If you qualify then you should make the Optometrist aware of this during your eye examination and request your Yellow NHS voucher along with your prescription at the end of the sight test. You will need to have both of these available when we visit.
With the NHS voucher we will have certain ranges available for you free of charge, or indeed other ranges at a reduced cost.
