I didn't have to pay anything. I don't know if it was because I was getting my glasses from them.

We thought opticians here didn't do eye tests but they do. Our optician retested my eyes as it had been several months since I'd had them tested at the ophthalmologists. He explained that the opticians can do eye tests but cannot give out prescriptions that are needed to get a reimboursement from CPAM. The equipment he used was the same as was used at the ophthalmologist.

Current waiting time at the Baie de Morlaix hospital is 11 months. You could try seeingyour doctor and say it's urgent but I doubt that will bring you much further up the waiting list.

We don't bother here anymore, we go to Specsavers in the UK and the glasses are sent out to us.

Not all Opticians will execute a UK prescription .. My Optician wouldn't do my German prescription even though he wrote it in French ..
