Advantages: little or actually minimum advice, offered you prices of some sort
Disadvantages: didn't get anything out of it in the end
So i went to my local opticians at boots, (Liverpool 1 Clayton Square) to ask about these coloured contact lenses that i brought. These lenses are ones that you could wear to comic conventions etc.
When i wore them my left eye was ok but my right one kept on dragging the lens up and that was when i figured i go and ask my "friendly and helpful" opticians. I told them i've never wore contacts before and that these lenses were different. I searched up coloured lenses searching up the effects that happened in my one eye, was i somehow convinced that i might have GPC. However, i didn't say anything as the woman didn't explain to me anything and kept on saying that the lenses were probably too big with a not so amused faced that bored into my eyes.
She didn't give me any advice on these contact lenses and stopped talking altogether.
Are you going to help? Did not seem like it...
I asked if she wanted to see the lenses itself and she agreed, when i brought them out she simply said to me, "No, the packaging." fantastic, she wanted to see the packaging. Didn't make it very clear know huh? The second i brought it out she shook her head with a... was that a smirk? "We don't do them." and with that she backed away from me.
She said i should take a contact lens trial for the normal ones but didn't i already make it clear? I don't want to wear the normal ones but the big circle lenses as i've got a comic convention coming and it seemed like she didn't care what so ever. It kind of downed me how helpful they were and what i got out of it... A not so friendly optician, that rejected me, with no advice.
Terrible service. It really made me look stupid.
Summary: don't go to boots in L1, they seriously don't help.
