    I went to Specsavers the other day to have an eye exam - free, as a member of AA (the car one). Luckily they found out that I have the very beginnings of glaucoma, and have astigmatism. I do need reading glasses and I got 2 prs for $169 which I thought was very reasonable. They do basic glasses, from $60.

    Gosh. That's quite a price difference!! Great you had the exam, too, and they caught the glaucoma. I think a lot of people avoid having eye tests because of the cost, goodness knows how many people walk around with serious eye diseases without knowing it until it's too late.

    I had wondered why there was a lot of hip talk.

  • Geoff Lealand,

    What the hell is happening here? Next thing, we will be discussing adult nappies--as advertised in a deeply depressing interlude in Call The Midwife*on TV One on Sunday night. Apparently you can get them in different colours.
