Need glasses? Here’s what your benefits can get you

Get one free pair of glasses from our €70 range. This includes standard single-vision lenses and a scratch-resistant treatment, but you can also have 1.5 Standard bifocal or 1.5 Standard varifocal lenses at no extra charge.

Instead of using your Medical Card or PRSI entitlement to get free glasses or glasses at a reduced price, you can alternatively use it as part-payment towards any of these great offers (you just pay the difference between your entitlement value and the full price of the offer). Please note that if you choose the ‘top up’ price option, this cannot be used in conjunction with any other Specsavers offer.

  • 2 for 1 glasses from €100
  • Free Reactions
  • 2 for 1 designer glasses from €130
  • Free UltraClear SuperClean treatment
  • 20% off glasses for over-60s
