Prescription Glasses at a fraction of high street prices

Buying Prescription Glasses couldn’t be easier! You must have a prescription that is less than 2yrs old then you’re off!

Specs-By-Post was set up in 2006 to offer highly competitive Online Glasses, with considerable savings over the prices available on the High Street (literally up to 75%). Having worked in the field of Optics for over fourty years both for Independents and Multiples I knew a market existed. By offering Cheap Glasses, but still maintaining the high level of quality and service I have always strived for, it brought Glasses into your home, for you to choose at your leisure. Designer Glasses styles, like the Rimless Glasses from only £33 complete with standard hard coated single vision lenses are affordable to most.

We provide Discount Prescription Glasses every day, no need to wait for the sales and at our prices you can have different Spectacles for different looks. Cheap Specs means you can have more than 1 pair to complement your outfits as most are available in different colours. Discount Glasses doesn’t mean you are losing on quality as all our frames are CE marked and the lenses are supplied to British Standards.

Over 90% of prescription glasses are dispatched within 3 working days. 1st class postage is £4.70, 1st class recorded £5.80 or Special Delivery is from £8.25. We post to Ireland & Europe from £11.05 and the rest of the World tbc (import fees may apply). All our complete glasses are sent in a hard case with a micro fibre cleaning cloth. You can order Cheap Eye Glasses and have them sent to a different shipping address, a good idea for a present. We don’t just supply Prescription Glasses, all our frames can be ordered with non-prescription lenses, either clear for cosmetic use or tinted as sunglasses. We can make Reading Glasses, everyday distance Specs and Bifocal Specs. We also provide Varifocals this is a special order and will require you to call us to place the order as there are many different designs of Varifocal lenses available depending on prescription, frame and coatings required.

Any of our frames can be made into Reading Glasses. For the ultimate in Reading Glasses try our Rimless Glasses, model sbp30 or Emp300 they are only 18mm deep to give the perfect half-eye Reading Glasses so you can read and look over the top of the lens. Any of our Rimless Glasses can be manufactured to your personal height and width requirements (adjustment charges may apply).

Our Rimless Glasses can be altered to suit most, as we can increase / decrease the width and depth making them a unique size just for you (adjustment charges may apply).

Online Glasses will mean you can save money, sometimes significantly; however Cheap Glasses doesn’t mean a compromise anymore by ordering from Specs-By-Post. New Designer Glasses without the price tag!

You can order your Discount Prescription Glasses with confidence as you will receive exactly as you ordered in a short period of time. We offer a no quibble money back guarantee or exchange facility (please see our full T&C's).
