Today, I accidentally left my glasses accidentally on a patch of grass which was having lunch on in my hour off, coming back about 40 mins later they were gone once I realised I'd lost them. I asked the people who were occupying the patch of grass (some obnoxious teenage boys) if they'd seen them, they hadn't (said in a questionable and giggling manner mind you) and there is no where around which they could have been handed in to. The glasses can't be traced to me, so they're gone, and I need new ones because I have crappy eyesight and get eye strain when I don't wear them, also need them for University.

I know was my stupid fault I left my glasses, but can't change that now, I'm fairly sure those kids nicked them for a laugh anyway They were fairly cheap frames so I don't see why.

I can't really afford to pay a prescription fee for lenses (as they're expensive, cheapest i can get is like 60 quid for my lenses alone) on top of frames, so was wondering whether the NHS would issue me another voucher as now i don't have any glasses? I have a HC2 form, which makes me exempt from paying prescriptions, eye tests etc. I don't really get how this voucher system works tbh because my mum placed the order for the ones I lost whilst I was in hospital.

How much does the eye exam and the prescription cost?
You can order glasses online from web sites like zennioptical.com ... they cost around 10 pounds there.

I don't think so. You should definitely check, but I think you can only get one voucher in X period of time (I think two years) unless your prescription's changed.
