(Late) Things I Love Thursday

Glasses Direct

After approximately 7 years of having poor and deteriorating eye sight - last week, I went for an eye test.

I was told at my last eye test two years ago that I needed glasses for distance, and that my sight was not good - but I couldn't afford to fork out around £200 on a pair, so I had to just ignore it and deal with my ever decreasing vision.

So, when last week, the opitician told me that I have very poor distance sight and that it was now at the point of being illegal for driving - I decided I had to bite the bullet, and get glasses.

Again - I am in no position right now to be spending £200 on a pair of glasses - so I went online, remembering a site my friend Emily told me about a couple of years back.

I went to http://www.glassesdirect.co.uk/ - the site was easy to navigate, and they were running a Halloween "Spooky Savings" promotion - offering me 30% off my order.

I found a pair I liked (However, if you can't decide on a pair....you can pay £5.00 to try on 5 frames of your choice at home - and the £5 is taken off the price of the glasses you eventually decide to order!) - and I ordered them.

All I had to do was type in the details on my prescription from the optician - and that was it!!

With my 30% discount taken off, and my £3.50 delivery charge on top - I paid £22.25 and was informed that my glasses would arrive in approximately 5 days.

Today - 4 days after ordering them - they arrived.

They were well packaged, they came with a hard case and wiping cloth, a 25% discount card for me on any future purchases and a 20% discount card for a friend.

They glasses are brilliant - the difference is mental - I can see clearly, at last!!!! :):):)

I would highly recommend this website to anybody - and if anyone wants to try them with my discount card, let me know! :)

They also offer designer frames and more expensive lenses.

I can't beleive anybody still pays the high street price when such an amazing service is offered for a fraction of the price - without the inconvenience of having to go and collect your glasses, too!

  1. I've never heard of this company, they have nice prices and your glasses are nice as well. Specsavers is the only place I've gotten my glasses from, but should I need another pair I'm trying this company for sure. Thanks for the tip!
