Great price. But since the fitting is almost as important as the prescription for the lenses (particularly with bifocals or varifocals) it's difficult to see how ordering online can give anything like the same standard as buying somewhere that takes precise measurements and fits them to the individual.
Does it work in practice, though? I could be wrong on this. :|
Look at the end of the arms of your current glasses, the part tucked behind your ear. The measurements are printed there if they havnt rubbed off yet!
I tried that but couldn't see what was printed as I didn't have my glasses on. 8)

I did this last time, and it all went fine, though I do have a pretty basic prescription.

I got one pair tinted (£10 extra) so I had a pair of sunglasses for driving.

As mentioned, done this before but my prescription has changes slightly so two pairs for less than 20 quid delivered?
It would be rude not to

I'm sorry if I'm being incredibly dense here, I probably am :) , but with them being an online operation and hence not having the traditional in person fitting, how do they get to determine what prescription of lenses you require in the glasses?

Do you have to enter the details of your own prescription online? or do they have some means of measuring your vision online?, though I can't see how that would possibly work with the variety of screens and set ups people have.

Would be very interested in taking this offer up as my glasses are very old and somewhat scratched but I don't know where I put my original glasses prescription, not even sure if I got one included with my last two pairs actually....

I go to Tesco for a free eye test - worth going if you've not been for years as they can spot any other health issues that way.
I got my prescription printed out and have bought my glasses online like this for the past 5 years.
Enter your prescription details, measure your pupillary distance (tape measure or ruler in front of a mirror) - job done.

Will vouch for this company. Excellent customer service and sales process. Exchanged for a new pair of glasses because I didn't like the frames I had chosen.

Will buy again in future.

You should wait for the MSE voucher code that includes the free tints and delivery, get 2 pairs of sunglasses and save yourself £20, that what I usually do.

Great for basic glasses, but with my prescription (varifocal thin reactive) they are over 300 quid, so no cheaper than specsavers, especially if you factor in the 95 quid work gives me toward my glasses, but these guys don't accept the voucher.

Really interested in understanding what you mean here. Looking to get tint for driving. Is it £30 off plus money of tints or one or the other?

You're absolutely not wrong on this. Positioning of the eyes and nose causes the pupils to present at different distances from your pupil to the bridge of your nose on each side. While it's tempting to get a cheap pair or specs (or pair of pair of specs) I personally wouldn't risk it. The headaches aren't worth it :)
#17
I strongly recommend that the anti-glare and scratch resistance coatings are added. Unfortunately this takes the price up to £31
At Goggles4u the price will be £23.47 using the code BOGO. That will include the anti-glare and scratch resistance coatings and if you choose wisely it will also include sprung hinges.

Brilliant....can see something written there and I'm hoping these are the measurements. Wish I had a second pair of glasses and then I would be able to read these measurements in order to get a second pair free

How do you get your pupillary distance? Specsavers refused to give it to me. I feel like it needs to be precise

I had this problem too. Turned out it was because I was in mobile app mode on my Internet browser. If you request desktop site it checks out fine. For Android check the 3 dots in the top right hand corner of the screen and the option is near the bottom, hope this helps.
#25
You have to type in your prescription and then it is all dome for you. You can even upload a pic so you can see how they will look on you. Its basic but gives you an idea. I ow have 4 pairs of glasses from them - all basic lenses without any coating because it is cheaper to get new glasses then to get them coated!!!

PD does need to be accurate - if you had your sight test with spec savers, not sure why they wouldn't give it to you.

Just tell them you need to know it, as you are getting some custom lenses cut for your Oakley Flak jackets, and Oakley have asked you to get your PD from your optician.

if they say no then - time to change optician!
#27
I bought these last time the deal was on. The service was actually really good, delivery and quality of the glasses had no issues. Problem was that the fit wasn't amazing, I could bend the frames to fix that. But after an hour or two trialling them I could tell the prescription was a bit off (my fault I'm sure, not theirs). Luckily they had a return label in the bag and I had absolutely no trouble returning them and getting a refund.

Definitely worth the price, I think I was just unlucky!

I told them I found a really nice pair online and they need it. they said 'we don't give that information out' and that why I don't buy from the store instead
#30
Just do it yourself in a mirror to get your PD and you definitely need to change optician.

Btw I have used quidco on my order too and currently it's tracked.
#31
I got my pd slightly off once and as I had a medium to high prscription the glasss gave me headaches. I think glasses direct do free refunds but to save the hassle they also let you send them a pair of your old glasses from which they can take the exact pd measure. Pretty handy.
#32
Thanks. Bought a couple of pairs.
#33
So is the PD basically just the distance between your eyes or something else?

Was really excited for this but need an eye test first as I don't have my original prescription and it's getting on for 5 years old anyway, was hoping I could get a free eye test e.g. Tesco Opticians but the earliest appointment anywhere near me is 28th April by which time this deal will be long gone. What's the point of free eye tests if they don't have enough staff to do them :(

As I thought. Maybe OK for a very basic prescription, but the lack of anyone taking proper measurements, and providing a fitting/checking service afterwards would put me off. It's by no means unusual to have to send frames/lenses back to be remade, and if it's an all-in service that's never a problem.

Asda prices aren't so much more than these guys (and probably cheaper in some cases) and for that you get the full service. Specsavers, though, are far more expensive. They used to be cheap - now they're well known they're just profiteering.
#35
Is this for new customers only or anyone?

They're a great company, I managed to completely cock up my pupil distance and they fixed it for me quickly with no fuss

That prescription is way out of date anyway so you should get a new one, but they won't give you a pupil distance unless you buy glasses with them but if you send GD a pic of you with a credit card between your eyes they work it out for you.

A huge difference. I'm all for cheap glasses, and I'm no supporter of high-priced opticians, but the Pupillary Distance is critical if you're going to avoid problems using the spectacles. My big concern about all these online firms is that if there are any problems caused by the failure to take complete and accurate measurement, you're going to have a sub-standard pair of glasses, but possibly without being aware of the fact.
