Glasses Direct is giving 2,000 pairs of prescription glasses to NHS staff for free until April 30 to say thank you and support them during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

NHS workers can redeem a single-use discount code on the company’s website and select a pair of frames priced up to £20 including single vision lenses with scratch-resistant and anti-reflection coatings.

Barney Streeting, CEO of Glasses Direct, said: ‘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.’
