    There is quite a bit of difference, that's why I hang on to my 1Div. But this thread, and the others before, is all about buying stuff for the sake of buying stuff. A bad case of iwantitis nothing more.

    I've not noticed his horizons tilt one way or the other. Always very even.

    Actually I did, last month. I couldn't get an appointment at Boots. I was about 2 years overdue for an eye test. They (Specsavers) said that I probably wouldn't notice any change from my present glasses with the new prescription so that saved me the thick end of £500, for a year at least. No point in buying something I don't need.

    Hardly a sustainable business model. What are they, Pentax?

    I had the same advice. Not a good business model but if punters appreciate the honesty they may come back next time and spend £500+

    I have given up on expensive glasses. My sight is only slightly off normal and I can cope without designer frames and ultra thin lenses.
