Used this twice now. They do give you your prescription regardless, but the high pressure sell they adopt during the test is really annoying and there very pleasant attitude changes for the worse when they realise you are not going to buy anything. Still free though, just stick up for yourself.

Like Specsavers, Boots Opticians are a franchised organisation managed by an qualified Ophthalmic. Unfortunately Boots Opticians have a history of pressure selling, being fined for illegally promoting blue light coatings. Having experienced first-hand how an optician attempted to falsify a prescription adding a +0.5 power to sell blue tinted, computer lenses avoid Boots like the plague. Luckily saw through the scam, and went to another Opticians that confirmed my suspicions.
I didn't see this deal coming!
Will they give you the test results if you don't buy anything?

Having waved goodbye to 59 and looking at 60 with some degree of hostility I was slightly mollified when I found out I now got free prescriptions and eye tests

they have to legally
also worth noting, free if you are a diabetic or use screens constantly as a main part of your job. For the latter your employer has to give some sort of voucher
How does this work if the voucher says that photocopies are not accepted.
Isn't printing the voucher a photocopy ?
Great thankyou,voucher i had was for £10 unless you purchased glasses so can now get free.
Just walk into boots and ask for an appointment. Never paid yet. Tell em you’ll nip to specsavers instead and they put a coupon from the till

My local Specsavers and Tesco both have always had free eyetests

Cheers OP. Brilliant timing as I've got my Boots eye test next week & I'd only downloaded the £10 voucher prior to seeing your post. Heat added. Thanks for posting.

By Law, They MUST give you a copy of the results so you shouldn’t even have to ask
Heat added. Free in vision express visa website as well.
Vision express do the same offer .. Tried to flog me expensive specs .. I politely declined , got my prescription and went to asda for cracking value lenses

Same question here!


I just showed the voucher on my phone
Good
Does this include contact lense? Or is it only eye test only and pay for contact test separately? I'm sure it's free isn't it? I want to make sure because vision express give 5 day trial or somthibg like that? Does anyone know?

I used this yesterday- they also filled out a CAA medical form which I needed for my aviation medical, no problems whatsoever. Completely free

Just want to balance this by saying I've never been pressured to buy anything. I also find them very helpful.
Thanks OP. I have used this 2 yrs back. Today I booked appointment, will use this voucher.
Move to Scotland 🏴??????

They are free for everyone...

I've never experienced this with Boots. Could be store-specific, especially as franchised. I've had a free Boots eye test, failed to find a suitable pair in Boots, and then gone on to use Glasses Direct. Boots had no issues giving me my prescription.

I saw it coming a mile off. But then, I went to Specsavers
Used this last year. They didn't try any pressure selling on me, but that was probably because my eye sight was pretty good.
I went to boots for free eye test two years ago, they did try sales techniques on me and prices up the lenses and frame I was after - rayban wayfarer. I remember laughing when she told me the total would be £569 including lens coatings.

Ordered the same glasses, 100% legit, online later on that day for £160 with same coatings online. Profiteering at its best.
Nice one OP. Heat for you.
You need a boots advantage card to be able to book an appointment
Had one done some time ago and was surprised how comprehensive it was. Takes about 30 min to go through all machines and equipment they have. Booking another one now. Thanks. Great find.

Contact lens fitting is normally a separate appointment, in which they do a few extra tests such as eye screening and eye pressure to ensure you're safe to wear contacts. They will also make sure that you are comfortable with putting the lenses in and taking them out before you leave the room.

I use Vision Express' direct debit scheme for contacts, which worked out cheaper than my contacts alone (mine are ridiculously expensive extended range astigmatism ones...). You get free check ups, eye tests, lost lens replacement and free solution (more than 3 people could go through tbh).
Tesco give free eye test as standard.
What am I missing?

Most opticians expect you to buy a product after you get their "free" test. If you don't, they try and charge you for the test. You can easily get away without paying though if you have half a brain.
Just FYI it’s true you must be given a copy of your prescription BUT N.B. they are not required to include your Pupil Distance which is what you need for online ordering and can be critical to getting accurate lens fitting.
I've been with Boots for years (from when they were still D&A) and haven't bought glasses from them for probably the last 10, just collect my prescription and go then order online from somewhere cheaper. Never had any issues with pressure selling or trying to tell me I need blue tints etc.

I'd recommend getting your eyes checked regardless of whether or not you think you need glasses. I was diagnosed with glaucoma about three years back because the optician at Boots thought something wasn't right. Two trips to the hospital consultant later, despite me being comparatively young and not showing obvious signs, they confirmed it. Luckily, caught very early so the long term prognosis is excellent and I get free eye tests for life now anyway!
Already free in Scotland.
I admire boots for their 1 year glasses guarantee, took mine in when it broke and they gave me a new frame on the spot.
The puff of air blast into your eyeball test is evil though.
