The only thing more shocking to me than the price of my first pair of prescription glasses, was the fear of losing or damaging these expensive spectacles. At £180 I could not afford a spare pair, and also, I would be without the sight giving receptacles for driving and TV viewing.
I had my eyesight Prescription from my Optician, so I was able to quickly find a number of sites that could proffer me a spare set of glasses, without breaking the bank. I eventually settled on Goggles4U, a simple looking site with a good amount of frame to choose from.
Once you settle on the frames you desire, you add them to your basket and then add the details of each lens from your prescription. And it really is that simple. And the best bit? The whole selection cost me less than £10! Yes, the frames are plastic and a little flimsy feeling, and you don’t get the designer type frames to choose from, but for a spare pair of glasses to keep in the draw Goggles4U are hard to beat in my (very clear) eyes.
