UK Eye Care Help

Okay, so. I have crappy eyesight. Due to discovering my last optician majorly messed my prescription up, I need new glasses fast. I'm putting forward a complaint to my old optician in the hope of getting a refund for my last pair, but in the meantime I can't hang about waiting for a new pair. Now, in the UK, there is a scheme where your employer will help to pay towards the cost of glasses needed for VDU use. My old optician, though otherwise crappy, would sign this regardless giving me a £75 voucher which really helped towards the cost of lenses. My new optician I trust MUCH MORE with my eyes... but unfortunately is honest and has basically said "you need your glasses just for walking without falling over, I can't sign something saying they're for working at a monitor". This is fair enough but leaves me in a situation where I need my glasses TOO MUCH to get help paying for them. I can afford them at a stretch, but it's going to hurt for a month, you know? Is there any help available for this sort of situation does anyone know?
