For the majority who qualify for free NHS eye tests, we have the knowledge and skills to help you further, right here at IntelliSight Opticians. Eligibility for NHS funded sight tests includes children under 16, those in fulltime education up to the age of 18, anyone 60 and over, people registered as visually impaired, those with diabetes, individuals who have or are at risk of glaucoma and those requiring complex lenses.
Individuals in receipt of a low income may also receive help towards the cost of spectacles or contact lenses via the NHS. Eligibility includes anyone receiving, or whose partner receives income support, income based jobseeker's allowance, income related employment and support allowance (ESA), pension credit, guarantee credit or tax credit with an exemption certificate. Those on a low income but not receiving the benefits listed may also be entitled to help from the NHS by filling out an HC1 form found in store.
