Book an eye test

We offer free eye tests (yes, really) by qualified optometrists in our stores. Whether you’re a glasses wearer or not, it’s a good idea to have a check up once every two years, as your eyes can change over time. To book, use our store finder and follow the steps to book a time slot online. An eye test takes around 30 minutes for single vision and multifocal glasses, so you can even drop in on your lunch break. Due to circumstances around COVID-19, eye tests are currently taking place with extra safety measures in place. We are disinfecting equipment between appointments and maintaining distance at all times. If you live in Germany, you are required to wear a protective face mask during the appointment.

In the UK and Ireland, due to local restrictions, we're only carrying out eye tests that are deemed necessary. Tests are only available for people:

  • With clinical risk factors caused by extended time between eye tests
  • Who have broken glasses and need new eyewear for everyday function
  • Whose wellbeing is affected by worrying about their vision

Before your eye test, we need a few things from you:

  • Please be on time. To avoid delays for others, if you’re more than 5 minutes late, we’ll cancel your appointment and you’ll have to rebook.
  • If you normally wear glasses, bring them along.
  • If you normally wear contact lenses, please take them out before your appointment. For soft lenses, remove them 30 minutes before and for hard lenses, 12 hours before.
