We carry out eye tests at all of our branches. The medical profession recommend regular eye tests, preferably every 6 months for adults, in order to ensure healthy vision.

You may be entitled to a free eye examination. Click here to see the criteria and see if you qualify.

Eye tests normally take approx 30 minutes and at the end of the test your optician will normally advise you of the results.
