  Fantastic glasses! Fantastic service!

23rd May 2013

My mother recommended this site to me, I thought it too good to be true! But it really is fantastic! I spent £35 last year on some glasses more or less like these, and had spend £10 more on UV protection, and another £10 on Scratch protection - IT'S ALL FREE HERE! Really great service, simple and easy. And these particular glasses are a wonderful design. My only niggle with them, is they have two metal dots (which I assume are part of the connection) on the far side of each frame, makes it look a bit odd. But they're not that noticeable. Perfect!

  would buy them again!

19th May 2013

Received these a month ago and couldn't be happier. Though the frame feels cheapish compared to my designer brand glasses (but come on, these cost so little they're almost for free), it looks good and that plastic-y finish goes really well with this nerdy hipster style. Very lightweight, even with my -4.75 lenses. Great value for money and good service, I will definitely be a returning customer.

  Frames are fine for the price, but the prescription is wrong.

15th May 2013

I need a spare pair of glasses for DIY and work where they could be damaged. The glasses arrived fine, they seem of good construction and initially appeared to be good value for money.

The problem is that they are fitted with the wrong prescription and it strains my right eye very badly. As a result, they have ended up being wasted money.. Disappointing - live and learn I suppose.

Even if you type your prescription correctly (I double checked the original) there's nobody to check everything is OK with your vision when you try them on at home. I'd be concerned if I were buying these for children for this exact reason.

SelectSpecs.com says...
Hi, if the prescription is incorrect, please contact our customer service team and they will be able to confirm where the mistake was made. All our glasses are made exactly to the prescription given to us by the customer and it's very rare for a mistake to be made.

We do not sell glasses for children online as this is against the law, they must be fitted by an optical dispenser in store.

  Really dissapointed, not as displayed in the picture

14th May 2013

I am going to pursue a refund on this purchase, the glasses in the picture were not the exact ones that I received. Plus the corner gluing of the separate parts is a very shoddy job and it looks really rough. I appreciate the glasses are only £10 plus £5.95 for postage, but surely Selectspecs should be sending out the exact product which they advertise.

SelectSpecs.com says...
Hi, as far as we're aware the product we have supplied you with is the 2249 in black. Please also remember that this is an extreme budget frame so quality will not be the same as frames from our silver, gold or platinum collections, or designer brands.

We also note that we haven't received any contact from your regarding this problem yet.

  Great value prescription lenses & statement frames; less hot on the p&p charges

7th May 2013

I went for the glossy frames instead of the seemingly more popular matte black style, which has been doing the blogosphere rounds. This is serious geek style - for the statement nerd look and/or Harry Potter aficionados only! The glasses are exactly what they say on the tin - really great value for the included coatings and prescription lenses, plus a hardy plastic case and cleaning cloth. My one issue? Psychologically, I was loath to pay almost as much as the glasses themselves for Postage & Packaging.

Help with frame sizes

Finding the correct frame size to suit you requires you to know a little about the different measurements that are used.  Size information is normally broken down in to arm / temple length (ranges between 120 - 150mm), bridge width (ranges between 14 - 24mm, and lens width (ranges between 40 - 62mm).  We also include a frame height measurement where possible, this can vary depending on frame style.

I already have glasses, how do I find out their size?

If you have a pair of glasses that are a perfect fit, you can usually find the frame size information on the frame - usually on the arm or the bridge.

150 - Arm / temple size (in mm), a 3 digit value normally ranging from 120 - 150.
22 - Bridge size (in mm), a 2 digit value normally ranging from 14 - 24.
50 - Lens width (in mm), a 2 digit value normally ranging from 40 - 62.
