buying specs online
I used these twice and thought they were great. They now will not sell to me as my prescription is too strong
In other words there is now less profit margin on you so they dont want to know……………..
………….so now you’ll have to go back to the opticians to get stuff sorted…………wonder if yours does loyalty discountsPosted 6 years agopeterwpMember
I have used http://www.spex4less.co.uk. Have bought 6 pairs over the last 4 years, mostly rimless ultra thin ones that the high street quoted £400 for. All have been 1/3 price of high street, never any issues. Rang them up to get sunglasses made from a frame I already had, really great to deal with.Would heartily recommend them.Posted 6 years agothis_wreckageMember
Specs place here too. Bought some titanium Oakley frames on eBay and sent them to be glazed at the specs place. Cost a total of £180 of which £120 was thinned Kodak lenses. Same standard from vision express was over £400!!
I am very happy with them too most importantly.Posted 6 years agomintimperialSubscriber
I have a pair that cost £23 from Eye Experts, their service was okay with a fairly fast turnaround. I got them to keep as an emergency backup for the fancy, expensive specs I bought from a proper opticians. The odd thing is they’re better than the expensive ones, I wear them all the time because they’re some of the best specs I’ve ever owned. The prescription is the same, obviously, but the cheap-and-cheerful frames just happen to fit my face better than any of the carefully chosen ones I’ve had over the past twenty-odd years of glasses wearing.Posted 6 years agochompMember
I use spectraders and have had no problems. My last pair of Oakleys (£190 online compared to about £300 in an opticians) had a very slight chip which was almost unnoticeable unless you were looking at it from a particular angle (wasn’t able to photograph it). I sent them back (freepost) and had a replacement back in a couple of days.Posted 6 years agoSpeederSubscriber
Got my current pair of Oakley Transistors from a guy on eBay. Total I paid was about £90 including lenses and they threw in a spare pair of glazed glasses for free. They came all the way from Hong Kong too . If I remember the name of the eBay shop I’ll post it later. Couldn’t fault the service or the glasses and I’d advertise their services anywhere if asked.
Oh and the equivalent in the UK were well over £300.Posted 6 years agoSpeederSubscriber
The Hustler – if they’re copies or seconds I literally can’t tell the difference and I suspect neither could you. They are of the quality and “performance” I’d expect of Oakley just without the price tag.
I suspect that they do a few low start auctions as loss leaders/good advertising. I got the glasses, case, warranty card etc – no hint of anything untoward.
Anyway here they are if anyone is interested
I got a great pair of glasses and a great service for a great price. Happy to recommend them to anyone.
