Cheap Prescription Sunglasses

Cheap Prescription Sunglasses

Topics: Great Deals

Cheap prescription sunglasses are readily available from most online glasses retailers at prices that would be hard to ignore. The great thing about owning a pair of prescription sunglasses is that they offer the wearer instant protection from the suns harmful UV rays whilst offering comfortable vision when being exposed to glare.   We’ve had a look at some of the best deals for a pair of cheap prescription sunglasses on the internet and came across quite a few sites that were able to offer these for less than £70. Now you might not think that seventy quid for a pair of prescription sunglasses is cheap but when you compare that to the average high street price of £120 I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s a decent enough saving.

One of the best quality prescription sunglasses we found for under £50

One thing to watch for though is that there are many online glasses retailers out there who can offer prescription sunglasses for a lot less than the average price that we found and there is normally a number of worrying reasons for this – they either don’t come with full UV protection, they are fitted with poor grade prescription lenses or they are from companies based abroad so their is always the risk that once you’ve paid they won’t turn up at all! The best of the bunch that we found were from SpeckyFourEyes who offer some very funky frames with fantastic colours from frame designers ‘Jigsaw’ and OnlineGlassesDirect who are currently offering a very stylish selection of prescription sunglasses from quality designer ‘Carducci’ for less than 50 quid!!

My recommendation through past experience is to only go with an online retailer who offers the best quality grade prescription sunglasses lenses with their frames, at least that way you know you will be getting full UV protection and will experience the best visual acuity and definition through your prescription sunglasses. If you browse our forums you will see some horror stories from customers who have bought cheap prescription sunglasses from bogus suppliers offering their products and ridiculously low prices only to be left empty handed and a few pound lighter. Over the coming couple of months I will be compiling a list of the most trusted online glasses retailers for you so we can put a stop to naive customers being scammed by online criminals.  Chow for now…

    I bought some prescription sunglasses from an online company who I later found out were based in somewhere in China. When I finally received them they only lasted 4 weeks before the arm fell off. I took them to a local opticians who kindly repaired them for me. 2 weeks after this one of the lenses fell out and the nose pad fell off. I emailed the company over 5 times complaining and then I gave up after no one responded after 2 months.

    I wish I’d read this article 6 months ago, it would have saved me a lot of bother and time!

    Don’t buy the cheap prescription sunglasses from selectspecs, I bought a pair for my holiday this year and they were rubbish quality. The frame felt like it was made of cardboard and the arms kept bending out of shape. Nice price, terrible glasses, lesson learned!!

    Why on earth would anyone buy cheap prescription sunglasses from a company online when you have not even done your homework on the people you are buying from?!! Makes no sense to me.

    @Masie – Some people just don’t have any common sense when it comes to purchasing items online, that’s why these online criminals exist; to take advantage of the huge amount of naive customers that shop online without a clue what’s really going on.

    Want my advice? Buy your cheap prescription sunglasses from a local opticians.

    What’s the difference between cheap prescription sunglasses and discount sunglasses? Does that mean the quality is cheap and the other is based on price? It’s all very misleading sometimes!

    …eeerrrm cheap prescription sunglasses are exactly what they say they are and discount glasses are just glasses that have been reduced in price.
