I need a new pair of glasses and had a very quick look in Boots this morning. As usual my infallible radar for the most expensive item locked on to a very nice pair of Calvin Klein ones. But the price with lenses was £225.
I know you can get designer sunglasses online at a cheaper price and was wondering if anyone knows of any similar sites which do spectacles?
There is a lot more to getting glasses fitted correctly than trying on the frames. Amongst other things, the centre point of the lens should be measured to ensure it is in the correct place in relation to your pupils. I don't see how they can do that if you buy online.
Incorrectly fitted glasses can work out very expensive in terms of your optical health.
I personally went to BHS last year and bought a nice pair of sunglasses. The frame was really good and I took them to my opticians and had my prescription filled. they look great and saved me about £100.00. Its absolutely ridiculous the amount of money they charge for frames, which are after all, just a bit of plastic!!! Its a racket.
