Yes, this is a common offer from them but after looking at the glassesdirect deal for glasses for my daughter they start at £49 and look very adult. There are some really cute kids frames on goggles4u and her last pair from them are now 2 years old so lasted well.
There are the usual few exceptions ie not including designer frames but just select frames from 'buy one get one free' category and use code BOGO or they also have a 30% off storewide code 30OFF

Only prescription lenses are provided free, they have a voucher to a set value which often frames offered in stores exceed. My daughter has yellow tints that help her dyslexia (Irlens / colourimetry) which are not covered by the NHS but specsavers wanted £200 for the tint! Goggles4u can not guarantee a colour match but a dark yellow tint costs £4.95 and the last pair has helped her immensely also by buying them totally myself I am not using NHS money.

Unfortunately these are 99p quality frames. Ok for spares or back up

Rubbish, probably made in the same factory as £69 ones from specsavers. I bought a couple of pairs from this company about 2 years ago and still going strong, the lens coatings are also lasting well. If they were 99p then I don't think they would have lasted as well. If it makes you feel better to pay more then go ahead

The days when I paid over the odds in UK shops are long gone. But I wait for the Specs4Less branded frames deals.

Who quoted you £200 from Specsavers? We got a quote within last 3 weeks & tints were £40

Nope not true, where do you think Specsavers etc buy their frames from?

My RIMLESS glasses with photoreaction coating, anti scratch & anti reflection cost me £20 2 years ago and they're still completely perfect.

I have no idea. I don't buy glasses from them

Purchased some two months ago, still going strong. they are good for the price.

I am pretty sure that they are not allowed to dispense glasses to under 16's. Also a standard tint and a tint found by colorimetry are not the same thing.

Yeah I've got 4 pairs from Googles 4 U - first two were a bit off - looked rather diff from photos and sizing didn't match, but optically good. They immediately offered me another two pairs of my choice to the same value to replace them..... I then forgot about this for over a year, emailed them sheepishly, and they still chose to honour it!

I'm wearing one of the second (free) pair right now - they've happily been my main glasses for a couple of years now!

Great service and great products, certainly superior to the cheap end of the big UK brands. What really get's me is the extras - these are transitions, anti scratch, anti reflect and thin and light, and were BOGOF £38 for two pairs (the others polycarbonate rimless) - those additions alone would cost well over £100 at any UK optician - not counting the price of the actual glasses!

Most of the frames cost the opticians either very little or nothing. They are usually provided the frames for free by the lens manufacturers. Opticians will be using one supplier of lenses and make massive mark up s on the coatings - tint? polaroid? scratch resistance? thin glass?

A typical frame including lens costs around £10 to the optician. The rest is mark up for their services.

These guys use a loophole to circumvent the UK laws about supplying U16s.
There are many good reasons that it's illegal to supply glasses to kids without being properly measured, fitted, checked and overseen by a professional. I'd far rather pay a little more than risk permanently damaging my child's eyesight. you should look in to this fully before buying them...but it's cheap.

were they tints as in sunglasses or coloured? the ones I was offered was after I had paid for a colourimetry test and were a dark yellow 'special' lenses.

Get all my specs from these guys. Always top notch for the price
Edited by: "lostboybinns" 31st Oct

I have ordered from these guys before - and never been disappointed. I've just used the 30OFF code and got a pair off glasses delivered for £8.81. the usually come with a case and cleaning cloth too.
These will be occasional glasses and who can complain at that cost.............. not me

How do I get the pupil measurements from my eye test?

I've seen dogs wearing coats and umbrellas but glasses?

Anyone care to comment on what the prices are like with thinned lenses?

just put 65 (if you are of the normal size)

There's a link on how to do it on the website. (But most people are 65)

Maybe the £6.95 frames are, but I've found G4U often get frames that Zenni Optical stock for much more. I spent £35 all-in on these two recently (the BOGO code). I have a medium prescription and got coatings as well. The Grey frames of these are quite nice but they go in and out of stock.

32346823-ePbBz.jpgG4u40 (40% off) is another active code worth trying.

Here's me wibbling on about G4U versus Zenni about two years ago, some links won't work now, though hotukdeals.com/com…841

Only thing I will say is that shipping for mine was a bit longer than usual, usually they get to me within 10 days - this time it was 22 days! (Though me ordering the wrong frame and asking on Live Chat to change it, within a few hours, might have delayed things).

Also, for Goggles4U being so cheap, their customer service is excellent. Any issues I've had, they usually shipped me a replacement pair. Last I heard, Zenni only offered a partial refund (and they're more expensive than G4U!).

Lol. That is like saying most women are a size 10. A PD can vary vastly from one individual to another and getting it wrong can give you an inferior visual outcome (eg double vision).

Any designer frames deals going on? Thanks

I thought that according to the College of Optometrists Guidance for professional practice. Regulation A258, fitting of childrens glasses must be overseen by a qualified practitioner, namely a dispensing optician, optometrist or ophthalmic medical practitioner. Not sure how this works if you buy online?I recently had to get glasses for a 5 year old, the NHS voucher covered a couple of pairs free in most of the high street places, just an extra little bit to pay for designer frames. We have been back to the shop about 3 times in as many months for various free of charge repairs and replacements so also not sure how that would work buying online?

Do they do designer glasses? Seems to take me to a blank page when I select designer

I agree Ive bought glasses from them. Which can last more than a year. Honestly the quality is as good as expensive ones. Depends on how much you want to pay. Which is still 100x cheaper
