Bayfield's Free eye tests for parents

As part of a drive to get as many children’s eyes tested as possible before school terms starts in September, Bayfields Opticians, an independent, national group of opticians and audiologists, is offering parents and carers free eye tests when they book a special one hour appointment with their child before 31 August.    

The exclusive one-hour appointment includes a complimentary standard adult’s eye test – which usually costs £39 – and a free child examination* too. During this time, children will also be offered 45 minutes of free activities, games and competitions while their parent or carer has their examination. 

Royston Bayfield, founder and managing director of Bayfields Opticians and Audiologists, said: “This August we want to carry out as many free children’s eye tests as possible before they start the new academic year. As parents ourselves, we know how busy school holidays are, so we want to make it as easy as possible for the whole family to have their check ups. With that in mind, for two weeks only we’re removing our usual fee for our standard adult appointments for parents and carers who book an appointment with their children.”  

People should contact their local practice ahead of time to book the hour parent and child appointment. 

The offer is only valid to new adult customers and can’t be used in conjunction with any other promotion. The free appointment covers the standard 45 minute examination for adults, which usually costs £39, but customers can upgrade their appointment and pay extra for additional services if required. For full terms and conditions visit the website.
