People seem to like them and they are doing 1 pair for £80, 2 pairs for £120. That includes varifocals and thinner lenses. I went there and got a site test but it did not seem as thorough as the test I have previously had, non of that is this better, is that better, etc. Took less time. They also did not do the thing with the red/green images, although I think maybe Boots did not do this either. Maybe it's an old thing not done any more.

My pescription has changes a little, Rght 7.5 to 8 and Left 6.25 to 6.5.  Right has been 7.5 since 2017. He also said the Axis had changes a lot in the last year but it seems the reading they took of my current glasses was wrong as looking at my old perscription it has not.  Was verry keen for me to get new glasses.

The other thing was when I asked for my prescription (they did not voluntarily give it to me like all the other places I have been they made some excuse about their printer not working (but said they would give it to me in a few days).

I then spent quite a long time looking at frames and miraculously the printer was fixed and they gave it to me.

He also said I had a squint in both eyes. No one has ever said this before.

He also said my lenses were getting slightly cloudy, nothing to worry about but should protect them from the sun (may of been a way to persuade me to get a second pair of sunglasses, maybe)

I'm not sure what to do. May see if I can get a test from Boots.

    Maybe it depends on different branches but mine in Hull are amazing..30 min test very professional and the girls are amazing helping with frames. 
    I have a narrow bridge..Boots have little choice for me. 
    At Asda this time I got reactor lenses for the first time..absolutely amazing.
