How long does an eye test take?

Question

I have had my eyes tested with yourselves about 14 months ago and would like them re-tested. How long will I be in with the optician for?

Answer Written answer:
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.

An eye test takes about 20 to 30 minutes. If you want to choose new glasses you need to allow more time, which depends on how quickly you can decide on a frame.
