The Specsavers scheme will provide you with a DSE eyecare e-voucher which covers :-

  • A full eye test which includes retinal photography if you are over 40 or your optician recommends it.
  • One complete pair of glasses from the £45 frame range, fitted with standard single vision lenses plus a scratch-resistant treatment when required solely for DSE use.
  • OR the £45 contribution can be used towards an upgrade to other frame ranges and you pay the difference.
