For our frontline heroes

Free contact lenses to frontline workers during COVID-19 outbreak

Update: We've been overwhelmed by your amazing response, which was much bigger than we expected. Unfortunately, we have now given away all 4,000 everclear ADM codes to key workers that emailed us in the last few days. You can still save 20% off our product range by using your Blue Light Card membership - and our team is constantly looking for ways to support the incredible work that you do, so we hope we can help out again in the future. Once again, thank you for keeping us safe.

We are so grateful for all the incredible staff working hard at the frontline of the coronavirus outbreak. From NHS workers to those in the armed forces, social care and teachers: you are our heroes. As a way of saying thank you for keeping us safe, we're giving out 4,000 free packs of contact lenses to make your personal protective equipment feel more comfortable. Each pack will have 30 lenses and you'll get a month's supply for both eyes and you'll need to have a valid prescription.

PPE is vital to frontline work, and contact lenses are the least obstructive form of vision correction to wear under maskings, visors and suits, as they don't require any adjustments during the day. Glasses can fog up under protective masks, reducing the visibility of the wearer - but contact lenses offer better clarity, increased comfort and seamless peripheral vision, which is important for all key workers in their role.

Frequently asked questions


Am I eligible to claim free lenses?

Our free lenses scheme is open to all NHS staff, police and fire service, social care workers and teachers, but our team will need to see your work ID to make sure you're eligible. This offer is valid to new and existing customers.

Can I wear everclear ADM?

If you've had a contact lens fitting with an optician and your prescription is up to date then you're all set to wear contact lenses. It's important to have had a recent contact lens fitting before applying, to make sure everclear ADM fits with your prescription. Please note: your glasses prescription is different from your contact lens one and we always recommend consulting your optician before trying a lens for the first time.

How do I get my code?

Easy! Send us an email to keyworkers@visiondirect.co.uk with a picture of you holding your work ID. If you don't have an ID, simply use your work email address and let us know which organisation you work for. We'll reply shortly with your unique code to use on visiondirect.co.uk.

How do I use my code?

Just like any other discount code, you will need to add everclear ADM 30 pack to your cart, go to checkout, fill in your prescription details and paste your unique code in the dedicated field on the right-hand side. The promo code will apply the discount for the cost of two boxes - giving you a month's supply of lenses for free!
