In August I began my placement year at Very in Liverpool and most of my work is based on a laptop. I noticed last month that my eyes were feeling a little strained so I decided to book myself in for an eye test at Boots Opticians. I hadn’t had an eye test since I was really little and if I’m honest, I’ve been really lucky with my eyes and never had any problems. The test came back that I need glasses for the computer so confirmed what I had already suspected.
On the website, there is an offer on where you can get two pairs for the price of one. I was a bit apprehensive about buying a pair of glasses online just in case they didn’t look right on me and then I have the hassle of sending them back. Glasses Direct have a free home trial service where you can choose up to 4 pairs of glasses and have the frames sent to your home, ready for you to try on. The only catch is that you have to send the parcel back within 7 days or you get charged for the frames. But with a sticker which gives you free postage, this is absolutely manageable.
