    Default Eye Exam/Optical Shops

    I had my precription glasses stolen in a bag about 8 months ago and have been using my "backup" pair, but I think it is time to get an eye exam and new glasses made.

    Anyone had any experience/knowledge of where to get a a good eye exam and glasses made?

    Thanks

    I have tried 2, Vintage in Ever mall ( also Robinson's) and Santiago's, (next to Uni top.) Both are good and evenly priced. Waiting time to be tested about 20/25 mins depending on the time you go. both have good staff and are attentive. Despensining time to finish about 1 day again depending on time you go there. They both have there own workshops and technicians. There are many others but these 2. I have dealt with

    Any experience getting a bifocal? I need a new one and decided to wait until I'm in Duma as the cost of a new one here in The Neth's almost equals the cost of two single airline tickets Amsterdam - Manila...........

    Bifocals are available from both Outlets I posted, I have moved on to Varifocals now 3.500 for the lenses. I have them put in my own Frame. just as a guide, Frames are from about 1.500p to 6/7.000p depending on your choice. I paid about 2.750p for my bifocal lenses 3 years ago. I just was not happy with them (I found driving Difficult) so i moved on. Have to admit that the varifocals are a challenge too.

    ( other prices Quoted, are from 18 months ago but I am sure, costs have not escalated dramatically.)

    Im running on my last set of contacts and I will be going to this place for replacements. I'll post my experience once I decide to get up off my butt and go (which will be when my contacts completely deteriorate).
