First time getting my eyes tested and they were great! Lots of staff that interact well and make the experience enjoyable. Got a great deal on designer glasses with my health fund, but even without, its a good deal. Picking up my glasses next week and am a little bit excited.

This is awesome idea. Hope someone brings franchise to Invercargill. Closest is Timaru at the mo but would be great if they came down here. I would def be using them. 2 glasses for price of 1.

While I have no complaints about the service recieved at Specsavers recently for an eye exam, I wouldn't write home about it either (although I will write to WOMF about it).

I haven't had an eye exam before, but I assumed it would take longer than the 10 min exam given. That's not really the basis of my post though.

If you believe the current marketing hype for Specsavers you would assume that you will get 2 pairs of glasses relatively cheaply. There appears to be a limited range of the cheaper glasses, with an emphasis placed on the more expensive branded frames.

The assistant was helpful, but I felt pushed to choose frames from the most expensive range. This was mainly because a wider variety of frames were availabe from these ranges.

I was disappointed that you were unable to take a couple of pairs of frames away to assess overnight which were the best to choose. Instead I was told that I could look at the frames on the internet - not much use for actually assessing how they look and feel on your face.

After this experience I decided to check out other optometrists in Dunedin. I can say that Bridgeman and Dean were acutally cheaper than Specsavers in all regards. They also have a great selection of frames priced in three price brackets, similar to the way that frames are priced at Specsavers. Initial eye exams are also cheaper.

I also visited OPSM, and while their frames are a bit more than I'm wanting to spend at the moment, they have a great selection of current designer frames.

I have decided to get a second eye exam done at Bridgeman and Dean this week to double check that I have been given the correct perscription (as I felt the exam at Specsavers was possibly a bit fast - but I've never had one before so I could be wrong in that regard) I figure it's probably worth spending a little extra to make sure I get it right the first time.

It pays to do your homework!
