Optisavers Opticians are one of the most respected and established names in their field, having been in business for over 20 years, with shops in numerous locations throughout the northwest of England. Their staff are highly trained and experienced, and most importantly, will make you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the test.
During the test, an appointed member of staff will ask you short questions about your background, family history and interests in order to better understand your particular needs. Each procedure will be explained before being commenced and the test will only take 40 minutes to complete. As this is an official NHS test, people under the age of 16 years and students up to 19 years of age in full time education, low-income earners, over 60’s and those registered blind or partially sighted are all eligible for a free eye test with Optisavers. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma, or are over 40 years of age and have an immediate relative with glaucoma, you can also take advantage of a free test. However, you must bring proof of entitlement with you on the day. Even if you don’t qualify for the free test, for less than £20 you can know the exact condition of your eyesight – this may well prevent further damage being done.
Once the Optisavers team have determined the state of your eyesight, if you do need spectacles, they will have a fantastic range of stylish options for you to choose from, including; designer frames, designer prescription sunglasses and even ski goggles. Even if the results show that you do require help with your eyesight, Optisavers might be able to recommend contact lenses instead of spectacles. They supply a variety of contact lenses – daily, monthly and bi-weekly products – can all be bought through their online store.
You can book an eye test through their website if preferred; this can be performed at your nearest branch.
