About Glassesonspec

Glassesonspec was established in 2005 with the aim of providing cheap glasses and cheap prescription sunglasses. Although we have always provided some of the cheapest glasses in the UK, our outstanding customer service reputation goes before us, marrying cheap glasses with friendly, helpful and technically trained staff.

From our opticians, we cut and prepare all glasses to order. If you have a prescription made out within the last two years by your registered optician, we can provide you with cheap prescription glasses online up to 70% cheaper than high street opticians.

Our prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses can also be ordered without a prescription.

    I have bought my husband a pair of ray bands for his birthday (9/4/16), and would like them converting into prescription sunglasses. I have his prescription, which is a relatively low prescription.

    Could you tell me if I sent you the glasses through the post, whether you could change the lenses to suit his prescription?

    If so, how much would this service cost?

    Many thanks,

      Hi Laura


      The price would vary slightly depending on what tint you would like.

      You would be looking at around the £30 mark.

      Kind regards

      Hi Frank,

      I have a son that is a surgeon but he is orthopaedic and works in Plymouth.

      There is an Andrew Luff that is an ophthalmologist that I met years ago but we are not close relatives.

    I am looking for new frames and your site has got a few pairs which I love, however don’t want to buy until I have tried on! I live in Newcastle and wondered if you have any outlets near me or are there any other ways I could find ‘Accent’ and ‘Charles Stone’?

    Hoping you can help me

      Hi Pamela

      There is only our shop in Watford. If you wish to try before you buy, please send us an email at info@glassesonspec.co.uk with the frames you wish to try.
      We will then post them out to you, and if you like any of them, you can place an order either via the website or email. If, you have a prescription, we would need a copy of that if you wish prescription lenses. Please send us your address and contact details on the email if you wish us to send you some frames.

      Hope this helps!

      Kind regards

    I have a broken arm on my glasses and wondered if you repair or if I bought my glasses to you then maybe you could put my existing lenses into new frames

  5. glassesonspec says:

    Hi Trisha,

    If you bring the glasses in, there is a very good chance that we can repair or supply a new frame.

    I am thinking of ordering my glasses from you, but obviously can’t try them on to see what they are like, how can I do this? Also, I have sunglasses for which I like the frame, but my prescription has changed, would you be able to change the lenses? If so, do I come to you or do I have to send them to you? You state that you have frames from £13.50, but I cant find them.
    Regards Iza
