As I’ve gotten older, I’ve had to admit that my trusty 20/20 vision isn’t as sharp as it used to be. I’m slightly long-sighted and now need to wear specs for reading and close up work. When searching for a pair of glasses that didn’t cost the earth or make me look too horrendous, I stumbled upon a website selling cheap prescription glasses and I freakin love it! Select Specs (selectspecs.com) sells prescription glasses from just £6. Yep, £6!
Even if you love the look of glasses adorning your beautiful face but you don’t actually need them, you can still but many of these frames with a demo lens in so you don’t have to order based upon a prescription.
The small print (which you might need your specs for):
There are some restrictions as you would expect. The offer applies to Single Vision glasses only within the following prescription ranges: Sphere (SPH): +6.00 to -6.00 Cylindrical (CYL): +2.00 to -2.00. Additional styles, prescription ranges or if you would like a tint, are found in their Economy Collection where prices kick off from £10.
Things to consider:
+Sadly they do not offer a ‘Try Before You Buy’ service so you would need to purchase the frames you like based on the website images and product info.
+Make sure you know your prescription details and sizes!! The second time I ordered some specs, I must have got my details mixed up as I was sent a HILARIOUS looking bog eyed pair! My first order was perfect but I didn’t store my info on the site like a fool on a hill.
+Delivery takes a while so don’t order the cheaply £6 jobs if you need them in a hurry. Orders can take up to 25 days to arrive.
What do you think of these £6 glasses? Have you ordered from SelectSpecs before?
