My son had his eyes tested at our local opticians last October/November and was given a mild prescription of 125. He was told to wear them at school only. Problem, my son doesn't like wearing them but seems to struggle seeing the tv, reading, etc when not wearing them. He says it is because they are hurting his eyes. I was going to take him back however, I see Specsavers have a much better "child friendly " range. Would my son be able to have another test ( as he will be due soon anyway ) and would he be able to get another pair with an NHS voucher ?

There should not be a problem. When he is due just make an appointment at the store of your choice and take his glasses and prescription (if you have it) with you to the test.
