Glasses Direct

UK readers of this forum might be interested to know that the above company provide a service which allows you to order glasses over the internet (, at low prices; just £15 plus £2.50 postage for a pair of single vision glasses (that includes frames and lenses).

You can pay more of course for designer name frames etc. but their basic range are of good quality. I have used them a number of times and find them very good, glasses received in about 5 working days.

A couple of minor niggles are that they will not consolidate postage like say Amazon who give free postage for orders over £15, so if you order two pairs at once you have to pay double the postage, yet they want you to order a pair for home, a pair for the office, a pair for the car etc. etc. The other is that they publish an 0870 number to ring them on rather than a freephone number which most sales departments quote these days.

I have use this place, I have ordered three pair from here and one time my oldest daughter broke hers and they let me send them back, they replaced them for free and paid me back shipping.. They do have international ordering.

If you order 5 pairs you get the 6th one free ( you don't have to buy all at the same time, just have to keep the same email address as that is how they keep track of how many purchases you have made)

I have ordered spare pairs form as well. They were quick, and dependable with their service.
Only once out of 6 orders (all my kids wear them , too) did I have a problem.
I ordered 2 pairs, and recieved 1. Before I could even call them, I got an email saying they had a problem with the tinting on the second pair and had to remake them, so shipment was delayed.
As compensation for the inconvenience, the refunded 25% of the cost.
I thought that was a good way to do business.
