to be a freebie Proclaimers album X)

Not knocking this. I tend to go to ASDA as my specs need changing every year. No fee, good service and designer frame (quite a good range) ultrathin varifocal lenses. £99!!!

Great service from Optical Express ,very thorough. Then comes the hard sell after the eye test.

Probably true for all Opticians as the professional fee is contained within glasses sales rather than actually paying the proper price for an eye examination. Without actually selling glasses those shops would shut down.

For something as important as your sight it's probably better to choose an Optician based quality of the eye exam rather than it's price....which is why independent Opticians often come out on top over production line massive franchise stores.

Don't go to optical express in croydon - I went with a free voucher for an eye test and they treated me like dirt and then gave me the wrong prescription. I will never go to them again !

they called me the next day for an appointment, booked in.

went to my nearest branch, did tests (there's also a computer questionaire, with details eg home/next of kin/contact) & towards the end, i was asked for £30 for the test so showed the email confirming the voucher/appointment on my phone. enquiring about lens cost, i was advised about £100 + frame cost. they then email you an iScan test results (with prescription) the same day, so fairly painless.

If you feel that you had a poor eye test or was actually handed the wrong prescription then you can complain to the optician in store, however if the problem is still not resolved then you can complain to the Optical Consumer Complaints Service. Google occs for their website.
