I ordered my prescription glasses from Goggles4u.com and was a bit weary because of the price. However, I have now received my order and all I can say is WOW!

- Go through Quidco to get 5% discount (http://www.quidco.com/goggles4u/) - they actually switch amount from dollars to pounds so discount is greater.

- Choose any frames

- Enter your prescription details, all Lenses come with free Antiglare, UV and Scratch Free coating

- Enter voucher 'glasses' which gives you 5% off. That will leave price at $24.69 (£12.50)


I had my eye test at Vision Express and was quoted £160ish for the thinner 1.67 plastic lenses with the price of frames on top (so would have cost me well over £200 ). Instead I jumped on Goggles4u and paid $50.46 (£26.41) through PayPal for the more 1.67 thinner plastic lenses with coating and Bendable Memory Titanium frames. £2.52 is being tracked through quidco so total price equals £23.89. Delivery took about 2 weeks (i chose free delivery) and it comes with glasses case, cleaner cloth, extra screws and extra nose piece things. All in all, very impressed! Saved me £180

Enjoy!

This looks fantastic. I need new glasses and was on the look-out for a good deal. Voted hot.
#2
Voted hot. I've used goggles4u for over 3 years & found them excellent. Don't forget to ask your optician for your PD (pupillary distance) when having your eyes tested - you need this when filling out your prescription on-line. :-D
#3
My family have used them a number of times - they are great, extremely cheap and excellent quality.

I can buy glasses for £12 which would cost over £200 in rip-off Britain.

HOT deal.

Must admit my experience with them was a disaster. They sent some jam jar bottoms instead of my normal fairly mild corrective glasses. (I scanned my full prescription and e-mailed it, so no excuse).
Absolutely impossible to return them and when things go wrong they don't reply to any e-mails.
Well, I do have a pair of comedy glasses for a 'Nerd Night' or a Red Dwarf 'Duane Dibbly' convention. :p
So be prepared to get wrong glasses or lose your money. For the price it's maybe worth a gamble to you..

Thats the opposite to what happened to me recently.

They sent a pair and there was a fault on the frame (this is about my 10th pair from them). I emailed them, got a reply less than 12 hours later offering either to keep them as a spare pair and get 25% off another set, or if they were too badly damaged they would send me another pair free as long as I donated the broken pair to one of the charitys that deal in glasses.

Anything above and beyond a very mild prescription and you're better off not using these guys. If you have astigmatism or severe myopia then it's a totally false economy. I sent them my prescription (including PD measurement) both times I used them. The first pair of glasses were badly aligned and when I returned them, they came back even worse. I gave them the benefit of the doubt though, and tried them again. Once again, a complete waste of time and money.

For very mild prescriptions I'm sure they're probably fine, but for anything else, steer clear. Spend a bit more money and buy them from an optician over here, who will ensure that the specs you buy are perfectly calibrated before you leave the shop.

I get my glasses from [url]www.optical4less.com[/url] and find i get a professional service and cheap. No problems over the last 6 years.

See this review [url]www.eyeglassretailerreviews.com/optical4less2.htm[/url]

My eye sight is pretty bad and i have found them fine.
#11
Must confess that I ordered 2 pairs from them last year and wasn't hugely impressed... The frames were nice enough (although always difficult to see what they'll be like from a photo), but the prescription just felt slightly 'off'. One pair gave me headaches, the other was just a bit uncomfortable. I've got quite a strong prescription.
#12
Myself and my daughter have astigmatism and require a heavy prescription. They have been spot on each of the four times we have used them.

I now have prescription sunglasses, photocromic glasses and some stadard lenses - all for less than £40. Fantastic.

The wife took the plunge and ordered a pair from Goggles4u, arrived the other week. Well packaged[albeit oddly, encased within a polysterene box & canvas sack], a robust glasses case and a cleaning cloth were also included. Note your glasses actually come from Karachi, Pakistan.

The worry/fear of distance buying glasses was unfounded, the prescription lens was spot on and the frame wasn't the worst either, very impressed she was when you equate the $50.46 [26.41] cost against what you would pay locally. The glasses were the 1.67 thinnest lens, ideal for those with a strong prescription.

There's a 15% discount for returning customers/re-orders, order as usual then email Goggles4u requesting your discount, 15% gets credited back to your card apparently, the nfo is on the site anyway.

Before she opted to buy from Goggles4u we trawled up a few discount glasses retailers online, no doubt there's many more, might save someone some time, urls below...

i have used them also. strangly one pair makes my eyes go funny yet the rest are ok. great value.
#15
Note as well... If you dont want to take a risk on getting bad lenses there's no reason why you cant buy a pair of cheap frames online and take them into spec savers to have lenses put in.

This is what I've done in the past as I was able to get a pair of really nice designer style frames for less than the cost of the bog standard spec savers ones.
#16
I bought some rimless sunglasses and standard glasses from them back in August. When cleaning the normal glasses one of the lenses cracked! I emailed them and they are sending out a new pair of my choice for $10. I have found their service rather good and even though this pair have broken I'll give them another chance as they do have good customer service with reasonable response to emails (within 48 hours).
#17
is it easy to do your own pupillary distance? I've just had an eye test and I don't have mine.
#18
I got my other half to do mine.

#19
What an odd measurement. That tells you to measure from the outside of your right pupil to the inside of your left. What I also find odd is that that measurement will change depending on light conditions / how dialated your pupil is.
#20
The PD is the measurement between the centre of the pupils. Measuring from the inside of one pupil to the outside of the other is equivalent and easier to do.

Hi, ordered mine a few days ago. Used codes from here for free delivery and 15 per cent off. Might want to add these to the original post. Hope they help.

Mine are fine. Used them a few times and they alwasy deal with any issues very quickly and offer a great service. Nobody has mentioned the best bit, your glasses arrive in a little hand sticthed bag that looks like something from an Indiana Jones movie. Has cloth stamps and hand written address, then sealed with red wax. WAY COOL!
#23
No wonder they are so cheap, do they pay their workers 3p an hour?

Equivalent to Specsavers wages here. :thinking:
#25
What type of hinges do they have on these glasses?
#26
Just my opinion but with it being your eyes that you will only ever have one pair of, go to the opticians. You get what you pay for and that includes after service of your specs etc.:)

not really that great service from them is it?
considering the goods were faulty on delivery in both instances, they have to by law exchange or give a full refund, without the little clauses they gave you
not to mention the distance selling regulations, if they weren't to your liking you could've got a refund under that law.
#28
I pretty much destroyed my glasses so i don't have the measurements of the fames. How would i go about finding the right measurements for my head?!
#29
So can I just pop into my local Celtic Vision/Spec Savers, ask for an eye test, get my prescription/PD measurement & then have the cheek to walk out & get my glasses/lenses from these guys?

How much will an eye test cost me BTW?
#30
I've used Ispectacle before. great pair of oakley glasses for £92 with all the coatings, third the price of highstreet opticians.
Also tried Site91. They are totally usless, I gave them 3 chances to get right, then went to Ispectacle.
#31
Your entitled to one free eyetest funded by NHS every 2 years (I think it's 2 years). There's no problem getting given your prescription and going elsewhere. You're entitled to.

I always get eyetest somewhere like Vision Express and go to Tesco for frames as I work there and so get staff discount and get them when they're buy one get one free. Plus I know the staff so totally trust them on what suits me! I've a small face so most glasses to wide for me.

Used to get eyetest at Tesco too til the guys we have in our store now.. they're rubbish. I was in and out of my last one within 5 minutes!! Went to Vision Express a week later and got done and the prescription was different, and believe that one was more accurate.

Most places don't measure PD on the eyetest, they only measure it if you actually order/buy glasses.

There's nothing wrong with just having an eye test... it's what you are paying for! specsavers are £16-20 i think.
It's just under 16's and over 60's that get it free, well, and some others.

When you all buy a pair of glasses, don't you need to have them adjusted to fit your face? How do you go about doing that...bend the glasses yourself?

Not so for us poor English, most of us have to pay ! If you join the Boots Health Club, which is free, you will get a Free Eye test .

I've used them twice before and I'm happy with the service. For £12.50 you can't really complain. I've got a really strong prescription and it costs me a small fortune to get glasses on the high street - at least £100 more if I want the lenses thinned down. Last time I bought two pairs of glasses from Specsavers, it came to £347 including eye test. They took almost a month to get them to me. The first pair fell apart within a year, the second pair was starting to fall apart as well.

The way I look at it, what is £12.50 in comparison to what I have spent and been dissatisfied? I can buy more than 20 pairs of glasses at goggles4u with what I spent at Specsavers. If they fall apart within a year - so what? Price is no guarantee of longevity. Additionally goggles4u manages to get my glasses to me quicker than all the high street branches with the exception of vision express and this was with free delivery.

Yup. For those of us north of the border, a full eye examination (which goes above and beyond a simple eye test) is free once every two years.

Hi, I’m 60 and have just been prescribed glasses for the first time (1.25) are these glasses superior to those I might buy at the supermarket?
#40
I have used this company several times - TOP quality and superb value - others may appear to match their price (online sellers) BUT they don't include all the coatings - many other online sellers charge £10 for each coating but this firm include anti scratch, anti glare and UV for free.

The last pair I ordered were glass lens photochromic as that is the cheapest option for the self darkening type but they sent me the more expensive plastic lens.
