We get them free is Scotland and one of my colleagues has just submitted an expenses claim for hers.
It was £60!! surely they aren't that much? It was £40 for a consult and £20 for an Optomap retinal exam.

Maybe she also had a contact lense consultation? I remember these costing a huge amount. I regularly paid about 40 pounds for check ups when living in England 5 years ago.

£10 at Optical Express last Sunday and free if you bought glasses. Half price offer I think.
It was a full test too - puffer test, peripheral vision etc
