It seems that adults in full time education (meaning young students that are still dependent on their parents) and not claiming any benefits are not included in any references in this instance. Suddenly a parent who used to get free eye tests and glasses for their children has to pay full prices as soon as they hit 19. Is this the right assumption? My son is still in college (his last year) and is now 19. Do I have to pay full prices for him? Is there some special student rate or something? He is overdue for an eye test and whilst I am ok with the cost of this, it is the cost of new glasses that I am worried about. I would appreciate someone in the know advising me as I am clueless.
