Specsavers Eye Test
It’s recommended that everyone has an eye test at least once every two years. Eye tests can detect medical conditions that may otherwise go unnoticed, such as glaucoma. You can develop an issue with your vision at any time but people over the age of 40 who have a family history of glaucoma are more at risk, as are people over the age of 60. You might also need an eye test during pregnancy as the hormones in your body change and can give you dry eyes or blurred vision. Children and teenagers should also get their eyes tested regularly as their body changes. Undetected eye issues can cause them difficulty in school and in other aspects of life.
An eye test is always tailored to suit your needs, but a typical process begins with a pre-test where your eyes will be health checked. A tonometer will blow a puff of air into your eye in order to allow the optical assistant to assess your internal pressure and see whether you are at risk of developing glaucoma. This test can also be used to see if you are long or short sighted. You will then have a photo taken of the back of your eye before going through to speak to the optometrist who will discuss any problems with your vision. They may also perform further tests such as asking you to read a chart through different lenses or examining your retina through an ophthalmoscope, which is essentially a torch. Lastly, they’ll check for scratches on your eye’s surface using a slit lamp. If it is decided that you need glasses, the assistant will help you choose frames, fit them for you and an appointment will be made for you to pick the glasses up.
Specsavers has a wide range of glasses for men, women and children. You can choose frames in your favourite colour or even pick glasses by your favourite designer. Specsavers has a vast range of designer glasses such as Karl Lagerfeld, Love Moschino, Cath Kidston, Boss Orange, Karen Millen, PUMA and Converse. There is also an extensive range of glasses designed by Specsavers which is more affordable- you might even find dupes for designer frames in the Specsavers collection. The majority of glasses can be made in store, but specialist prescriptions may need to be sent away. There is also a range of prescription sunglasses, which can be useful for driving in the summer months or on holiday. There is a range of ComFit glasses which have been designed to be extra comfortable with soft tip arms, gel pads to reduce red marks and silicone pads over the bridges.
All glasses come with free standard lenses and a scratch-resistant treatment. You can add varifocal lenses and bifocal lenses. It can take a while for your eyes to get used to varifocal lenses so Specsavers gives you three months to try them out- if you don’t like them, you can swap to bifocal lenses or get two pairs of glasses instead for no extra cost.
Specsavers Contact Lenses
Specsavers has a wide range of contact lenses to suit all types of eyes. They have a range of lenses from the likes of Acuvue, Air Optix, Alcon, Focus Dailies and the Specsavers own-brand range, Easyvision.

The majority of Specsavers stores are open weekdays and weekends, with eye tests available on the weekends to assist people who work from Monday-Friday. Most stores keep slightly later hours than other retailers i.e. 8.30am-6pm. TO check your local store’s opening times, call the Specsavers head office contact number or visit the website.
Whether you wish to work in optometry, dispensing, as a store colleague or in the hearing clinic, Specsavers has a range of vacancies which might be suitable for you.
