Eye tests at local Opticians

Where can I get an Eye Test today ?

You can ask for a copy of your prescription after an eye test in the uk, and the testing optician is obliged to give you a clear copy after your sight test to take away. It doesn't matter if you pay for or get a free NHS eye test, this still remains the same, and you must be given a copy under the Opticians act. The sight test must be accurate and fit for purpose and you are entitled to rely on its accuracy wherever you decide to purchase eyewear or lenses made up to it. Sometimes you may have to ask for it, although the law is clear on this and you shouldn't have to ask for it, it should be given freely if you decide to make a purchase with another spectacle supplier. Any disclaimer attached to the prescription about its accuracy is not legal and you are covered under your statutory consumer rights with regard to unfair contracts and disclaimers. "you have the right to rely upon the prescription wherever you buy your glasses or lenses from".

It's worth noting that a Pupil Distance measurement needed for the manufacture of glasses does not form part of an eye test and your optician will not usually provide this measurement unless you are purchasing glasses from their store. At Ilkeston Factory Specs we can legally take this measurement and have the latest equipment to measure your PD accurately when purchasing from us.

Ilkeston Factory Specs are a Laboratory Manufacturing Opticians and Eyewear Boutique. We specialise in making and supplying high quality prescription glasses at affordable prices. Although we offer expert advice about frames and lenses, we don't offer eye tests. You'll need to bring your prescription along after your eye test. You may be thinking to yourself "Where is the best place to get an eye test in Nottingham or Derby ?".
