I'm the same badboy .....but I go to vision express to get my glasses.


A fried off mine said you can get a contact lens to put in one eye and leave it in there for reading...


I might try it.

I have had an eye test today, everything is fine, no need to change my subscription.

The Optician was a beautiful young lady, immaculate clothing, immaculate hair and make up.

She did the usually chart tests. Then she took a close look into my eyes shining a light into them.

That is when it hit me. Her Breath was so bad that it took me back.

I did not comment or anything, as not to upset the young lady, I just thanked her politely for the tests.

I just wondered would everyone pretend to ignore it, or would some of you be tempted to comment on it, even though it would upset her.

Like you, I wouldn't have said anything.

A very difficult situation; it would need I think someone who knows her better - a colleague or a friend - to tell her. I'm surprised they haven't already.

My nephew-in-law went to Specsavers because he'd been having bad headaches....they did the tests and he got his glasses. Headaches didn't get any better, his eyesight got worse. He's had a bleed in both eyes and Specsavers didn't see it! Now he's more or less lost the sight in one eye and has been waiting 3 weeks for an app at Moorfields. He's been told not to drive until he's been to the hospital.

I won't be going to Specsavers.

Seeing if you need to change your glasses prescription is one thing, finding if your eyes are disease free is another. To know if your eyes are healthy you need to go to the eye doctor. There are many eye problems only doctors can diagnose and which can lead to irreversible blindness.

My optician takes a picture of the back of the eye and then puts it on the computer for me to see. It can show signs of macular disease, cataracts, diabetes, etc. I'd have thought it would show a bleed. I'm assuming Specsavers didn't offer that service in this instance.

I had some new varifocals made at a new opticians recently opened in my village and they are excellent,i can now see much better ! But they cost quite a bit so i really need to be careful with them and hope my eyes dont change for a few years.

I cannot wear contact lens's as i sometimes do work with blow lamps and metal grinders and electrical power and plus i have a lazy eye that isn't very good so i have to be careful to look after my good eye.Contact lens's mght melt if i get a shock which i sometimes do when i'm a bit careless.
