I'm a contact lens wearer so hardly ever wear my specs but DD has just broken my only pair so I need to replace them. Where should I look?
I got 2 pairs for £99 at vision express. They also have economy ones too cheaper than that for one pair.
YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE TO SPECSAVERS
YOU WOULD OF HAD A SPARE PAIR
on the internetm will look for address, bought my bed glasses from this site for £25 (could have got a pair for £15) and they are great. Prescription right etc. Now going to look for site for you...
dh told me of an online shop that some mate of Prince Harry's (I think) has set up, go to an optician, choose a pair and look on the website and they send to you at a fraction of the price
Will ask if he can remember name
aha just googled
I saw that ASDA have opticians now - somewhere else to try when DD's prescription changes.
Yes, that's them, fab
Actual site cheapglasses hope this works
Fabulous! Thanks! You can even upload a photo of yourself and 'try on' the specs!
ooohh hadn't tried that!
Are these online shops as good as the high street for service/fitting? When DD gets hers they always measure her eyes/nose bridge etc. Is that not necessary?
I have only used them for my bed glasses, I don't think I would trust for ds1. But if were buying to wear out, i would measure, as they do give the measurements, you could try against other glasses i suppose
Maybe it's like shoes - ok when you've stopped growing - had a stable prescription etc.
I see you can also order 'trial' pairs at a fee of £4 per pair and try them on at home
I think Specsavers have an online service too
Just checked - Specsavers do offer glasses online, but they start at £30 (twice the price of Glasses Direct) and their cheapest styles aren't as good as GD's I'd say
deegward/CD: thanks so much for the tip about glassesdirect - ordered a pair for £25 and they're fab! It must be the cheapest place by far
I love this place you find out so much info!
