How to save money when buying glasses
It is possible to make a significant saving when buying prescription eye-wear. Most adults should get an eye-test every two years. For some of us it should be more frequent - if we are diabetic, for example. That’s a big market for all the market operators, so there is plenty of competition for anyone who needs glasses for reading, for driving or for any other reason.
We can benefit from this competition and, with a little extra effort, make a saving that you could put towards more expensive frames that you might not otherwise be able to afford; or get a prescription pair of sunglasses for the summer.
There is no substitute for great customer service from a reputable supplier, who will guide you through the whole process from eye test to final fitting. But the savings that are possible are very compelling. Here is our advice if you are looking to save money on your next pair of glasses.
