Your eyes over 60
A helping hand with your vision problems

Regular eye tests and wearing the correct eyewear can make all the difference in helping you retain great vision well into your older years. Now that you’re over 60, you are fully entitled to a free NHS eye test every two years – perfect for keeping pace with any changes in your eyesight prescription. Over 70? You can benefit from a free NHS eye test once every year!

Of course, letting us care for your eyes over 60 will not only help with your vision. It could potentially spot other health warnings too, identifying eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma and diabetes. Give us a call or pop in and see us at your nearest branch today to find out more.

Eyesight for driving: the facts

As you get older, it’s essential you mirror the ongoing changes in your vision with changes in your driving style too. An eye test will determine whether or not your prescription still meets the legal requirement to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5m so it’s vital you come in regularly to check it hasn’t changed. If you have any questions about eyesight for driving, please don’t hesitate to ask.
