I actually just did that today! I went in, had my eyes checked and then they had me look through a machine that changed the lenses in front of each eye to see which lens made my vision clearer. This is how they determine which prescription lens you are in each eye. Once that was done, I picked out frames and ordered my new glasses! :o) I'll get them in two weeks.

they will probably check too see if your eyes are healthy, then they'll shine some light into them, then you might have too get them dilated. you'll look at different cards untill you see one that's not blurry, then they'll either say you dont need glasses or make them or have them shipped in.
all depends how long its been since you have had eyes checked.
They will probably want to dilate your eyes so that they can see your eye easier. Then they look at them through a machine and you'll have to read several letters. Finally, they will tell you if you need glasses
if you think you need glasses go to the opticians, they will firstly take you in small room and blow air into each eye (not painful but shocking) that will measure the pressure behind your eye/inside the eye, then you wait until your called, and have a big machine over your face which changes the lenses (to see which is best for youre needs, IF needed) then they will shine a light in youre eye which checks to see if theres any swelling on the optic, then they ask you a few questions and then you go pick your glasses up :)
having an eye test should be part of everyones life and everyone needs one atleast once every 2 years
they detect the following: diabetes macular degeneration glaucoma Brain tumour high blood pressure Cardiovascular disease Eye cancer
