  • Checks that can help pick up early signs of eye health problems
  • A full eyesight test and recommendation from your optometrist on any eyesight needs

An eye test at Boots Opticians normally costs £25.

My wife is an optician at Boots. She mentioned that they have the vouchers at the tills too - but recommended to get one before you book your appointment just in case they've ran out.

What is the purpose of that pupil distance (is it the same as IPD?)?

And why some of them seem to refuse to do it?

Because its needed to make glasses correctly. By not telling you they hope you will use them, and not one of the cheap online shops.

If its wrong you dont look straight out of the lens, but eother slightly inwards or slightl youtwards, and in my experience (it was a big high street brand I no longer use that made the error) you end up feeling like you are slightly drunk, in that everytime you look somewhere different it takes a moment for your eyes to settle and focus.

OK for the tests (but no better than Specsavers, Asda etc) but forget buying the glasses there - outrageously expensive, and again, no better than Specsavers.

Regading "no better than Asda", has Asda ever offered a free eye test via a voucher or similar? I've never seen it for less than £19 I think, but I was wondering if it'd be possible to get it free somehow...
Is this a rolling offer? As in, do they set the expiry to the end of the current month each time? I noticed a few threads for similar Boots offers in recent months.
Got my eyes tested today, the girl give me my results, dam you ukhd , I didn't need glasses until this freebie, now I do
