If the wait is long, go check out one of the many good cafes in the area in the meantime.
We may move towards an appointment-only optical store in the future to better serve the needs of everyone, but this may take time, as we need to balance out being inclusive to our customers who may be less digital/mobile-savvy or are used to just dropping by.
If you wear contact lenses, you should remove them about one hour before the eye test to ensure accuracy of the prescription. If you prefer to come in with lenses, do note that you will have to rest your eyes after lens removal.
