Free Eye Tests, Contact Lens Checks and Spectable Servicing 

Have you got 2020 vision? Free eye exam and contact lens checks during term time at Aston Eye Clinic.

All Aston University staff and family members are able to book an eye examination and contact lens check free of charge at the Aston Eye Clinic. If you would like a free eye examination and/or assessment for contact lens suitability, please call 0121 204 3900 or book an appointment online using MySight.

Not only will you receive a free eye health check and spectacle prescription if needed, but you will also be supporting our Optometry students - who are required to see patients throughout their final year. They are supervised in clinic by our experienced and qualified Staff optometrists to ensure you get the best possible service – a real ‘win-win’.

Spectacles Serviced free of charge

All Aston staff can have their current spectacles serviced free of charge in our Aston Eye Clinic. This can involve cleaning, screws tightened, nose pads repaired/replaced and frames adjusted to fit correctly and comfortably.

As we are preparing to re-brand we will also provide you with a new case, lens cloth and small cleaning set. These items are available whilst stocks last. Appointments commence from the 20 of January until the 27 of March. To book an appointment please call 0121 204 3900 or email eyecare@aston.ac.uk.
