This isn't really a hot deal. All the optician's i know of including specsavers offer free glasses for children anyway upto the age of 16 and even longer if still in education after 16. There is nothing new here

NHS funds for Glasses and optician charge NHS for glasses
However ther is upto a limit (guess around £50) for glass.
If D&A offer another £50 off then yes i could be a deal.

Specsavers have a habit of fitting close match lenses, not the ones you actually need. this means they are often a bit too strong for your prescription, simply because they happen to be in stock
Given that children's eyes are particularly vulnerable as they are not fully formed, they may mess up your childs eyesight. D&A, Visionexpress and Boots, although more expensive have better procedures and are worth every penny more

This is a good offer, when I got my glasses as a child I was lucky enough to have parents who could afford to (and didn't object to) get me glasses that weren't free. However not everyone can afford to pay extra, especially as kids can often break their glasses and need them replacing. This means that the choice is limited to the cheapest range which will not appeal to everyone (the choice I had was awful! They have improved, but kids expectations have increased too)

My nine year old has glasses we go to Asda opticians he gets a new pair every 6 months only paid £26 once when we got two together (as a spare pair). He's had some funky blue ones, sophisticated Silver ones and a cool pair with Sponge Bob on. None are the hideous 'NHS ones' kids had when I was at school. If you ever have to pay for glasses complain!!

I'm surprised to read this post and I feel that I must say that I am a qualified Optician working for Specsavers.

I am very sorry to read that the comments that you have posted about Specsavers.

Please let me assure you that none our lenses are fitted as close matches based upon what we stock. This is certainly not the case. All the glasses we dispense are checked to be within very tight British Standards. All our U16 Dispenses are done under supervision by a qualified Optician in accordance with GOC regulations.

In the store where I work we have the top of the range equipment from Nidek and Zeiss for both pre-test and testing and field screening.

Specsavers have always aimed to make affordable professional eyecare available to everyone.

Voted cold. I found the range of free and cheap kids glasses best at Asda. To be fair D&A could provide an eye test much sooner than Asda. The testing facilities at my local Asda seemed better, more modern.

We're sorry, we couldn't find that promotion. It may have expired

Kids can claim free glasses by law from any store so not actually a deal
