Are you qualified to sell prescription spectacles?

We certainly understand the apprehension of buying prescription spectacles online. We would like to assure you, however, that we are not a simple "bucket shop" operation, trying to supply a low-quality item at the cheapest rate possible with unqualified staff. We take our products and our business reputation seriously.

All incoming orders for prescription spectacles are checked and you will be advised if there are any obvious discrepancies in your prescription. All outgoing prescription spectacles are also thoroughly checked our quality control staff to ensure that they have been made to the required prescription and that you are supplied with only the highest quality finished article.

Although our prices are inexpensive, we only use the highest quality material with all lenses coming with the internationally recognised CE mark of quality. All frames are strong and substantial with fitting carried out by highly qualified staff with many years of experience.

How do I obtain my glasses prescription?

Under the UK Opticians Act of 1989, it is the obligation of any optician to provide you with a prescription. The optician will provide you with a thorough eye examination and is required by Law to provide you with a copy of your prescription for your own records. You are not under any obligation to purchase your glasses from your optician so do not feel pressured into doing so.

Do I need to send you a copy of my prescription?

No - as long as you have a current up-to-date prescription and you feel confident about entering the details into our ordering page, we don't need to see a copy, however you can attach a copy of your prescription to your order for us to check if you wish, you may also fax or post this to us for clarification, we would kindly ask you to note this in the additional information box when ordering.

My prescription does not have any 'CYL' or 'AXIS' value

This is quite common. The cyl and axis are used to correct an astigmatism. If you do not have an astigmatism, you will not have a cyl or axis included in your prescription, for more info click here.

My prescription mentions prisms - can you supply these?

A Prism is to try and correct a lazy eye and indicates a more delicate condition, this is included with a prescription to correct some special conditions or some eye disorders (like squints) that require the focused image to move position.

If your prescription contains a prism, kindly contact us with your full prescription, we may be able to add this to your prescription for a small additional fee.

Do you supply supply Varifocals/Progressive glasses?

Yes we do supply Varifocals or Progressive lenses. These lenses combine three visions all in one lens. The distance and reading portions of the lens blend together with a gradual progression from one to the other, giving a third area of the lens, intermediate vision which allows for clear vision at arms distance so providing glasses to see in the far, middle and near distance with no dividing lines or segments - just one simple lens for all uses.

Please note that we have a very high rate of success with these glasses but we cannot guarantee success in every case. Our refund policy does not apply to these lenses.

Can I use my contact lens prescription for spectacles?

No, a contact lens prescription is entirely different to your spectacle prescription, if in doubt we advise confirming this with your optician or Doctor before ordering.

What if my frames need adjustment after I receive them?

All frames are thoroughly inspected, aligned and professionally verified to the prescription given prior to shipping. If you need a minor adjustment, such as tightening loose arms or adjusting nose pads, you could take them into your optician. Alternatively your may return them to us for correction, please Contact Us first so that we can advise you of the correct procedure which varies depending upon your country.

How are frames sized?

The lens size is the width across the widest part of the lens (in mm). The bridge size is the width of the nose bridge. The arm length is the length of each arm. These sizes can usually be found on your current glasses by looking on the inside of the frame (usually the arms) which is a good guide to use when selecting new spectacles. For example, 52 16 135 - 52mm will be the lens size, 16mm will be the bridge size, and 135mm will be the length of the arm. To find out more Click here.

What tints do you offer?

We can apply a dark tint to any prescription spectacles. We also offer Polarising Lenses which cut out 99.9% of glare.

Alternatively, we offer Photochromatic lenses, which are almost as clear as standard plastic when deactivated inside (approximately 15% absorption) and dark in sunlight. It is strongly advised that photochromic glasses are not used for night driving or in any dark environment in which critical judgment is required. Photo-chromic lenses filter out 100% of UVA and UVB, radiation, whether activated or not.

You can select the colour of tint you require and add an additional note in the box provided to suggest the depth of tint, for example, grey 15% absorption is a very light tint, 25% light/medium, 50% medium, 75% medium to dark, and 85% dark sunglasses.

If you select Polarising tints however, these are set at 85% absorption, and are unchangeable.

Are the lenses glass or plastic?

Why are our prices so low?

Due to the cost savings of the internet, our prices are significantly lower than what you would find in the shops. We keep our operating costs low by not renting expensive, prime location property or paying for the upkeep of expensive eye testing machinery in multiple stores. We receive all our frames and lenses directly from the manufacturers, which cuts out the middle man and allows us to pass on the savings to you, the customer.

Do you take NHS vouchers?

Unfortunately, we do not currently accept NHS vouchers at this time but we do accept Accor Eyecare Vouchers.

Are your designer brands 100% authentic and do they come with the original manufacturer case?

Yes, we only sell 100% authentic designer brands supplied directly from the manufacturer. In many cases, the designers manufacturer will include the official case for the product, however, some designers do not supply cases but we substitute this with one of our own branded cases to ensure your new glasses are protected during delivery.
