    You can have an eye exam once every 2 years, sooner if you have problems or your optician requests it to be done sooner. So, sorry but you will have to pay the full cost of the second pair.

    You can have photo-chromatic lenses so they are clear indoors or in the dark and tint when exposed to UV light (even low levels). You could upgrade to these next time or maybe you could go back to your optician that made your last pair of glasses and ask if they are prepared to upgrade your lenses in your current pair, they will only do this if you bought them very recently though. It will not hurt to ask them.

    Every three months I think. You can have as many sight tests as the opitician thinks necessary. My friend got this voucher and went to a high street store and it covered the full cost of her glasses which she said were £100.

    I think you are only allowed a voucher every two years or if your prescription changes.Ring your optician they should know.

    hiya, its 3 years,i had a row over it because that’s to long in between having your eyes tasted.but that’s all the nhs allowed.if you have eye trouble and you think you need stronger glass,then they can ask nhs if they can go ahead and see if you need them.im not sure what happens if you don’t need them,if you pay for a eye test or they pay.
