    Been looking at online specs sellers lately.

    For a start, SelectSpecs are violating the Distance Selling Regulations (now the Consumer Contracts Regulations) by not refunding original postage cost and charging a restocking fee.


    Should you wish to obtain a refund for any reason, the cost of the frames and lenses, or in the case of a reglaze the cost of the lenses will be refunded in full, postage costs are non-refundable.

    Three or more items returned for a refund will incur a 5.00 restocking fee per item
    https://www.selectspecs.com/info/returns/


    2. You've up to 28 days after DELIVERY to return goods. That's 14 days to cancel and 14 days after cancellation to return.
    3. The refund is for the goods AND delivery charge.

    Hi, wondering if anyone could offer any advice on where to get cheap spectacles for those with big heads (literally as opposed to metaphorically!).

    I've got some nice glasses but what I need are some for a work environment where breakage is a possibility, and recompense from the employer is limited.

    Thanks

    they do a cheap poly lens that is very tough and bendable frames that are hard to break.
    50 will get you these in single vision.

    if you go rimless you can go custom size, on the total width.

    for cheaper I use goggles4u thy do even bigger frames had off them for less than 30

    Adjustments
    Where do you get your glasses adjusted? I have tried Boots and Specsavers, even offered to pay, however both refused to help. Any ideas would be welcome.

    Try another Specsavers. They are generally pretty good at doing this type of thing for people.

    Hi, does anyone know if there is a forum dedicated to cheap prescription sunglasses? Or even better, anyone know of standard prescription sunglasses (e.g. +3 both lenses or -2 etc.). They do swimming goggles like this but never seen sunglasses.
    Many thanks,

    Originally posted by Steve_xx
    The legislation neither permits such postage fees to be limited to any particular amount, nor for this legal right to be limited to errors by the seller.

    By virtue of Part 2 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015, for the purposes of a consumer contract, this purported contractual condition cannot be enforced.

    My prescription is for astigmatism, with -4.00 CYL in one eye and -4.50 in the other



    Does anyone know of any of these online sites that sell glasses for this prescription level? I tried glassesdirect, which was a great experience (trying the glasses on at home was wonderful because you don't get pressured by the shop staff) but I couldn't buy from them because they don't support my prescription

    New lenses for old frames
    Could anyone recommend an online place to get some new lenses put into my old frames? I see there's quite a few around but a recommendation of hassle free service would be good.


    Thanks
