Pretty Funky £25 Frame Selection At Specsavers (Free Frame + Single Vision Lenses If Eligible For NHS Voucher)

This is an FYI more than anything. The cheapest frame selection Specsavers carry are £25 - the frames + lens are completely free if you're eligible for NHS vouchers and have an uncomplicated prescription (ie, not bifocals/varifocals etc).

I normally buy from Goggles4U as the cheap selection is usually not to my taste - as it wasn't last week, but Specsavers seem to have new frames in!

I went for the Cat Eye pair, the maroon frames, third pair down - also seventh pair down. The Black Cat Eye pair above them (second frames down) are nice too - these weren't there yesterday so I assume they're are quite new, and there's a few other new ones.

Picture from Trongate, Glasgow this afternoon (Womens' Styles)3176334.jpgSpecsavers are actually advertising these cat-eye £25 frames at the moment, (the frame I chose) on a bus shelter near the store!3176334.jpgWith me, I paid £36.50 on top for varifocal lenses (my close-up sight is going a bit these days), but as mentioned if you have an NHS voucher and uncomplicated prescription with the £25 frames, they won't cost a thing.

Edit: More of the £25 Womens' selection:

Womens £25 range: specsavers.co.uk/gla…:44

Mens' £25 range: specsavers.co.uk/gla…:44

Edit: As promised, here's the Mens' in store £25 collection(s). The Mens' look a bit samey, maybe this changes as well:3176334.jpg3176334.jpg

Nice. I like the black second one. Will check my local. Thank you
This reminded me I need another pair so I got another £17 pair of Animal glasses from Specky4Eyes who were pretty quick on delivery last time to be fair. Extra 4 or 5 squids for P&P. Deal on HukD The frames with the straight arms are great
Asda- starting from £45 which includes varifocal lens with anti-reflective coating and thinner lenses (depending on your prescription)

It was finding (cheap) frames I liked that was the problem, but I don't have an Asda close enough by to see what they offer.

Think this is the Asda Womens' cheapest selection here if anyone is curious, though
Mens' (Asda) Value selection here

Again, the offerings in your Asda store may be different.

As promised, added the Mens' £25 frames to the original post - also more of the Womens' £25 offerings. Still from the Trongate, Glasgow store.
Specsavers are rip-off merchants in our experience. They knew the prescription (they did the test) and from our choice of frame, started off saying "2 pairs of those for £200. But then kept adding another £50/£100 when they "remembered" all the details of the prescription (which they had in their hand when making the original quote) till it reached nearly £500 for ONE pair; then said "sorry, can't order them without speaking to the manufacturer" - there'll be an additional cost implication....". They thought they saw us coming....... they certainly saw us going.....
Went to Asda and got the same prescription and almost identical frames for £89, where the quotes are genuinely inclusive of most "additions" charged as extra at Specsavers
I have a receipt for my purchase (mentioned above). There were no hidden charges yesterday (when I purchased my varifocals).

No hard sell, either. No problem giving me my prescription for internet ordering (the Tesco Optician a few years ago was notably snotty when I was honest) and they happily adjust my glasses, no matter where I've purchased them from.

Maybe it depends on your store, but I think my local Specsavers is great.

I picked up my Maroon Cat Eyes last week - my first Varifocals.

Was a bit alarmed when I saw the yellow pen markings all over the lenses - but the assistant cleaned them off with alcohol. I can now read close up without having to put my glasses at the very end of my nose

I also ordered Varifocals from Goggles4U - though my experience with them was half good/half bad, already mentioned here

Bit disappointed G4U removed my review (it was there for a few hours) but I've shopped with them for years and their customer service is great - second time lucky, I hope.
