Same here although boots weren't hard sell on the glasses. I just left after the test with my prescription. (yesterday) and D & A have been owned by Boots for ten years
I’ve been to both boots and spec savers recently. No real difference in my opinion, both fine
There's always those convinced that cowboys are heroes.
Complete and utter tosh. There's good and bad in all industries. Some Specsaver branches will be better than others. It's not a perfect world. But, to their distinct advantage, Specsavers branches follow a strict regime that ensures that they have the best kit available.
Screw Specsavers - go Boots instead. Search Boots eye test voucher, it's also free atm. Update: here's the link - https://www.boots.com/opticians/opticians-offers/eye-health-test Boots tests are far more comprehensive as they run more tests using more advanced machines that they have. (Unless Specsavers has improved over the past 3 years which I doubt). Also, Specsavers CS is terrible - I had a run-in with them over issues with my glasses.
