Specky Four Eyes logo£14 specs or £24 prescription sunnies codes*Incl del. Valid on selected brands incl Superdry & Oasis

While stock lasts

Online glasses retailer SpeckyFourEyes* is offering discounts of £25-£90 off selected branded prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses if you go via our special link and use the codes below, while stock lasts. Delivery, which takes 7-20 working days (although varifocals etc. may take even longer), is £4.99, so you could get a pair of branded glasses for £14 delivered, or prescription sunnies for £24.

Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra.

Key need-to-knows for getting cheapest price before you start

  • The codes are valid on the frames via our SpeckyFourEyes* link only. Don't use the search or filter 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.
  • If you want the lowest price, pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package. If you want thinner or scratch-resistant lenses, select the 'Specky' packages, but this will cost £9-£125 extra.
  • You can either enter your prescription during the checkout process, or opt to send it later. Some frames aren't suitable for high prescriptions, so keep an eye out when choosing (sorry).
  • Enter the relevant code below at the checkout and when asked to choose a delivery type, select 'Royal Mail Standard' at £4.99 if you want the cheapest option.

Codes to use for discounted specs (don't forget to add the £4.99 cost of delivery):

There is a code for each designer, which will work on all of its specs via the specific link above.

  • £9 Superdry glasses - £90 off £99 glasses using the code SUMMER9MSE
  • £9 Berkeley glasses - £30 off £39 glasses using the code SUMMER9MSE2
  • £14 Actman glasses - £25 off £39 glasses using the code SUMMER14MSE
  • £14 Goldigga glasses - £85 off £99 glasses using the code SUMMER14MSE2
  • £17 Oasis glasses - £82 off £99 glasses using the code SUMMER17MSE
  • £17 Ghost glasses - £82 off £99 glasses using the code SUMMER17MSE2
  • £22 Jai Kudo glasses - £77 off £99 glasses using the code SUMMER22MSE
  • £33 Lambretta glasses - £66 off £99 glasses using the code SUMMER33MSE

Codes to use for discounted prescription sunglasses (don't forget to add the £4.99 cost of delivery):

  • £19 Superdry sunnies - £90 off £109 sunnies using the code SUMMER9MSE
  • £19 Berkeley sunnies - £30 off £49 sunnies using the code SUMMER9MSE2
  • £24 Actman sunnies - £25 off £49 sunnies using the code SUMMER14MSE
  • £24 Goldigga sunnies- £85 off £109 sunnies using the code SUMMER14MSE2
  • £27 Oasis sunnies - £82 off £109 sunniesusing the code SUMMER17MSE
  • £27 Ghost sunnies - £82 off £109 sunnies using the code SUMMER17MSE2
  • £32 Jai Kudo sunnies - £77 off £109 sunnies using the code SUMMER22MSE
  • £43 Lambretta sunnies - £66 off £109 sunnies using the code SUMMER33MSE

It's tricky to compare prices for these exact frames, as many of them are end of line and aren't sold elsewhere – but we reckon £14 all-in for a pair of branded prescription specs is pretty decent. 

This is an ongoing offer and although SpeckyFourEyes says there are good stock levels available, all frames are subject to availability, so they could still sell out fast if demand is high.

More info

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.

Ongoing

You can get a complete pair of varifocal glasses for £45 at Asda Opticians*. The price includes value frames, lenses, anti-reflective coating, tints and thinner lenses (if required).

We compared prices with a number of other opticians, and found that Asda Opticians was the cheapest for varifocal glasses. Always compare prices before you buy though, as you may find a good deal at your local opticians.

See below for the prices of a complete pair of varifocal glasses elsewhere:

  • Tesco Opticians from £60
  • Specsavers from £69
  • Glasses Direct from £95

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link.
