Call ahead and ask whether you can book a free eyetest quoting code: 8303. This will save any embarrassment at the till if you don't have a voucher and they are being awkward.

Best to check your local branch first -- it's not free everywhere! And you may need the voucher e.g.

specsavers.co.uk/sto…rne It's a coupon for reduced price £7.50

specsavers.co.uk/sto…own It's a coupon for a free test.

With each there is a coupon with the words:
"Valid for one test booked on or before the date and store listed below. Present voucher at time of test."

Is the 'no o(b)lication' part referring to them not being obligated to give you the results so you can buy elsewhere? (_;)

Not quite, Asda charge £15, unless you are NHS exempt.

does this also work for contact lenses?

It's for a standard eye test. If you wish to be fitted with contact lenses then you will have to pay for a contact lens consultation and subsequent fitting.

But they do not have to give you your pupillary distance, a big factor.

Correct, they are not bound to offer the Pupillary distance measurement. But, most will provide it if you request it.

Wish I had your optician then!

They won't, because they know you need that to go and buy specs online, rather from them.

Several of my friends who have paid for their eye test have asked for their PD at specsavers all over the country, and still haven't been able to get it.

I can see why they do it, but if the service is paid for then the customer should be able to access this information.

so how do i get the free eye test
do i just give them the 8303 code after the appointment
would they want a letter or something with that code?

Due my specsavers eye rest, cheers

Just measure your own pupillary distance, it's really not hard...

It doesn't matter if you measure it yourself or not. You need it correct within a millimeter and have to know what your PD is whilst looking at a distance and also close up.

Even being out a slight amount can cause headaches and worsen your vision.

Or you can put your trust in a paper ruler. Something even trained opticians struggle with, without the right equipment

Rather a big place, the Internet -- care to be more specific? A link would do nicely.


Not for me but HOT

The service of providing the PD is not a part of the standard eye test and therefore you haven't paid for it. And, if you obtain the eye test free in the first place you also haven't paid for that. If Specsavers were to give free eye tests to everyone and then everyone who had the free eye test went elsewhere for their prescription to be made up, then the end result of that would be bankruptcy for Specsavers. So, from this you can glean that they want you to have the free eye test, but then subsequent to that they want you to buy your spectacles from them. The top and bottom of it is that if people take their FREE prescriptions elsewhere in sufficient numbers, then those people will effectively kill the goose that's laying the golden free prescripton egg.

I never once said it was part of the standard prescription, did I?

If you're paying for a service to determine your prescription, then your PD should be a part of it, as without this information you put yourself at a much higher risk of worsening eyesight and gaining various other ailments as a consequence. Whilst it is not a part of the standard prescription, if paid for, your PD should be included as it does not involve an expensive piece of equipment.
PD is a key factor in getting a prescription right, and by not giving it to people, they put a persons eyesight in much greater jeopardy. It is careless for an optician not to do so, but it is also careless for the patient.

Also, I'm quite familiar with how business works, thanks for trying to give me a lesson in something I didn't need. I appreciate your "efforts".

I don't think you do appreciate how this business works. However, in order to give you the benefit of the doubt perhaps you would care to detail the reasons why an accurate PD measurement is required? Particularly in relation to "other ailments"?

Then you need to stop assuming and thinking about other people do know.

Ailment wasn't the right word to use, I'll just stick with "consequences"
As previously said, headaches, double-vision and focusing problems which can cause unnecessary strain and lead to eye fatigue.
