You can get a voucher for a free eye test (norm £15-£25) at Specsavers*, valid at around 550 Specsavers stores, until Sun 30 Sep. You'll then have until Sat 13 Oct to use the voucher.
Specsavers says you should book your eye test in advance. To find out if your branch is participating, enter your postcode on the eye test booking page* and click on your store in the list that appears. You should then see the free eye test voucher (you may need to scroll down).
You can then book online or by calling your branch. It's worth mentioning the voucher when you book.
Specsavers won't always be the cheapest place to buy your specs though - see our Cheap Glasses page for the latest deals, including two pairs for £16 at Glasses Direct.
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.
It's one voucher per person. Can't be used with any other vouchers, or by customers entitled to a free NHS eye test.

You may have seen Glasses Direct advertising 'two pairs of glasses for £19' - a good deal in itself - but you can actually make it £3 cheaper and get two pairs for £16 delivered if you use our MSE Blagged code MSESEPT16 on top of two existing Glasses Direct* offers, before 11.59pm on Mon 24 Sep.
Here's what to do:
1. 2for1 on prescription glasses £49 or over. Glasses Direct has a range of frames priced from £49, which are currently on a 2for1 offer*, so you get the cheapest free. Once you pick your frames (Boutique frames are excluded), you'll be asked to choose your lens package. If you don't want any extras such as scratch-resistant coatings, you can avoid the extra costs by clicking on 'continue with basic lenses'.
2. Code gets £33 off & free delivery. After adding the second pair to your basket, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later. Then use the code MSESEPT16 at the checkout by 11.59pm on Mon 24 Sep to get an extra £33 off ANY glasses where individual frames cost £49 or more (before the 2for1 discount). It's not valid when you spend £49 or more on several cheaper frames. Delivery is free with the code (normally £3.95). If you copy and paste the code, make sure there are no spaces either side of it as this can prevent it from working. If you're still having difficulty, try clearing your cookies and starting again.
Combining these offers could get you two pairs of glasses for just £16, plus free delivery. What's more, the second pair doesn't have to be the same prescription as the first, so you could get one for yourself and one for someone else.
It's worth noting that if you need bifocal lenses you'll have to pay an extra £39, and it's an extra £49 for varifocals.
This deal won't work on very strong prescriptions
Orders for very strong prescriptions are excluded, such as when the combined SPH and CYL is greater than +/-8.00, when the CYL is over +/-4.00, if there is more than a 5.00D difference between each eye or if the prism correction is over 4.00 in any direction.
Free 'Home Trial'
Glasses Direct offers a free 'Home Trial' service, where you can choose some frames to be sent to you, so that you can try them on at home and see if you like them. It's told us that as long as you order a Home Trial from your account before the code expires, you'll be able to use the code once you've tried the frames and are ready to purchase some glasses, even if it's past the code expiry date.
Free eye tests
If your prescription is out of date, check if you can get a free eye test.
Check out our cheap glasses page for other glasses deals or if it’s contacts you’re after, take a look at our cheap lenses guide. Also it might be worth checking if you qualify for free glasses using NHS vouchers.
Single vision lenses are free with all orders. Other lenses and lens packages can be added at an additional cost.
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.
