I like to know how much it will cost me for a eye test and I am on Jobseekers Allowance? I heard I could get my test free and glasses.
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.
As long as it is Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (not Contribution-based) you will get a free test through the NHS, and a voucher (issued by the optometrist) towards the cost of your glasses. In some opticians (including Specsavers) there is a range of complete glasses for the value of the voucher. You need to take proof of the allowance with you to the eye test.
