An eye test by an optician doesn’t just check to see whether you need glasses – it’s also an important check on the health of your eyes

3 things to know about home visits

Step 1 - Find out if you qualify

Is an eye check up free in NHS?

If you’re eligible for a free NHS sight or eye test, the NHS pays for it and you will not be charged. Read more about free NHS sight tests. Your ophthalmic practitioner or optometrist may recommend you have an NHS sight test more often than every 2 years if you: are a child wearing glasses.

step 2 - your eye test

How often can I have a free eye test?

Am I entitled to free eye tests? Everyone aged 60 and over can receive a free eye test every two years.

You’ll get a free annual sight test at any age if you have a close family member who has been diagnosed with glaucoma or you’ve been advised by an ophthalmologist that you are at risk of glaucoma.

step 3 - NHS GLASSES & LENSES

Are glasses free for over 60s?

Everyone aged over 60 gets free prescriptions.

If you’re under 60 you can save money on prescriptions by buying prescription prepayment certificates from the NHS for 3 months or 12 months.
