    Problem with onlineopticiansuk.com??? 29th Mar 17 at 2:30 PM
    I ordered a reglazing of my glasses from onlineopticiansuk.com about 2 weeks ago. I called them a couple of times beforehand and there was ALWAYS an answerphone, but at least someone called back quite quick.
    When I ordered the money was taken off the credit via PayPal immediately and I received an automated email.... And that was it for now. No further email, letter or instructions on how to get my glasses to them, NO calls returned AT ALL and no reply to emails. Is this onlineopticiansuk.com's normal practice???

    I am seriously thinking about canceling and asking the credit card company for a charge back.

    Never heard of them until your post, would rather take my frames straight to a lab for reglazing.

    I need a pair of glasses reglazing and was thinking of sending them there. I'd be interested to know how you got on.

    A quick look on TrustPilot eases my concerns as their reviews seem good although the most recent one is a concern.

    Sounds well dodgy to me - no confirmation is highly unprofessional and would make me suspect a scam. I think I would bail out if I were in your shoes.
    Beware the character seeking personal gain masquerading as a moral crusader.

    I got my money back. The payment is through PayPal even though I chose credit card, so a claim with PayPal got things going. I received an email from Onlineopticians after the reimbursement saying that a manager would get in touch, but I never received any call or email.
    I know that Trust pilot has lots of good reviews and then some really negative ones like mine. I am not sure how a company can be so black and white.

    Thanks, I might give it a swerve then.

    Can anyone recommend where to get a reglaze done?

    I've ordered some glasses, i've had or heard nothing for over a week.
    They don't answer the phone or respond to emails.
    I found this thread after googling them and worried if my glasses are ever going to turn up.

    I'm not impressed so far.
