They've taken their £14-£20 glasses and replaced the mediocre lenses with jam jar bottoms. If you click on 'lens upgrades' the original lenses and prices reappear, and there are virtually no thinner lenses available. Dreadful reviews for the company too on Google. On the whole, pretty much unsuitable for me as a glasses wearer - I'll stick to LensWay and Glasses Direct.

Think I will stick to Goggles4u.......been using them years and have never been dissapointed + Quidco too!
#3
I've bought from SelectSpecs on three occasions and must say the glasses are very good value for money. I'm not too careful with my glasses and seem to break them more than most so £6 ish per pair is a real bargain.

I recently ordered for Selectspecs. I got a regular pair of Okleys with the 1.67 lenses and am more than happy with them. I also ordered a pair of their £6 glasses at the same time just to see what they were like. They're not bad for £6 and will do as an emergency pair they came with the 1.56 lenses which weren't quite as fat as I was expecting considering I'm blind as a bat. Expect something round about the same quality as the cheap reading glasses you can get.

8)I have had four pairs of specs from these guys. Wearing one now. Great value, good quality, I recommend to everyone I know who wears glasses.

I've had many prescription pairs from SelectSpecs over the last 5 years including rimless. They've all been really good. So long as you're prepared to wait the 2 weeks for them to be made in China, they represent really excellent value that make a mockery of high street prices.

And you don't think the two things might be connected?... ;)

There was a program on tv a couple of weeks ago where they investigated the specs Market and basically showed that most high street shops are ripping off their customers with massive mark-ups
on lens and frames. A guy was so peeved at the cost for his specs that he contacted frame suppliers and could not believe how much they made them for and then the mark-up applied on lens which are mass manufactured for less than a pound and even specialist lens a pair are under ten pounds, the guy has now set up his own online specs shop to save people a fortune.

I got a pair from selectspecs but the arms were far too short despite having the correct number stamped on them.

I tried to straighten the metal arms a bit to make them wearable, but when I dipped them them into hot water to soften the plastic ends, the plastic melted and dripped off.

Waste of money...
#19
Like other cut price retailers, fine if everything goes right, terrible if there's even the slightest issue..

Like you, my 1st two pairs from them were fine. The 3rd pair though was not as described on their site, and that's were issues started. There customer service really is awful, and with no distance seller protection on glasses you can really be stuck. It took over trading standards and 6 months of effort to get my money back on them.

Only worth it if you can afford to just walk away from it if they're rubbish. (like £6 as a gamble for instance), but would stay away from their normal glasses.

Try using a hair dryer to warm up the plastic as opposed to hot water and you will have better luck.

The hot water was a last resort option anyway, the spectacle arms were so short that the ends rested on the top of my ears! The water I used was not scalding hot, it was "hot enough for a good shave".

Cost me less than 20 quid, lesson learnt!

Arrived today, absolutely fine. Amazing value for money - did take nearly the full 25 working days to turn up, but can't complain at that price. Awesome!
