Help and frequently asked questions

Being a pensioner how do I know if I qualify for free NHS glasses?

Answer: 
UK citizens over 60 years of age qualify for free eye examinations through the NHS. If you're on certain benefits, you'll get a voucher towards the cost of your glasses - your optician will be able to tell you this. If not, you might still be eligible for help - complete and send off an HC1 form which you can get from any post office or your opticians.
