Will opticians close?

I’ve been WFH since March, and I’m spending many more hours staring at a screen than I used to. I really think I need a new prescription. My appointment is on 9 November. Is there any chance of it going ahead?

I think they'll be classed as medical services and stay open

Oh good, because I’ve been putting off spending out on new glasses, but I really do need to! Mine have had it!

Hopefully not - my eyesight is buggered, my glasses lenses are scratched to fook but I need to wait till month end to be able to afford new specs!

It will more than likely be emergency appointments only (as first lockdown). I'm an optician, so will find out for sure next week
