Opticians

Dear Lazyweb, if you live in Cambridge and go to an optician, who is it and are they annoying? Thanks.

Murphy on Newmarket Road, and he is the only optician ever to have told me I don't need a new prescription, I just need eyedrops. Cheeringly old-school (they still use index cards instead of databases, and they don't have lots of fancy modern air-squirting kit), and happily screw frames back together for free if you turn up with the bits.

Seconded. (My experience is as someone who doesn't need glasses, going for a routine checkup.)

Boots, because that's what work will subsidize. The only annoyance I recall was the lack of mobile signal in the waiting area.

Clamp Optometrists on St Andrew's St, who I've generally found non-annoying for the eye test part. Their range of glasses frames starts at expensive and goes upward though, so I took my prescription away and bought glasses at specsavers.

I go to Lask's, which is on Mitcham's Corner. They're not very annoying, unlike Optical Express whom I left because of a patronising shit of an optician.

We go to Taank Optometrists on Mill Road and have been happy with them.
