Advantages: Very helpful staff
Disadvantages: Eye test expensive without the deal!
As I wear contact lenses I regularly have my eyes tested to make sure they havent changed every year. Just after christmas Specsavers were offering a free eye test, so I took advantage of this and booked an appointment at the tottenham court road branch over the phone.
I had to take out my lenses for the test, and was first seen by someone who checked the health of my eyes, then seen by someone different who actually did the eye test. This involves a lot of lense changes with a machine, and reading small letters and looking at colours. At the end of it they gave me a prescription which was identical to my existing one and sent me on my way with no pressure to buy their lenses or anything.
I also have a pair of glasses that I bought through them a few years ago for wearing in the evenings, and they were starting to feel a bit wonky. The frames were very expensive and the sales assistant warned me that they were not responsible for breaking my glasses if they tried to fix them. I left my glasses with him for 2 minutes and they were fixed! He didnt charge me anything for this and all the staff in the branch seemed smiley and friendly.
They also seem like they know what they are doing and are not at all pushy. I had a quick browse to see if there were any other frames I liked as there was a 2 for 1 offer on glasses and was asked once if I needed help.
I would recommend specsavers for a free eye test if you can get one but otherwise I think they charge around £20 and it takes about 20 minutes in all. They will also teach you to put contact lenses in if you havent done it before.
Summary: They often have good sales on glasses
