We offer free eye tests (yes, really) by qualified optometrists in most of our stores. If you’re wondering what it involves, look no further.
When do you need an eye test?
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.
If you’re not due for a check up, there might be other good reasons to get your eyes looked at:
You’ve lost your glasses or prescription
You notice things are looking a little hazy
Your eyes feel tired, uncomfortable or strained
You're safe with us
We're taking extra precautions in-store and during eye tests to make sure you and our team stay healthy and limit the spread of COVID-19.
What happens during the test?
Our eye tests are carried out by qualified optometrists, using top-notch machinery. We look for common problems (myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) and how much correction is needed, if any. Find out more details about the technical stuff here.
An eye test with us goes a bit like this:
Firstly, we start by asking a few questions about your eyes, to understand your needs
We check your current prescription (if you have one)
Next, we look at your visual acuity — in other words, we look at the clarity and sharpness of your vision
We test your right eye, including checking for astigmatism, then we do the same with your left eye
Lastly, we perform a few tests with both eyes together, to double check the results
We’ll save your prescription in your online account for safekeeping. If you want a printed version; no problem, just ask your optometrist!
