    A guy in my opticians told me that 16 was the last time I could get my glasses for free (because of the NHS) but I remember reading many times on NHS forms how I'm entitled to so-and-so if I'm under 19 and in full time education. On my opticians website site it says that if under 19 etc I can get a free eye test. But does this mean that regardless I don't get free glasses anymore? Because it's unfair that they didn't tell me this in advance and then am suddenly told I need to pay for them from now on.
