Choosing The Right Frames For Your Face Shape

The wide variety of different styles and shaped glasses make choosing the right pair no easy task. As well as supporting your vision with quality lenses, your glasses should fit effortlessly with your personal style and reflect your personality.

Seriously, why are you still using the high street for designer prescription glasses? Shop online and save up to 60%!

It’s a well known fact that shopping online can save you heaps of money, especially when it comes to designer eye wear!  Armed with a smart phone camera, my girlfriend and I decided to do a little fact finding mission and paid a visit to a well known local high street opticians to check out their product line up and prices – Mr money saver himself,  Martin Lewis, would be proud I’m sure!

Google Glass – Hot or Not!

Google glass is being tested by a wide range of people, such as Doctors, Hikers, Teachers, DJ’s and even Zookeepers.

Battle of the Brands – Ray-Ban Vs. Oakley (Winter 12/13)

We’ve been looking over our sales figures and have noticed an interesting trend over the course of the Winter, which actually hit a peak in February.  Traditionally, Ray-Ban has always been our best selling designer brand, but over the Winter the gap between Ray-Ban in first place and our second place brand was beginning to close right up.

Towards the end of the month of February for first time ever, Ray-Ban was actually pushed down into second place as our best selling brand.  But who could overpower the might of the best known eyewear brand in the industry?
