  • You may have seen Glasses Direct advertising 'two pairs of glasses for £19' - a good deal in itself - but you can actually make it £3 cheaper and get two pairs for £16 delivered if you use our MSE Blagged code MSESEPT16 on top of two existing Glasses Direct* offers, before 11.59pm on Mon 24 Sep.

    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 (Boutique frames are excluded), you'll be asked to choose your lens package. If you don't want any extras such as scratch-resistant coatings, you can avoid the extra costs by clicking on 'continue with basic lenses'.

    2. Code gets £33 off & free delivery. After adding the second pair to your basket, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later. Then use the code MSESEPT16 at the checkout by 11.59pm on Mon 24 Sep to get an extra £33 off ANY glasses where individual frames cost £49 or more (before the 2for1 discount). 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.

    Combining these offers could get you two pairs of glasses for just £16, 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.

    It's worth noting that 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, you'll be able to use the code once you've tried the frames and are ready to purchase some glasses, even if it's past the code expiry date.

    Free eye tests

    If your prescription is out of date, check if you can get a free eye test

    Check out our cheap glasses page for other glasses deals or if it’s contacts you’re after, take a look at our cheap lenses guide. Also it might be worth checking if you qualify for free glasses using NHS vouchers.

    • Single vision lenses are free with all orders. Other lenses and lens packages can be added at an additional cost.

  • You can get any Ted Baker glasses for £30 (norm £139), and any Ted Baker prescription sunnies for £40 (norm £149), if you enter the MSE Blagged code MSEBK at glasses retailer SpeckyFourEyes* via this special link by 11.59pm on Sun 30 Sep.

    When you use the code, delivery's free (norm £4.99) but will take 7-20 working days, so bear this in mind if you need glasses fast. Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra. You can use the code more than once, but for it to work on delivery as well, you can only order one item per transaction.

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

    • The code is valid on Ted Baker frames only, not on anything else on the site.
    • Once you've selected your Ted Baker frames, which are all the same price, you'll only get the price above if you pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package. If you want one of the 'Specky' packages, which include thinner and scratch-resistant lenses, it'll 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).
    • When asked to choose a delivery option, select 'Royal Mail Standard' at £4.99. The code gets you free delivery, so the cost will be taken off the final price.


    Alternatively, you can also use a different code MSEHK to get Hackett glasses for £33 or sunglasses for £43. 

    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.

  • 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:

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