A few weeks ago, I had my regular checkup with my lovely local optician. Turns out I needed a completely new set of specs as all my measurements had changed. I had a browse around the shop, but found myself unable to select a pair of specs, I just don’t have the taste you need, and I couldn’t really see myself well in a mirror without corrective lenses, a bit of a Catch-22.
A couple of days later I came across IWearGlasses, a UK based online service that lets you specify what glasses you want, make them up according to your specs and wishes, and ships them to you in the comfort of your home. I liked the fact that they had a 14 day no quibble guarantee, which meant I could return them if something didn’t work for me and best of all, they were cheap, so cheap! I could get 3 pairs of glasses for the price I paid for my last pair! And to boot, I had a code for 10% off their product (use BLOG10 if you want to purchase from there)
They have a titanium frame, extra thin and extra light varifocal lenses and have optional coatings to reduce glare etc; and they cost me less than £150. If your lenses are simpler you’ll spend much less and don’t forget the BLOG10 code for a 10% off. Recommended!
p.s. I’m actually going to use their reglaze service to revitalise my old frames too. Will keep you posted.
