That looks a good site (pardon the pun).
Friend of ours is an orthoptrist which, I am reliably informed, is different from an optician. She works in hospitals with people with double vision or lazy eyes....anyway, she told us that opticians have sales targets for frames that means that many prescriptions are unnecessary. I have to admit to being genuinely shocked when she told us. But then again I'm quite naive.

I spent 20 + yrs working for Topcon - 2 of those for the ophthalmic division servicing slit lamps/tonemeters diagnostic kit etc and while working in their workshops doing the servicing - VE/Boots/specsavers etc, you soon learn it is a business! They diagnose a small prescription change EVERY time and recommend new frames/lenses. Then up sell the costings/tints etc. I did one VE store once where the kit hadn't been serviced for years - they couldn't even measure existing lenses accurately so was easy to up sell. I would NEVER go to a chain and always use an independent that is recommended. They are a business still but have more of a customer focus (sic).

I use Goggles4U which I have found to be a little higher quality than Optical4less. :)
