I should where glasses all the time as I have a turn in left eye and squint in my left. But my two year old daughter broke them a few weeks ago. I am on benefits and get a free eye test but I have one last year, but I really need glasses. I have not had a new pair for over a year. How do I go about getting a new pair?

Unfortunately there is no provision through the NHS for help towards the cost of broken or lost glasses. You can only have a voucher towards the cost of a new prescription when you have an NHS eye test. However, please enquire at your local practice and see how much a replacement pair of glasses will cost.
