Free eye tests

How to get them

There are a number of ways to get your eye tests paid for, depending on your circumstances. Certain people are entitled to free eye tests through the NHS.

If you answer 'yes' to any of the following questions, you may be entitled to free NHS eye tests.

For a full list of eye care entitlements to free NHS eye tests, visit the NHS website.

Also keep in mind that your employer may have to help towards the cost of your eye care if you work using display screen equipment (DSE). If you use a computer at work, your employer must pay for your eye test. If you need special corrective glasses only for when you are using the computer at work, they must also pay for your glasses.
