I must admit I was a little dubious about this offer, the idea of two pairs of prescription glasses for £19 seemed far too good to be true, but after checking Glasses Direct’s returns policy and noting that I could return the glasses if I was unhappy with them for any reason, I thought what the heck? I’ll give it a whirl.
Am so glad I did, after carefully choosing my glasses (all the measurements are clearly posted and you can even virtually try them on), a few days later I received 2 rather delightful pairs of glasses complete with a hard case and cleaning cloth, all for £19 including postage!
The first pair, the Sapphie have very thin black lenses and the frame is very lightweight but at the same time, feels very sturdy. The design is perfect for those seeking a minimalist look and would suit most face shapes.
The second pair I chose is the Daisy in Matt Navy – described on the website as a cross between the ubiquitous Wayfarer and Clubmaster styles, they are not only great value for money, but very trendy too! The navy blue colour is accurately portrayed on the Glasses Direct website and like the Sapphie have a lightweight, yet sturdy frame. I have received many compliments on these.
Glasses Direct have a wide range of frames and offer additional services including sunglasses, digital protection shields and light adaptive coatings on your lenses. After choosing the frames there is a click through menu that allows you to choose the lens type, e.g. bifocal or varifocal etc, and then selecting any additional extras, if required. Finally there is a form to enter your prescription details.
