Q: Where can I get my eyes checked/ buy glasses in Beijing

Are the eye exam and glasses fittings as expensive as abroad?
Are all glasses shops about the same or is there a particularly good one I should go to?

any or most places selling glasses and contact lenses will check your eyes and prescribe the correct ones to use, and sell them to you.

Mingjingyuan is the place to go for glasses. It's the "glasses meca" of Beijing. Here's an article about it: http://www.echinacities.com/beijing/city-life/four-eyes-on-mingjingyuan-navigating-beijing-s-glasses.html

My glasses and exam cost me about 550 yuan (roughly $85 American), maybe just slightly cheaper than America.  But I'm not in Beijing, in Harbin.

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept an employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer won't respect the contract later on. -- icnif77
