Built on a passion for the optical profession and a drive for unparalleled customer service, Vision Express take vision seriously.

As a UNISON member, you are entitled to a free eye test, including retinal photography, when spending £50 in store, but even if you don’t meet the minimum spend the eye test is still only £15.

You can save £30 when buying a complete pair of glasses and get 10% off non-prescription sunglasses too.

If you are more suited to contact lenses or you want to give them a try, you can take advantage of a 3 month supply of soft disposable contact lenses, free of charge when joining our Direct Debit scheme.*

We’ll allow a friend or family member to benefit from every one of these discounts as well, so let those closest to you receive the expert eye care they deserve.
