    Nope, they just ask what it is, heh.

    As long as you don't look like a 45yr old woman I don't think you'll have any problems

    There's such thing as a certificate?

    Last year I needed to pick up a prescription and showed them my NUS Associate Card and that was it.

    better safe than sorry. Im sure they would need some form of ID otherwise everyone will be claiming free eye checks because they are all students...

    You give them your address, so they (ie the government, not the optician) can check whether you were telling the truth!
