Reckon it’s time you had your sight checked? We’ve blagged you an Optical Express voucher for a free eye test (norm £20), available until Tue 14 May.
Simply go via this Optical Express* link, fill in your details and request a call back to book an appointment at your local branch (find your nearest). Your eye test must be carried out by Tue 14 May.
You'll then receive your voucher digitally in an email, but make sure you print it out for your appointment if you can. Optical Express says it should be able to accept vouchers on phone screens, but it's usually safer to present a printed version.
The voucher's valid UK-wide and Optical Express has confirmed there's no obligation to act on its advice, or to make a purchase. However, if you do decide to buy and spend £100+ on a pair of glasses (lenses and frames), you’ll get a free second pair – so it’s two pairs for £100. In addition, those spending £200+ will get £50 off with our blagged voucher.
Optical Express won't always be the cheapest place to buy your specs though - see our Cheap Glasses page for the latest deals.
Can I get a free eye test on the NHS?
If you're under 16 (or up to 19 and in full-time education), over 60, or if you live in Scotland, you're entitled to free eye tests on the NHS.

Need-to-knows for getting cheapest price
- The codes are valid on the frames via our SpeckyFourEyes* link only.
- If you want the lowest price, pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package. If you want thinner or scratch-resistant lenses, select the 'Specky' packages, but this will cost £9-£125 extra.
- You can either enter your prescription during the checkout process, or opt to send it later. Some frames aren't suitable for high prescriptions, so keep an eye out when choosing (sorry!).
- When asked to choose a delivery type, select 'Royal Mail Standard' at £4.99 if you want the cheapest option.
You can use the code more than once but can only use one code per item, per transaction - so you'll need to make multiple transactions if you want more than one item. The codes get you free delivery (norm £4.99), and takes 7-20 working days. Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra.
SpeckyFourEyes says there are good stock levels available, but all frames are subject to availability, so they could still sell out fast if demand is high.
If you're a new customer to online glasses and contact lens retailer Vision Direct*, enter the MSE Blagged code MSE11 to get 11% off everything on site. Delivery's £2.98. It can't be used with other offers.
Vision Direct may not always be the cheapest retailer, even with the code, so make sure to always do your own price comparisons.
You can get a complete pair of varifocal glasses for £45 at Asda Opticians*. The price includes value frames, lenses, anti-reflective coating, tints and thinner lenses (if required).
We compared prices with a number of other opticians, and found that Asda Opticians was the cheapest for varifocal glasses. Always compare prices before you buy though, as you may find a good deal at your local opticians.
See below for the prices of a complete pair of varifocal glasses elsewhere:
- Tesco Opticians from £60
- Specsavers from £69
- Glasses Direct from £95
