Transforming Eye Health
Specsavers and Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) are working together to transform the nation’s eye health and defend against avoidable sight loss.
Our research has shown that nearly half of all sight loss is preventable, despite this, 13.8 million people in the UK don’t have regular eye tests*.
As such, our partnership with RNIB includes a significant multi-media investment to help educate people about eye health and to raise awareness of how regular eye tests can help reduce preventable sight loss.
Do you need an eye test?
We recommend that you book an eye test at least every two years. However, if you notice any difference in your vision, fall into a certain age group, or have started experiencing problems with your eyes, it’s best to book an eye test appointment as soon as possible.
You book an eye test here by clicking on the ‘Request an appointment’ tab above or by calling your local Specsavers store.
What is involved in an eye test?
An eye examination provides a comprehensive health assessment of the eyes and can detect signs of a number of sight-threatening conditions, including cataracts and glaucoma, which if detected early can be more successfully treated, as you will be referred to a doctor.
We do lots of tests to look at the health of your eyes here’s a typical eye examination.
