Vision Express Opticians - Vision taken seriously

Vision Express and road safety charity Brake, have joined forces in a bid to make the UK’s road safer by raising awareness of and better legislating, vision problems as a major contributor to traffic accidents. By working together, both organisations hope to encourage more drivers to have regular Eye Tests to safeguard their driving licences but more importantly, help keep Britain’s roads safer.

Staycation Tour

With 50% of holiday makers choosing to take their main holiday within the UK this year (compared to 38% in 2016), it is likely the roads will be even busier this summer. In a recent study, Brits are more likely to have their vehicles stocked with plenty of drinks and snacks but are less likely to have had their eyes tested. In fact, almost 30% of UK drivers are overdue an Eye Test, with 4% admitting to never having one at all. Vision Express are stepping in to make sure drivers know just how important it is to make sure their vision is up to the journey.

From the 17th to the 21st July 2017, Vision Express will be touring 5 Welcome Break service stations offering Free Eye Test vouchers and eye screening to highlight the importance of driver eye health and launch their driving for zero campaign, offering drivers in the UK Free Eye Tests across the summer holidays.
