Not "free" as in the Scottish or Welsh sense. In England, if you are a "VDU user" within specified constraints, your employer must pay for regular eye examinations and "basic" glasses if required.

There are those who can get free eye tests; the poor, those with family history of certain eye problems, and diabetics (others too, I'm sure).
