    No, you aren’t entitled to discount on glasses due to pregnancy, but you can if you are on low income. You are entitled to free NHS prescriptions and Free dental treatment though.

    No because your eye sight changes when your pregnant and if the govt were to give discount/free glasses they would be out a fortune

    Due to changes in blood pressure, most women’s vision changes temporarily during pregnancy and usually returns to the previous state after birth. For this reason, the NHS don’t do free eye tests or discounts for glasses for pregnant women.

    The only situation where you would is when you are already entitled to free eye tests. It is probably not worth getting your eyes checked until after birth (unless you believe that you are unable to drive safely etc).

    This was the advice I was given when I tried to book an appointment!
