    Cheapest place for contact lens assesment

    I haven't had a contact lens check for over 3 years now (mainly wear glasses) and need a check up/test, had a normal eye test last week.
    Anyone know the cheapest place at the mo for this? as Dolland and Aitchenson wanted £40 for this quick check up.

    I think the check can be free or cheaper if you buy their lenses, but the lenses are a lot dearer than online prices

    I pay £12 a month for contacts at specsavers. That includes check ups and tests. The optician told me if I paid for 3 months I could automatically stop it after 3 months. So I got 3 months contact lenses, contact lens test and fluids for £36. And 50% of glasses! :thinking:

    I had mine done at Tesco a few weeks ago for a tenner, they are also doing free eye tests at the moment and their lenses are reasonably priced.

    Eye test was free due to offer and then they wanted the £15 for my lens assessment.

    I have plenty of lens at the moment so I am holding back for a while.

    The lenses probably cost more though.
