NDLS Eye Test

I'm looking to get an eye test done with an opticians for the NDLS form but was surprised to find it so expensive at Specsavers (€35). I'm not sure if I was naïve in thinking it was supposed to be only €15 or so in most places but does anyone know anywhere that does it cheaper? I work in Dublin 2 if that helps but don't mind travelling out a little if it'll save me.

Might be of some use to you, not sure if it covers you for the driving license form, but if you work with a computer your employer is obliged to provide you an eye test free of charge.

Our place gives you a voucher to bring to Specsavers.

Thanks, I remember a place I used to work for did that, haven't heard it mentioned where I am now but will ask around.

Are you entitled to a free eye test through the prsi scheme?

I got mine done recently in a local opticians and it was only €15 which I was surprised at
but I normally get it done for free every 2 years through PRSI

Apologies for only seeing responses now, I wasn't eligible under PRSI but found SuperSavers Opticians on Talbot Street that did it for €15.
