“Can you see what I see?”

Glass options at reasonable prices

I went and had my eyes tested recently and afterwards went through the usual attempt to find some glasses that were nice, but didn't blow my finances. I was being recommended thin len's for my prescription type (short sighted, -325/-275) and the cost of these before I even had a chance to choose...

Delivery time of several weeks

I had read online that SelectSpecs.com sold ultra low cost glasses (£6 including lenses, scratch resistant coating etc.) and decided that this was cheap enough to buy on a whim. I have now bought two pairs of budget glasses (£6 plus £3.50 p&p) on separate occasions, and knew that if there was...

I ordered glasses from this company, and when they arrived, the lenses were bulky and unflattering. They were nothing like the extra money I paid to get ultra-thinned, double-aspheric lenses. I have worn glasses since the third grade, I know what quality lenses are. My prescription is not the...

I ordered a pair of specs from this website a month ago. The website leads you to believe the specs are coming from the UK but a week after paying, I was told they would be posted from HongKong!! When I ordered, I paid for insured & registered post - I still haven't received anything from...

From the moment I placed my order to now, I have had nothing but trouble. Every frame I have selected seems to be out of stock and then I get an email back (eventually) telling me that this is the case. I have ordered three pairs of expensive glasses and up til now I have received nothing! It has...

The Price and the free extra's

sometimes there could be a delay

I bought a pair of sunglasses a few months ago, they cost me £35, I could have got the frames else where for a similar price but would have had to get the persciption lenses made up. having a stong perscription and eye problems at the moment it was costing me a fortune doing this so I tried...

I ordered rear surface varifocals a few weeks ago from this site. I have to admit being nervous about it, but it was the only way I was going to get new prescription glasses at a price I could afford, so decided to give them a try. Am I glad I did! They took a little longer than usual (about 3...

Having broken my glasses finding Select Specs seemed too good to be true - UK based, great prices, orders 'completed' within 7-10 days. Well... it was too good to be true. When they say completed, they in fact mean it takes 2 weeks before they've assembled the glasses (what my local optician does...

Any price advantage is outweighed by bad service.

I strongly recommend that anyone considering doing business with this company takes great care before placing an order. The web site and prices are very seductive but I am left £60 down with nothing to show for it. However, if you must risk it, please bear in mind the following from my personal...

My order for two pairs of distance glasses took a month to arrive & when they finally did arrive I was immensely disappointed with the quality. The quality of both the frames & lenses were very poor, but the frames in particular were comical in both appearance and construction, the arms...

Definitely an unsatisfying experience for me. After ordering a simple pair of eyeglasses with regular lenses it took selectspecs around a month to deliver. Once I received the package I found out they sent a different size than the one I ordered. I had to return the glasses (obviously paying out...

Shipping Costs, Poor Customer Service

I sent my designer glasses for reglazing as they were pretty new and I needed to change my prescription. I sent them recorded delivery, plus paid the extra postage for safe return of them once they were done to make sure they were insured if the went missing. I placed my order on 30th June and...
