Getting new glasses can be expensive, however if you're happy with your frames but your lenses are damaged or your prescription has changed, you can send your specs to ReglazeMyGlasses* to get your lenses replaced.
The price you'll pay depends on which lenses you have (standard 1.5 index starts from £19.90), but we’ve a code to get £10 off all lenses.
Here's how to get it:
What lenses is it valid on?
The code's valid on all lenses such as bifocals, varifocals, tinted and polarised lenses (See the full price list). The normal price for standard 1.5 index glasses is £19.90 so, if you go for the most basic lenses, you'll pay £9.90.
How does it compare?
The cheapest price we can find elsewhere online for basic replacement lenses is £15 at Ciliary Blue and Direct Sight, while on the high street it's £39 at Specsavers.
Online glasses retailer SpeckyFourEyes* is offering discounts of between £22-£66 on selected prescription glasses and sunnies if you go via the special link and use the codes below. One code gets you glasses for £10 all in.
Delivery’s £4.99 and takes 7-15 working days. You can only use one code per transaction, so if you want to buy more than one pair you'll need to place separate orders.
How to get the £10 specs
There are five styles of Berkeley*, currently priced at £39. Use the code SUMMERMSE34 to get them for £5, plus £4.99 delivery.

Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra. To get the very cheapest price just pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package. Some frames aren't suitable for high prescriptions, so keep an eye out when choosing (sorry).
Important! The codes are valid on the frames in the link above only. Don't use the search options on the left-hand side of the SpeckyFourEyes page, as these will take you away from the special offer page and the codes won't work.
SpeckyFourEyes says there are good stock levels available but be aware, all frames are subject to availability, so they could still sell out fast if demand is high.
Book online at Optical Express*, and visit your nearest store by Wed 31 Dec to get a free eye test, as part of its iScan advanced eye care report.
The test will provide you with a copy of your prescription, just like a regular eye test, and you can use this to buy glasses and contact lenses. It also checks the health of your eyes and provides you with a full report via email.
Optical Express says the test takes about 15-20 minutes, and there's no obligation for you to buy anything afterwards.
Remember if you live in Scotland, everyone gets free eye tests. Some are also eligible for free NHS tests (see below for who).
Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!
