Hi all,

Need some new glasses. Looking for those squarish ones in black which are modern. Good value preferred, not necessarily cheap cheap.
Specky4eyes are good ive heard. Anyone have experience with places to get modern mens glasses from?

Thanks all

I use goggles4u - I have a pretty standard short sighted vision prescription. I have found them pretty good, slow on despatch, but glasses are of good quality and the vision through them is spot on. I tend to use them when they have a code for 2 pairs for a certain amount, I get one pair tinted for sunglasses.


Asda opticians better pricing than Specsavers.

I love Goggles4U (lots of money off codes to make them even cheaper), they're great if you have issues. I had one pair where the lens was slightly "off" in the frame and they sent me another free.

I've found their "brown" tint prescription sunglasses were amber the last time I ordered, not sure if they've fixed that, they were brown the first time I ordered sunglasses from there! Got many frames from G4U - recently went to a Specsavers 2 yearly sight test and they said my sight was fine with them. Drop shipped from Pakistan to the UK, gets here in around 10-14 days in my experience.

Zenni Optical I've bought a few pairs from too, and maybe a bit funkier than G4U, but more expensive. Their customer service perhaps isn't as good as G4U, they tend to offer money off if there's problems (though that might have changed - last ordered from there over 18 months or so ago).

Spex4less are great too. Just got my new Ray Bans from there today. Great service and very quick turnaround plus no quibbles money back guarantee.
