NHS Services

We offer both adult and child's NHS services, from eye examinations to the supply of complete spectacles and contact lenses. If you aren't sure what your entitlement is, you can talk to our friendly members of staff, who will treat any information you disclose as strictly confidential.


You can check the NHS Choices website for full details, but you may be entitled to NHS help if you are:


  • A child aged under 16

  • Aged 16-18 in full-time education
  • You’re aged 60 or over
  • You’re registered as partially sighted (sight impaired) or blind (severely sight impaired)
  • You’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma
  • You’ve been advised that you’re at risk of glaucoma
  • You’re eligible for an NHS complex lens voucher – our optometrist can advise you on your entitlement


We accept NHS Optical Vouchers for both spectacles and contact lenses, so whatever your requirements are, we should be able to help. We also stock a great range of fashion frames and lenses that you might normally consider too expensive but become much more affordable under your NHS entitlement. Ask our staff if we have any NHS-specific special offers on, too – we try to run these as often as we can!

Shiva Opticians welcomes both private and NHS patients, so don’t be afraid to ask our staff about what help your NHS voucher entitles you to! Whether you’re an adult or you’re enquiring for a child, we can provide you with an affordable vision solution to ensure that you get the best possible vision correction without worrying that you’re breaking your budget.


We are here to help you make the right choice
