I have recently been made redundant and receiving Job Seekers Allowance. Can you explain if I am entitled to any free/discounted service? If I visit my branch what information will I need to take with me?
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.
If your on income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, you are entitled to a free eye test through the NHS and a voucher towards the cost of your glasses. Some opticians like Specsavers have a range of glasses that are free for the value of the voucher. You should take any proof with you of this benefit if you have any.
