Free contact lens assessment at M&S Opticians 

Contact lenses offer great flexibility and convenience to your lifestyle. Whether you’re looking to wear contact lenses full-time or just for playing sport or going out, we’re here to help get you started. It’s simple and easy - our free contact lens assesment will ensure you’re comfortable and wearing the best lenses for your vision and your lifestyle.

What’s included in the free contact lens assessment

If you have decided to try contact lenses, we will book you in for a FREE contact lens assessment, where you’ll be able to experience how contact lenses feel at your local M&S store. 

The assessment is simple and will fly by - first, our Opticians need to check your eyes to make sure you can wear contact lenses. Then they will help you choose lenses depending on your lifestyle and will carefully place them into your eyes ensuring they’re comfortable. 

If you’re happy and want to continue wearing contact lenses, our experts will show you how to safely put intake out and store your new lenses. If you have any questions or concerns they will be happy to answer them and advise you.

If you need some more time with your contact lenses, we offer a 10-day no obligation trial for just £25*, so you can take them home and experience them in your everyday life. Then if you decide to purchase, you can claim your £25 back on your purchase.

If you have decided to order contact lenses

When you come to purchase contact lenses with us, there are two options. You can purchase our Pay-As-You-Go option or sign up to our contact lens subscription, Lensplan, which is paid via direct debit. 

As a member of Lensplan, you will enjoy additional benefits including aftercare appointments. Contact lenses will be delivered directly to your home, plus you'll receive exclusive discounts on glasses and sunglasses. 

If you are unsure what’s best for you, our Opticians will be able to run through your options with you and help you choose the right scheme for your needs.

How to book your free contact lens assessment

If you haven’t had an eye test recently, we’ll need to check your eyes to make sure you have the right prescription for your contact lenses, so you will need to book an eye exam first. If you have had an eye test in the last two years and have a prescription you can book a free contact lens assessment right away. In any case, simply call your nearest M&S Opticians to book an appointment today.

Contact lenses and your child

Contact lenses are not just for adults, kids can also benefit from wearing them. As long as they are comfortable handling and looking after them, children can start using contact lenses at any age. They are a great alternative to glasses and provide some practical benefits:

  • No more breakages, smudges or steaming up. You may find they are a practical solution for your active child. Contact lenses provide better peripheral vision, which will help your child if they play a lot of sports
  • If your child doesn’t like wearing glasses because it makes them self-conscious, contact lenses can make them feel more confident
  • Contact lenses have been clinically proven to slow the progression of myopia (short-sightedness) in children


Which contact lenses for my child?

This will be dependent on your child’s age and prescription, but the most popular type of contact lenses for children are daily disposables as they can simply be thrown away after each use and there’s no need to clean and store them. Fortnightly and monthly lenses are a slightly cheaper option but will depend on your child’s ability to look after them and keep them clean. 

Your Optician can discuss the benefits of each option with you so you can make the best decision for you and your child. You can also book a free contact lenses consultation with your child, to try lenses across our wide range of brands.

Why not arrange a free contact lens assessment for your child, so you can see how they’d get on with contact lenses? Just contact your nearest M&S Opticians store to find out more.
