I had a free eye test with a voucher in D&A last week (saving myself 27.50) so i went back today to see what glasses i would like. I picked out frames tagged at £89. The shop assistant told me i then needed to add lenses to this price and i also wanted reaction coating. Total cost (some of you may want to sit down - i wish i'd had a chair) £240!! for 1 pair of glasses. just normal lenses aswell.
Needlesss to say i made a hasty exit and went down the high street to Specsavers. They are doing a 2 for 1 offer on all frames above £75 up to £125. The price tag on their actual glasses are for frames and lenses- unlike D&A.
I left Specsavers after ordering 2 pairs of glasses 1 pair £99 with reaction lenses an extra £49 and a spare pair at £75 with a free ultra tough coating on them.
2 pairs of glasses for £148 - Done ! Therefore saving me over £100 and I got an extra pair free.
I know- Should have gone to Specsavers in the first place!!
Have any other specs wearing people out there had the same shock i had to day?!!
