Our trained opticians will check your eyes and precisely measure your vision in nearly all of our VIU stores. This free service is equally suitable whether you already have simple corrective or varifocal glasses or simply want to have your eyesight evaluated. Your visual acuity will be measured in dioptres and is important for both corrective glasses and sunglasses.
You can use our online booking tool to conveniently and easily choose a timeslot for your free eye test. You can also come into a VIU store for an eye test without an appointment, but we recommend that you schedule an appointment online in advance so you won’t have to wait.
One of our opticians will be waiting for you punctually in your chosen VIU store and will take ample time to determine your current vision values.
You can choose a frame either immediately after your eye test or at a later date. Our trained staff will help you find the frame that suits you best.
We recommend that you have an eye test to check your eyes at least every two years in order to detect any potential visual impairment (usually short-sightedness or long-sightedness) at an early stage. A change in vision can make itself noticeable through various symptoms and should be checked by a qualified optician or ophthalmologist. If you become aware of potential signs such as headaches, we recommend that you schedule an appointment as soon as possible to have your vision evaluated. Even if you have the feeling that your vision has deteriorated only at close range or when driving, for example, you ought to consider wearing eyeglasses.
We have put together a short checklist to help you determine whether you may have a visual impairment:
If you have an old eyeglass prescription and/or existing glasses, please bring them with you to your test. Your last measured vision values are noted in your eyeglass prescription. This enables us to determine how your vision has changed.
Please do not wear soft contact lenses 12 hours before your appointment and do not wear hard lenses 24 hours before your appointment. Contact lenses influence the geometry of the cornea and thus affect your visual performance in the eye test, which can cause inaccuracies in our measurement of your eye test values.
We offer eye tests in selected VIU stores, where you can receive advice from our staff and have your eyesight checked by our trained and experienced opticians.
