This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

It's really important to have regular eye examinations, sometimes the recurring cost can be a put off. Let that not be the hindrance now though as Boots currently have an offer for a FREE eye test (worth £25)

Booking an eye test is quick and easy! You can call 0345 125 3752,* visit your nearest Boots Opticians or book an appointment online. The offer is valid till 31st October 2019.

The voucher can be downloaded from here

You do not need to purchase anything to get your free eye test.

However there is also a downloadable voucher for £20 when you spend £90 on Glasses/SunGlasses at Boots. The voucher link above gives you both of them, should you choose to take them.

Same here, but this time wasn’t entirely free and had to pay a tenner so I’m lucky I held off booking, thanks OP!

Thoroughly recommend Boots opticians as a few years back on a free test, they spotted I had an issue and made me follow up with ophthalmologist, diagnosed with macular degeneration at age of 35, so I’m very grateful to them and will always go back to them, free or not.
Bear in mind the pd measurement is not part of the test and though you may ask, they do not have to give it to you. I would also argue that it is 'easy' to do. Though often it is fairly straightforward, there are many circumstances where you would need it taken professionally. Use an opticians with qualified staff...

A free eye test?? Am I the only one to see through this?
Worth £25

I had one of these very thorough eye tests after reading about it on here last year, the one thing they won't tell you is your PD or pupillary distance,how far the centres of your eyes are apart, as I brushed past the examiner who was intent on helping me choose some frames I asked her to write it on my prescription,she was unwilling to do this so I walked out. Having got your prescription it is yours to take anywhere just like a doctors prescription,I went online and ordered several pairs at £10 each from Speckyf0ureyes on an MSE linked code....bargain....

Most high street opticians are reluctant to share your PD details though - but yes thats what I do too, once I have the measurements - I use them to order online - always cheaper buying online - high street shops are a loot when it comes to glasses.
MSE have a deal code on now for Ted Baker £30 , Levi £20 and mention Asda doing varifocal for £45.......I can't believe how much people are willing to pay for frames and the lenses in them are only a few pounds in material costs.

i still buy mine in the shops because
1. i have high prescriptions and asda does it cheaper than anywhere else
2. i havent got a high nose bridge lol so have to try the frames on.

I asked for it, no problem giving it. Tbh most opticians don't give it unless asked, as they want us to buy from their branch!.

Actually it's not part of the eye test so it's not done.
Imagine getting a free service or a full check up for less the £20 then moaning they don't do additional measurements.

Those online retailers dont have the same quality control. Normally glasses are measured after being made by an optician. I know someone who worked for these companies online and truth was shocking.
Selling damaged stock was the tip of the iceberg.
How do u know the glasses are made to the prescription you asked for.
Once you have booked, do you have to print the voucher and show them when you go for your appointment or do you just book then turn up ?

Thanks in advance
Thanks OP. Exactly what needed.
I booked it but it don’t for payment or voucher code.
Is this normal ?

You just download the voucher from the link and present it at the appointment or when you are booking over the phone, let them know about it when booking itself.

If you book online then show them the voucher when you turn up for your appointment and it should be fine.

Who's moaning?. Whether it's free or not is irrelevant. It's not free for those who buy the overpriced glasses, so it's a win-win either way. Bet you're an optician?.

Moaning about over priced glasses.
Agreed with most, there is usually a free test to be had somewhere, or if you sign up, as it’s a ploy to get you in and then up-sell, again as highlighted. There was a show recently I saw on Channel 4, super shoppers or something like that, and they showed the huge difference and mark up between high st and online frames. Not surprisingly the opticians (even retired) never revealed the profit margin on these items...
I'm gonna book 20 tests and sell them ebay.
I have had an eye test every year for as long as I can remeber and never had to pay. It's normally free if you have contact lenses or going to purchase glasses anyway?
Do you have to buy glasses from boots to get the free eye test. Thinking of doing the test but not buying the glasses.

If you make a purchase from them then yes they tend to give you free test, but if not, then you pay for the test. I usually get my tests done by them and then buy the glasses online coz its so much cheaper that ways and never had any issues with the glasses.

thats precisely what i meant
If you do a job that requires you to use a computer screen, your employer is obligated to fund periodic eye tests and also glasses if needed. I got a free eye test and glasses from boots under that. Although you only get to choose from the cheapest range.

You are right - my employer refunds me £25 for eye tests and another £40 for glasses - find it hard to get any decent glasses for £40 with the lenses though. Good thing is the health insurance also gives me £120 for glasses - now thats more in line with what I like

Just had an eye test at Specsavers and asked for my PD. Was told it varies on every pair of glasses. Sure this is nonsense, I thought it was the distance between my pupils, right?
