In the last few years I bought frames and lenses online (Glasses Direct) because they were cheaper than the high street and still of decent quality, but now I need varifocals and Glasses Direct won't accept a prescription without pupillary distance certified by an optician. I have a prescription from Vision Express and that doesn't include pupillary distance, nor they would give it to me unless I buy from them. VE wants to charge me £69 only for the lenses.
Can I find any cheaper on the high street?
I've read that Asda will sell varifocals for as little as £40. Is that true and what quality should I expect?
Any other suggestions?
