Free eye test at Tesco

In-store offer
Discount: Free eye test for Anyone

Either book an eye test over the phone (0845 601 3479) or visit one of 176 Tesco Opticians nationwide.
The details: As it's an ongoing offer, you don't need to print a voucher, and there's obviously no need to buy glasses from there afterwards.

Eye tests are permanently free at Tesco, so simply make an appointment at one of its 176 stores with opticians in them by calling 0845 6013479 or using the above link.

To find a participating store, use the store locator and select the 'Opticians available' option.

Why pay for it elsewhere?
But I do hate Tesco ....

Very good. Get the prescription and go to one of those on-line sites like selectspecs and get a pair including a uv/anti-reflex/anti-scratch coated lens for about a for tenner!

Have tried Tesco Opticians in the past, they were very thorough.

Retrieved the following from SayNoTo0870.com:

0161 942 7719

National Call Centre for Tesco Opticians
Menu options same as on 0845 number
Often, to contact the optician within a store, change the last two digits of the store number to 38.

Quote code IR at Boots opticians for free eye test too!
If you got to any specsavers/VE/OE/boots and ask for a free sight test because tesco are doing it they will 9/10 give you one.
Ooh I was just thinking I need to go get an eye test before I get new glasses this is perfect thanks OP
My experience with Tesco opticians in Sandhurst was not very good, the optician was not very thorough and was obviously in a hurry to finish. Got my prescription and 6 months later my vision got worse and went to Boots opticians who used more equipment (e.g. visual field check testing machine) and used more time in checking thoroughly. They also have a second person (probably a head optician) who double checks the results whereas the Tesco optician is just one guy checking everyone's eyes (the others were just receptionists).

There was a big difference in the new prescription (I brought the prescription given to me from Tesco) so the optician from Boots suggested I go to the GP because it might be my blood sugar or something else. Got all the checks from the GP and everything was fine so I assume it's the wrong prescription from Tesco. They are probably good in other branches but my experience made me stay away from their opticians in the future.
dont want no horse dna in my eye drops…
@gx3k. Most likely you saw a student on your visit to boots and result was seen by supervisor optometrist. A student may take anywhere between 30-40 mins, and thus your perception of good test.
I originally trained with boots and can vouch for attention to detail especially the visual field test being standard. However most optometrists will provide an eye examination to a good standard regardless even free ones.

Not everyone.
I didn't know, so thank you OP
If you wish to go buy your specs ONLINE after you have a prescription from Tesco, make sure you know your Pupillary Distance (PD) from a previous eye test. Tesco will not give you this information and I don't think they are obliged to provide it.

Having said that, you might get lucky and an inexperienced trainee may measure your PD for you...

Where do you enter the code on Boots site ?
Can't see it myself
I did this about a year ago. The test was quicker than my previous ones but seemed ok and they came out similar to what I had before which makes sense.

I took in the online order form for tesco glasses and asked what I put in the Pupiliary distance box and they measured me there and then and gave me the figure which was helpful.

You can order online from Tesco but you still have to collect from the store. The fitting in the store consists of a lady asking if they fit and saying ok then.

All in all I am wearing the glasses now and they have been fine for a year. Test, glasses and lenses were £15 all in, so a bargain really.
I used to work for an opticians, its funny reading peoples comments on here and how much they think they know.

All the gear no idea!!!!!
Eye tests are already free in Scotland...
they have been free in our local store since they opened a few years back
Gutted, paid £10 at Specsavers the other day. Though actually a second opinion might not be a bad shout.

Edit: Scratch that, my nearest is 4.53 miles away.
