Quick question to all you knowledgeable  people out there:

I will be in the UK for just one week, 7th- 14th April. I want to have an eye test and buy some new glasses and prescription sunglasses. 

Can anyone recommend an opticians that will be able to do that inside a week and also are there any offers BOGOF etc. being advertised on UK TV at the moment? 

Thanks for any advice. image

Apologies if the post is not properly gardening related, but I do need them to get out there and work! image

    Boots are reasonable. You can book an appointment online.

    They usually have some sort of offer going.

    Specsavers - go on their website to book an appointment - that way you can try several different towns and see what you can get.  I always get my specs from them - they seem always to do BOGOF above a certain price, and I always pick mine up within a couple of days.

    Good luck image

  • Vision Express used to offer specs made within an hour, not sure this service still exists or would include offers. However, they have branches all over the UK, so may be worth thinking about.

  • DD - I've checked with 'Vision Express' and they assure me they would be able to accommodate your needs.

    Specsavers can always fit you in, very good, latest computer technology and always two for one.

    Thanks for all the info, have spoken to Specsavers today and they have booked me in and promised my glasses will be ready in time. image
