Did you know that your optician is legally obliged to let you have a copy of your prescription? Usually the cost for this is around £20. Furthermore you do not have to buy your glasses from your optician just because he/she has performed your eyetest. This of course leaves you free to buy your glasses from elesewhere. Internet sites are very often able to offer extremely competitive rates for spectacles - browse the following to see what we mean!
And don't forget, you can get a free eye test if you are under 16 or over 60. You can also get a free prescription if you have diabetes or if you have a family history of glaucoma.
