    Hi I had my eyes tested for the first time October 2016 and needed glasses I was 15 so got the eye test paid for and a voucher towards my current glasses. I was told you get a free eye test every 2, years as I'm in full time education, despite boots sending me 6 letters saying I'm due a test?
    My question, I've just broken my glasses, if I pay for an eye test and it's a new pescription do I get nhs vouchers again or do I have to wait the full 2 years?

    Cheers

    If you're 18 or under you get free eye tests anyway being in full-time education. You don't pay for them until you're 19, unless you fill out some forms.

    Thanks for the reply

    I agree however I was told the voucher for free eye test and voucher towards glasses was only valid every 2 years hence reason for asking needed clarification. 🙂
