Looking for an optician in Glasgow just for a prescription that includes PD

Found 18th Apr 2011
I am looking for an optician in Glasgow just for a prescription that includes PD.

Eye tests in Scotland are free, with the government paying the optician - but some decline to include the PD value, or others want to charge you the same as the tests cost prior to becoming free, just for the PD which is the distance between your pupils when looking at the distance the glasses were intended for (so greater for the distance, and closer for close up).

So does anyone know an optician offering this?

Black and Lizars say its company policy not to tell you, and Flechers in Shawlands wanted £20 - which I have heard others asking for too.

tesco opticians give you a complete prescription,PD included-only one I know of in glasgow is at silverburn altho Im pretty sure there must be plenty others in glasgow

Funnily, I called them earlier on 0141 435 1400, as I have loads of minutes left on my phone but no credit - so I could not do a 0845 number, and they have discontinued using the geographic number, so I never got through. But good to know as its not that far from me.

I tried Asda too, but their first appointment was mid May!!!
