I'm not applying but have done work experience in an opticians and it wasn't particularly difficult, I'd suggest contacting some places that aren't the big chains, like run by one optician and have one shop, that would probably be easiest as that's what I done

Just a local one that is most likely hundreds of miles from where you are

I'd recommend actually going into the shop and talking to them, much more likely to say yes then, just ask if you can help out in the shop and stuff, make it seem like you will help them and they won't have to go out their way for you

That's what I done but I did get to sit in on a couple eye tests at a point

Oh right thanks, yeah I think I'll try that but some of them just say you will have tp speak to head office and give me a number. I've done a weeks work experience in a hospital and do volunteering at a society for Blind and Partially Sighted People. Do you think that will be enough?

Either chemistry, biochemistry or biological science, perhaps a bit of each
