Free contact lens assessment and trial

Thinking of trying contact lenses but not sure if they’re for you? A free assessment and trial can help you decide

What is it?

Contact lenses can be a great alternative to glasses, but it’s important to us that you make the right choice for your needs. 

At your contact lens assessment, our clinicians will talk you through the various options so that together we can make sure that contact lenses are a good choice for you.

What happens?

During your assessment, which takes around 30 minutes, we’ll make sure contact lenses are suitable for you and discuss your requirements. We'll then:

  • Show you how to put in and remove contact lenses
  • Explain how to look after them
  • Organise your free trial to help you decide if you’d like to begin wearing them
  • Tell you about the different pay plan options, including our Boots Opticians Contact Lens Reward Scheme
