The Perils of Winter Wear

 It’s winter again.

The rain and the snow. The worries for our sights.
Will we fall and break them,
Will we lose our vision as the sleet stings our faces and covers our lenses.
Take them off. We can see better although squinting as we go.

As we put our hand over our brow.
Stopping the snow and the rain from distorting our vision. As we battle with the elements.
Manoeuvring around with our big boots and warm coats.

Many a times the frustration as we wipe them clear to see. As we walk or work outside.
As we search for a solution. What do we do?

With the professionals to hand I have a plan!

18 Struggles That All Glasses Wearers Can Relate To

The struggle is real guys, and we know it. I have a love-hate relationship with my glasses. Like most people, I like the fact that I can, y’know, see things.

SelectSpecs in Daily Mirror – Best Value By Far

SelectSpecs has received a nice mention in the Daily Mirror today (4th March 2011) thanks to our unbeatable value for money compared to both the High Street Opticians and our online competitors.

No one can even get close to our Value Glasses Range (£6 + delivery) and we even include ALL the coatings in the price – UV Protection, Anti-Reflection and Scratch Resistant coatings.  Others charge extra for these essential coatings.

Even on Designer Frames we cannot be touched since we offer thinner 1.56 index Thin & Light Lenses as standard on all but our Value (£6) Prescription Glasses

Forget fiddly contact lenses at festivals, take a £6 pair of glasses instead

School may be out for summer but the festival season is far from over. Reading Festival – the mother of them all – is still to come at the end of August (27th-29th), followed by Bestival in September (9th-12th), two of the season’s unmissable events. Now the whole point of going to a festival is to step outside of your comfort zone, throw caution to the wind, follow your heart, not wash, stay up all night – in other words, do whatever you damn well please.
