The big Asda Walmart stores provide an instore opticians. You can search for one close to you using thier website.
I was lucky enough to live less than 2 miles from one of the larger Asda Walmart supercentres. I wear contact lenses and glasses and it had been a couple of years since my last checkup. Strapped for cash, I looked for a cheaper alternative to the expensive high street brands. Asda were offering Contact lens fittings for £15 and a eye test for £15.
I booked both and they fitted me in within a few days. This was brilliant because I have known to expect to wait a week or two before getting an appointment with an optician.
When I went in for my eye test, they really rushed through it and I was out within 10 minutes. I chose my new glasses and was pleasantly surprised by their "One pair of glasses for £70 or Two for £90" offer and took advantage. Two lovely Jigsaw glasses thankyou!
I was even more pleased by how quickly I had my glasses - they had promised my glasses to arrive in 10 days and I got them 6 days earlier than promised! Brilliant!
Here's the downside: When I received my glasses, they didn't feel right. I couldn't really see properly. They had clearly got my prescription wrong - and when I said "it's all a bit blurry" the woman fobbed me off saying "it's a new prescription, take a few weeks to get used to it"
Well it's been a few weeks and I still can't see. And I'm still waiting to have my contact lens fitting because my prescription is wrong, I have to go through the test again and wait for more contacts to be ordered!
They'll probably sort it all out in the end, but it's a right pain and I never experienced anything like this with Specsavers.
Summary: If they get it right, it's EXCELLENT, if they get it wrong, it's a NIGHTMARE
