Had to replace contact lenses and ended up in a new place because the usual was out of my power. Apparently some places are doing like the Americans and requiring you to test your eyes with them before they’ll sell you contacts – even if you’ve already been tested elsewhere. I suppose it’s useful for people who might have faulty info but it’s rather annoying when you’re in a hurry and there’s a long waiting line for eye tests.
Anyway, Don Gomes Optical Services on Brickdam did not make such a fuss (although they checked my glasses and had me do a quick read of the fine print on the wall) and the place itself was quite a treat. While Mr Gomes was getting my lenses, I pulled out my phone and took a few quick snaps. I was later assured – whilst washing my hands over a bucket outside – that the place was getting upgraded soon but I rather like the way it is currently.
