Book an Eye Test

Regular eye tests are essential and should form part of your healthcare routine, like visiting the doctor or dentist. In the UK the NHS provides free eye tests for qualifying patients and in some cases they also contribute towards the cost of glasses. At Optical Express, our experienced optometrists will carry out a thorough eye test and advise you on which optical solution is right for you.
