Normally the NHS will only pay for a sight test every two years, but if you have problems with your eyes, or your optician recommends it, then you might be able to have your eye test paid for moreoften. This is likely if you are diabetic, over 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, or are 70 or over.

Ralph Carr Opticians was first established by Ralph himself, in 1926, at 101 Church Street where he literally lived 'over the shop'. In 1976, following the 50th anniversary of the increasinglysuccessful St Helens practice a second site was established in Lydiate. Ralph was the first professional optician in this country. The practice he established has been handed down to Ralph's son Allan and then to Allan's son Ian who still works at the practice today alongside his wife Janet.

The very first Millican family opticians was started over 60 years ago in 1949 by Harry Millican as part of a pharmacy in West Derby Road, Tuebrook. This was quickly followed by a similar venture inEverton Road in 1951 opened by his brother John Millican. The two brothers then joined forces and opened a dedicated optical practice in Old Swan in 1956, very close to where the present Old Swan Millican Opticians is today.
