Now I know there are loads of "cheap" glasses deals everywhere, but if you're like me, you'll find that the deals just don't apply to you.
I have a moderately high prescription and I therefore always need at least the thin lenses, but usually have the super-thin lenses
On the basis of needing the super-thin lenses, I am often looking at between £60 and £150 extra PER PAIR, meaning that the normal "2 pairs for £99" offers actually work out at 2 pairs for between £229 and £399
ASDA will give you free thinner lenses depending on your prescription.
You also get the following free add-ons:
- Anti-Reflective Coating
- Scratch Resistant Coating
They'll also add on polarised, light-reactive or driving tints for only £40
My prescription qualifies me for the super-thin lenses (next one up from extra-thin), so I make quite a substantial saving.
This is NOT a deal if your prescription is low, however, this is a MASSIVE deal if your prescription is high
*** EDIT ***
Based on some information I've found online, the "free thinner lenses" is worked out as follows (also taking into account CYL)
- 1.6 for up to -5.00
- 1.7 for -5.00 to -7.50
- 1.74 for anything over
It may not be 100% correct, so please check with your local branch.
Also, for those with an extremely high prescriptions, please speak to a qualified optician as those with prescriptions over -10 may be better getting glass lenses.
