I feel like naming and shaming
I am not going to name and shame but I am really annoyed at the moment. An adult with learning difficulties that I know quite well went for an eye test today. She went alone. Its an optician that she has attended previously. When she left the optician she was given the impression that she had a serious requirement to upgrade her glasses perscription urgently. Not however at the most cost effective price. I became aware as she mentioned her urgent need to get new glasses to her neighbour and he suggested she contact me.
I contacted the optician to get the perscription to at least have the option to shop around. From research at online opticians sites it appears to be a mild perscription and from a bit more research I am now aware that she could probably cut £100 off the bill if she needs to.
I am really annoyed that a professional person can take advantage of someone with learning needs in this way. Credit crunch or not.
