Glasses Direct gives away free glasses to NHS staff

To recognise and support those on the frontline, Glasses Direct, the UK’s most-trusted online glasses retailer, is giving 2,000 pairs of prescription glasses to NHS staff for free. Orders can be placed from today until 30 April 2020.

The online retailer wants to express its gratitude to all NHS staff and support them through their tireless efforts during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

NHS workers can redeem a single-use discount code by visiting www.glassesdirect.co.uk/nhs-staff. They can choose a frame priced up to £20, including clear single vision standard lenses with scratch-resistant and anti-reflection coatings. Glasses will be delivered for free, usually within 3-7 working days for single vision orders.

Barney Streeting, CEO of Glasses Direct, comments, “Where would our country be right now without our extraordinary NHS workers? From all of us at Glasses Direct, we want to say a huge thank you to the incredible emergency services, health and social care workers, and frontline medical staff for their incredible work to keep us safe and well at this troubling time.

“Since the government announced new guidelines on Monday 23 March, many of the high-street opticians have had to close. We understand NHS workers have limited time and resources to get their prescription glasses, which is why we want to support those with any urgent eyecare needs during these tough times. Those who need prescription glasses can order their frames safely online to their homes. We hope this takes away just some of their worry, if they need new glasses.”

Glasses Direct is currently continuing to operate at normal capacity, and its team of qualified opticians and optical experts are ready to help with any advice via phone and email.
