Her eye care is free.
Avoid lenses like these, Daysoft, etc. Made from Hydrogel, a material designed in the 1960's. Poor comfort, very poor oxygen transmissibility, high risk of problems, ulcers, etc. If you value your eyes, look for lenses made from Silicone Hydrogel. Much better comfort, vastly improved oxygen transmissibility, many are UV protecting, much less risks to your eyes. Pretty much all modern contact lenses (eg Coopervision, Acuvue, etc.) available at reputable opticians will be made from Silcone Hydrogel. Very good deals in Specsavers, Vision Express, etc. as mentioned above (also available affordably online). As with everything, you get what you pay for...
That's fair, probably not the best opening line! I guess what I meant was there is not always a saving buying online. Unless your wife's eye test and contacts check combined cost less than 31.44. Most opticians charge more than that as far as I know. So once again for me buying daily disposables online would cost me more than buying from specsavers if I total up everything. However, I can see some contacts probably are cheaper online, but I feel the majority of contacts are pretty reasonably priced in the all inclusive packages with the major players on the high street.
I got all that, but I was quoting your opening line, "I cant understand why people buy online" and cited a reason. That aside, apart from the free pair of glasses up to £45, I dont see what the wife misses out on. She has her annual eye-tests for glasses & contacts done by a local independent optician who she's used for years. The only real difference being she chooses to buy her daily disposables online instead, and save money in the process. I suppose her shout would be "I cant understand why people dont buy online" Lol, each to their own. The bottom line being as long as you are happy with your eyes, regardless of what route you go down, that's all that really matters. Her eyesight must be tip top, she misses nothing. (annoyed)
That didn't take long lol £15.99 is a crap price. £14.75 at Tesco and (IIRC) Specsavers.
Price has increased to £15.99 per box
Thanks just ordered for myself
****, seems I didn't complete my order, even though I'm 99% sure I did and the specs I wanted are gone now :(
ordered another pair came in a week wearing them now 10 times better than a pair I paid £150 for brilliant best £9 I have ever spent ta op lensway and hukd x
Mine got damaged in transit
Just received my shipping details. Currently sitting in Memphis, Tennessee apparently. Don't understand how they can do this for £6.30, but not complaining :)
I am still waiting, it says on FedEx website that it was in UK on 30th April and delivery schedule 3rd May. Let's see. I never ordered specs online ever and pd was allmost a guess too as measuring your own pupil distance is not so easy. Fingers crossed hope all is well, and they fit ok.
my two pairs have just arrived from Lensway - really impressed. I need to order some prescription sunglasses- googles4u or lensWay ?
Go away fool, my comment was nothing to do with football and warranted. This is my last word on this, ciao!
There's no room for unfairly criticising another poster for asking a legitimate question, especially when it seems your comments are more to do with u supporting a rival football team. Regardless of how many deals I've posted I will always step in to defend an innocent poster on here, because I want to protect the good natured spirit that has made HUKD more than just a deals website, it's a great online community of people helping people. My comments are 99% of the time deal focused, sadly on rare occasions I have to make a stand against wind up merchants or those with unjustified prejudice as I am evidently doing so now.
Yep, to add to my collection!
yep thats the ones lol did you get a little keyring screwdriver?
Yes, 3 or 4 times and I am really pleased. I pay on average about £5.00 a pair. Only need reading glasses and the "ugliest "ones are the most comfortable. I spend all day staring at various monitors and don't get eye strain. Biggest optical problem I have had is a high street chain, didn't do glaucoma test, told me to re book, sold me glasses though and then I couldn't get a booking for weeks and gave up. Went into a supermarket optician the following year and they tested my eyes twice because when they tested the glasses from the super dooper high street optician, it turned out the lenses were the wrong way round. Shouldn't have gone to...
Just ordered 2 pairs for £19 delivered. hope to get 12% quidco too. Thanks OP, hot deal.
In context: I assume it is two pairs of glasses which obvsly lessens the impact, but yes, even from the commercial viewpoint it does beg the q of where is the profit and also suggests there is a huge margin available to the UK high street outlets that charge considerably more for similar outcome.
Just checked the FedEx tracking. Glasses coming from Burnaby in British Columbia, travelled to Vancouver, then to Memphis. For a pair of £9 glasses with free delivery?! That's some hefty carbon footprint!
have you called their CS regarding this? i just ordered on thursday and have a fedex tracking number for delivery on monday already.
Actually be careful with lensway, still waiting for glasses ordered on 17/01/14 :/
That's good to know, but sadly I broke the frame. Was going to do laser eye treatment. Did my homework & there can be some quite bad lasting effects. Put me right off... Luckily I did not act before thinking for once
you can take your own frames into specsavers and they charge 39.99 to re glass them with your prescription, there are lens thinning options which are extra, if you get contacts with them you can have your own frames done for free instead of a free pair, I've just taken a pair of Raybans in to be done as they dont stock them.
I not long spoke to them & they do 3 types of lenses. Not quite sure how accurate that would be. Will look in to it later.
seems really expensive to me : Focus DAILIES 30 Pack - £13.99 per pack these are only £9 a box in asda!!
I got mine last week from getlenses.co.uk they were slightly cheaper for my lenses and came with a carry bag and contact lens storage box,free delivery too!
My usual site is contactlenses.co.uk (their "budget dailies" Crystal are really good: http://www.contactlenses.co.uk/details787_167.html (£7.50 per box, less if you buy more), or DaySoft. Too tight to buy a brand usually, though I did buy SofLens by Bausch & Lomb when it was on offer at contactlenses.co.uk.
I've used these before a few months ago and I was quite impressed with the speed of delivery also. Think I placed an order on a Thursday and the box arrived from them on the Monday morning. I would definitely use them again.
Good price? Don't know about others but 90 pairs of Focus Dailies All Day works out £73.98 in their "sale" before delivery while £54.00 always at Tescoopticians.com.
It worked for me as I have already ordered them
Firstboxfree So sorry about that
cold £6.24 a pack from daysoft delivered
Not really a deal anyway as the OP has not let anyone know what the code actually is oO
No deal then if code doesn't work
Ya I was doing the same and I ordered this and thought it will help others.
Thanks for posting, I keep on buying 250ml own label supermarket bottles and these cost nearly £5. Worth buying 4, same price per ml as 8.
nice mixer with Gin
Code not working for me
I ordered and payed and assumed all went through fine then got this in email two days later. I have ordered from them before but i used a different email this time round, so what did i do wrong?
Just wondering if their is a maximum spend?
I bought 2 pairs of glasses for my father for £18 online, including frames, lenses, cases, lens cloths and shipping from selectspecs I guess I'll find out in a week or so if it was worth it, but for glasses that he'll be using in his workshop, there's little point paying more!
shouldn't this be in deals or voucher as still have to pay for lenses and postage...x
Does this code (and the RETURN one) still work? Can still see it listed on MSE.
seems very good...will try and get a pair for my mum as a pressie..cheers for posting...
way cheaper in.... http://www.eyewearbrands.com/
Lol Just wait for the headaches and eye problems to come on. After reading the telegraph and daily mail on these companies recently...
Thanks got a nice pair
charging for the £9 for standard lenses now even with that voucher. Cant get it for under £20 without the extras and its £40 for the package deal of the extras.
Received my glasses today. Am over the moon with them. A lovely pair of Guess glasses with a stylish hard case, upgraded lenses and couple of little extras, all delivered from America for a tad over 20 squid. Not sure how they make their money but this is definitely a bargain. Thanks OP x
Got my glasses and am very happy with them, even received little screwdrivier:)
I don't think that you can, mine didn't track when I tried it anyway. I placed my order on Friday and they dispatched yesterday, a hell of a lot faster than SpeckyFourEyes.com.
Problem with ordering was with Chrome. Clicking on the Add to Basket button returned an error message. Swapped to Firefox and it worked fine. :)
Got some specs from them a year or so ago for about £15 delivered, they paid out £12 on Quidco as the cashback was calculated on the original full price of the specs. Don't know if this is still the case?
In my case by the time all the extras have been added in, the deal isn't as good.
You can't complain at that though for a new pair of glasses???
This has been posted already recently. I got a pair, but be aware that postage is added PLUS a handling fee (£11.39 together), so it's swings and roundabouts. And the TopCashback hasn't tracked.

Now I would have expected to find it in " Contact Us ".....oO
I've ordered from them last year and they genuinely gave a great service from other online retailers that i've used. I got a free case, cloth, PD (Pupillary Distance) measured ruler card and a small screw driver for the frame joints if I ever need it (which i've not used to date).
It's where you would expect it, in "About Us": LensWay.co.uk 24-28 St. Leonards Road Windsor, Berkshire SL4 3BB Contact number: 0800 635 5555
Seem to be based in British Columbia, but I cannot find an address on the site, so I will give them a miss.
I would take the original prices with a pinch of salt. I spotted a couple of frames which are very similar to those I got from goggles4u a while back for about £15 delivered. Not to mention the pair I am currently wearing from lensway which cost all of a fiver!.
The code was on their Facebook page but there was no need to "like" the page (or presumably even have a Facebook account to see the code). But I agree with the principle - I frequently find myself "liking" companies on fb so I can get a discount or a freebie, then get inundated with spam updates unless I unlike them.
Whoa. Humour bypass dude. Only joking with you. Sheeeesh.
I am awfully sorry for upsetting you all because I made a spelling mistake – what an idiot I am!! Anyway must dash I need to go & polish up on my literacy…
Hate it when people don know the difference between 'your' and 'you're' as well..... There just idiots.
Any idea if you can get sunglasses with this? I am in dire need of some prescription sunglasses. I have been wearing my glasses under normal sunglasses for far too many years when I drive on bright days.
