Code ends Mon 26 Aug
MSE Update, 8.30am on Mon 19 Aug: While this deal was initially due to end on Mon 19 Aug, Glasses Direct has decided to extend the offer until Mon 26 Aug.
You can get a pair of prescription glasses and a pair of prescription sunglasses for £22 delivered, when you use our MSE Blagged code MSE17AUGUST on top of two existing Glasses Direct* offers, by 11.59pm on Mon 26 Aug.
The code works by giving you two pairs of glasses for £17, so if you just want basic lenses you can get that deal. But the code also gives an optional 50% off tinted lenses (£5 instead of £10) – meaning you could get a pair of specs and a pair of sunnies for £22 all-in, or go for tinted lenses on both and get two pairs of sunnies for £27.
Here's what to do:
1. 2for1 on prescription glasses £49 or over. Glasses Direct has a range of frames priced from £49, which are currently on a 2for1 offer*, so you get the cheapest free. Once you pick your frames (excluding Boutique), you'll be asked to choose your lens package.
If you don't want any extras such as scratch-resistant coatings, and don't want sunglasses, you can avoid the extra costs by clicking on 'continue with basic lenses' – you'll see this underneath the 'Bronze' to 'Platinum' options.
If you do want one or two pairs of sunglasses, when it comes to picking your lens type, you'll need to select 'sunglasses' and then 'dark tints'. It may say that it costs £10 extra for sunglasses lenses, but this will be reduced to £5 once you've entered the code at checkout.
This code gets 50% off all types of tinted lenses, so you could get gradient tints for £10 instead of £20, or polarised for £27.50 instead of £55).
2. Code gets £32 off, 50% off tinted lenses & free delivery. After adding the second pair to your basket, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later. Use the code MSE17AUGUST at the checkout by 11.59pm on Mon 26 Aug to get an extra £32 off ANY glasses where individual frames cost £49 or more (before the 2for1 discount), 50% off sunglasses dark tints, and free delivery.
Combining these offers could get you two pairs of glasses for just £17, or a pair of glasses and sunglasses for £22, or two pairs of sunglasses for £27, plus free delivery. What's more, the second pair doesn't have to be the same prescription as the first, so you could get one for yourself and one for someone else.
This deal won't work on very strong prescriptions – see 'More info' below.
Single vision lenses are free with all orders. Other lenses and lens packages can be added at an additional cost.
It's not valid when you spend £49 or more on several cheaper frames. Delivery is free with the code (normally £3.95).
If you copy and paste the code, make sure there are no spaces either side of it as this can prevent it from working. If you're still having difficulty, try clearing your cookies and starting again.
If you need bifocal lenses you'll have to pay an extra £39, and it's an extra £49 for varifocals.
This deal won't work on very strong prescriptions
Orders for very strong prescriptions are excluded, such as when the combined SPH and CYL is greater than +/-8.00, when the CYL is over +/-4.00, if there is more than a 5.00D difference between each eye or if the prism correction is over 4.00 in any direction.
Free 'Home Trial'
Glasses Direct offers a free 'Home Trial' service, where you can choose some frames to be sent to you, so that you can try them on at home and see if you like them. It's told us that as long as you order a Home Trial from your account before the code expires, Glasses Direct will honour the code up to a week after it expires.
You don't need to buy the same frames that you tried, but if the code's expired you'll need to call Glasses Direct on 01793 746601 to place the order.

Need-to-knows for getting the cheapest price
- Pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package. Thinner or scratch-resistant lenses 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.
- Select 'Royal Mail Standard' delivery at £4.99 if you want the cheapest option.
See 'More info' below for T&Cs.
You can use the codes more than once but can only use one code per item, per transaction - so you'll need to make multiple transactions if you want more than one item. The codes get you free delivery (norm £4.99), and takes 7-20 working days. Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra.
SpeckyFourEyes says there are good stock levels available, but all frames are subject to availability, so they could still sell out fast if demand is high.
If you're a new customer to online glasses and contact lens retailer Vision Direct*, enter the MSE Blagged code MSE11 to get 11% off everything on site. Delivery's £2.98. It can't be used with other offers.
Vision Direct may not always be the cheapest retailer, even with the code, so make sure to always do your own price comparisons.
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:
- Vision Express from £50
- Glasses Direct from £68
- Specsavers from £69
