Just got an email saying:
We're now able to offer an exclusive range of Single Vision prescription glasses for just £5 for Full Rimmed and £8 for Semi-Rimless frames, but that's not all... We firmly believe in not hiding any hidden costs for highly recommended 'optional extras' so each pair in our cheap glasses range includes a FREE scratch resistant coating, full UV protection and anti-reflection treatment!

We strongly believe you will be hard pushed to find a better value pair of glasses complete with UV, Anti-Reflection and Scratch Resistant coatings anywhere else, so get your order in quickly as availability is limited*.

*Offer limited to 2 Super Saver Items per order. While stocks last.

What did the four (now inaccessible) comments say when this was listed later?

I bought two pairs at this price when they last had this offer. The glasses are as good as any costing far more. The delivery however is very slow. It would be better if the company were honest and explained that the glasses have to come from the far east and it will take weeks. They were however very quick to take the money.

I would agree with above comments, my glasses were delivered today (14th)having been ordered on 2nd July, I was surprised to see that the package had come from Hong Kong, nowhere on their site does it mention overseas, that is not to say that I am dissatisfied with the glasses in any way......

They were an extended chat on the double posted nature of this offer...

I can also agree that there postage times are TERRIBLE. I ordered a set in mid December, which didn't come until 3 weeks after there stated delivery time (the day before they could report them 'missing' to royal mail.)

Unfortunately this is where the tale turns sour. The glasses were not as described on their website and with no Distance Selling Regs to fall back on (it doesn't apply to tailor made goods & therefore any prescription glasses...) I was left with a long slog through trading standards to get the cash back.

I have got the money back now, but it took 6 months, loads of emails, letters and a home visit from trading standards, to get it.

At £8.50, it might be worth a punt, but would caution spending huge amounts with them after this experience.

Cheap glasses from China, hence cheap prices and SLOW delivery. Cold IMO - not worth spending the money on.

Pay an extra ten or twenty quid and use Glasses Direct - UK Based, largest optical dispenser in the world now. Great British Entrepreneurs!
