Advice on buying glasses/spectacles online

Hi,

Have any of you purchased prescription glasses online? If so, can you recommend any websites or let me know of any to avoid? Also, we're you happy with the final product, the quality of the lenses and the fitting?

I was looking at this pair, gun metal option, on http://specsdirect2u.co.uk/productdetails.php?catid=38&mcatid=&proid=852

I have seen this site mentioned in Which magazine. The cheapest I've seen in a store is £150 at Vision Express, without lenses.

I've seen these frames cheaper on other sites but have worries about fake products.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've used these before. Good service, quick and not a rip-off. You can even go and visit if you live close enough (Wallasey, Wirral)

Selectspecs.com are good ordered a pair from them on the 18th last month they turned up on the 9th of this month. Based in Kent, glasses shipped from Hong Kong. Prescription is spot on also.

They do have a range of designer stuff also but I just picked up a cheap pair of rimless glasses, and cost just over 32 quid shipped which I thought was good

Just re read your comment, on select specs it gives u dimensions to the glasses so u can match up with your current size, but also when u receive them they say u can take them to ur local optician who should be able to fit them for you for free or for a small charge, I would assume the latter though

Recently bought mine from Glasses Direct. Really pleased with the glasses and service, often got good deals on to.

Thanks for the replies, guys.

I'll take a proper look at the spex4less.com when I get a minute. Sounds like a quality service from what I read on the home page. Never heard of sites offering a replacement or refund if you make a mistake in the ordering process!

I used [url]www.optical4less.com[/url] - they are very cheap especially for rimless glasses. There is an article giving advice and listing lots of different suppliers on the moneysavingexpert.com website...

I used to pay £150+ for just my lenses with frames on top. Paid under £35, BRILLIANT!

Just ordered a few pairs from them too, couldn't argus with them for the price, I paid £8 plus p&p for these and it includes scratch resistant coating and anti-reflection which I paid specsaver £30 for.

Hello, Dave,

I have used Spex4less before too and can only sing their praises - not just for their value but, and equally or more imprtantly, their customer service. They even replaced my glasses FREE when I put the wrong prescription information in with my order!

Also - on a separate matter, they sent me an email earlier on in the month where you can win a couple of pairs of Emporio Armani prescription sunglasses. Here's the page web address : http://www.spex4less.com/tellafriend.shtml

You'll not get much liquid refreshment in those glasses.
