I think mine were about £130 for the 2 pairs, but work pay £75 towards them so even that wasn't too bad! I had a lot of problems with the sunglasses but they've sorted them out now thank goodness.

I ought to enquire about work paying a portion too....I know they do help with sight tests but as our main campus is 17 miles away, I'm of the understanding you have to go to their designated optician in that town, might be worth enquiring, if it's only the sight test it wouldn't help me as I get them free anyway x

I can get free eye tests, but have to pay for any glasses. As I only need reading glasses, and I don't use those all the time, depends on the light, then I've never bothered claiming.

If you can afford laser treatmnent (mum paid half towards mine and the rest went on a credit card!) then I can recommend it.

You probably could have it done but it would be too expensive.

My one eye cost £395 and the other £695.

Ha my parents are worse with money than me!

I've never had any help from them, in fact it has always been the other way round lol.

My parents are of the generation when you didn't have credit. They wouldn't even take out a mortgage. They've always lived in rented accommodation. They've never had any credit at all and would be horrified if they knew what problems we have.

The laser treatment was a few years ago and they offered half so I wasn't going to turn it down!

Don't blame you Jan, I wouldn't either!

Your prescription has to be stable for a few years before you can have it done. My last 3 eye tests have been pretty much the same so I'd be ok with that.

I'd probably end up having it done on credit to be honest (I know I shouldn't say that!) as until you have the check up they can't tell you how much it'll be. Most of them have an interest free option, and Dave has said he would take it out for me as I'd obviously make sure I knew I could pay him back!

I will do Jan - it'll probably be about this time next year as I've got no holiday left this year and spring is no good to me as I get hay fever from the tree pollen and rub my eyes a lot.

That wouldn't be good! You have to refrain from rubbing your eyes for a while and you will want to!

You do get a pair of goggles to wear overnight for the first week so be prepared for Dave to take the p!
