Boots Opticians has created an eye care app to help you understand the importance of looking after your vision and eye health. The app is not designed to replace your routine check-up by an optometrist, but will explain and demonstrate some of the checks involved in a professional eye examination.
The Eye Check by Boots Opticians app includes four easy-to-use eye checks that can be completed in minutes. Results are presented in a pass/fail or percentage format rating for both the left and right eye. Boots Opticians locations are easy to find on the app, with a number to call for an appointment and a discount voucher for a full professional eye check.
Key features include:
- 5 individual checks:
->Visual acuity – testing the clearness of your vision and ability to distinguish object details and shapes
-> Logmar - also testing the clearness of your vision and ability to distinguish object details and shapes
->Astigmatism – testing for a condition which causes blurred vision
->Duochrome – testing your eyes’ ability to focus using a colour chart
->Colour – testing for colour weaknesses in your eyes
- Recommendations according to your results
- A set of three questions to help further assess the health of your eyes
- Eye health advice
- Boots Opticians finder to allow you to locate your nearest Boots Opticians where a full professional examination can be given
- A voucher entitling you to a full professional eye test for only £5 at Boots Opticians.
The Eye Check by Boots Opticians app is designed to make you aware of the importance of looking after your eye health, not as a replacement for professional eye examinations. An annual sight test is recommended for children up to the age of 16 and those over 60, and at least every two years for all other adults.

Could be better
Even though I am already a person who wears glasses on a daily basis , I decided to see what this app had to say about my eyes. After taking the various tests supplied , I have to admit that Boots done a excellent job at them . Unfortunately , when I went to see my scores , I got kicked out the app (this was not because Im not on the right update or my device is too old) I'm afraid to say this wasn't the first time the app had kicked me out! Other than that minor issue , I think this app is good and everybody should give it a go.
Should've gone to.....
I found this to be a quick way to find out if you are in need of an eye check, it states to wear any glasses/contact lenses when doing the check to see if you have had a noticeable change in your prescription which I think is a clever idea. Thumbs up from me!
In my view, the tests could be a little longer to gain a fuller picture of eye health, but overall, a nice app.
