NHS VOUCHERS - Help Towards The Cost Of Specs
 

  • The management of funding from one primary care provider to another varies greatly and over the last twelve months we have experienced great difficulty in recouping our costs when providing spectacles via our online spectacle shop.
  • In some cases the primary care trusts have simply refused to make payment for some glasses we have supplied in good faith.
  • I'm sorry but due to inconsistencies in support from some primary care trusts Budgetspex is no longer able to accept NHS spectacle vouchers.
  • However if you are able to call into our premises in Halesowen for spectacles our local PCT is happy to accept vouchers.

Prescriptions And How To Read Them

  • When you take an eye test your optician will ask you what type of conditions you want to improve your vision for , for example your work or hobby may involve the use of computers , or maybe your hobby is painting , where the distance you need to focus at is slightly further away than your normal reading distance , In this case your optician might prescribe a lens between your distance and your reading prescription . This is called a middle distance or intermediate prescription.
  • Usually your optician will first test your distance vision and when satisfied will decide on how much magnification to add to this to enable you to read clearly , this is the reading add as described pictorially to the right .
  • The add is only extra magnification which is added to the Sph or spherical ( magnifying ) part of your prescription.
  • If you are still unsure of the true content of your prescription just send a scanned image of it to rxhelp@budgetspex.com , and I will endeavor to decipher or translate it.

Your Pupillary Distance PD

Measuring your own pupil distance ( PD ) is relatively simple.

  • Facing a friend ask them to place a ruler that is marked in millimeters across the bridge of the nose as in our picture.
  • Measure firstly from the inside edge of the right pupil to the outside edge of the left pupil.
  • Take a note of this measurement then repeat this action but from the inside edge of the left pupil to the outside edge of the right pupil.
  • If the two measurements differ slightly don't worry this is probably due to eye or hand movement , just use the average of the two measurements.
  • If the measurements differ greatly repeat the measuring process.
  • Our model has a PD of 58mm which is below average.
