As you may know if you’ve been reading my blog Little Robot has recently had his eyes tested. We came away from the eye test with a prescription and NHS voucher for his first glasses, now we just needed to choose some. It was the Easter holidays and I thought both the Robots wouldn’t be impressed if we spent a long time looking around opticians so I looked online first to decide where we would go.
I started with Boots Opticians as I’d seen their adverts recently, they have a new and free eye check story, Zookeeper Zoe, which is basically an eyesight screening check in the form of a book and app. You can download it for free from the app store and it should give an indication of whether your child needs an eye test and if their colour vision is OK. I found the kids glasses on their website and saw kids glasses start at £40 and this price range is free with an NHS voucher. If you choose more expensive glasses you have to pay the difference. The Superhero glasses that Little Robot would love were £50 and so £11.30 with a voucher however, as he’s only 4, I wanted to get two pairs in case he lost or broke a pair and needed a spare whilst I got them fixed. Therefore it would have cost £61.30 for two.
