The fund for surgery will be available to NHS nurses, doctors, fire fighters and the police.
The multiple confirmed that it established the initiative following a national survey, which found that people who dedicate their lives to public service “are most deserving of our thanks.”
HR manager at Optical Express, Dawn Kondol, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer some of the hardest working people the freedom of having better than 20/20 vision without the barrier of glasses or contact lenses. Moreover, we’d like to acknowledge everything they do for the British public – who agree that these professions are most deserving of our thanks and appreciation.”
In addition to the £1 million fund, all NHS and emergency service workers will be eligible for a 20% discount on laser eye surgery with Optical Express.
