  • If you go online to glasses retailer Glasses Direct*, you can get a pair of varifocal lens glasses from £49. Simply enter the blagged code MSEVARIFOCAL until 11.59pm on Mon 30 Sep. Delivery's free. 

    The code gets you free 'Varifocal Advanced' lenses (norm £49) when you choose a pair of frames priced at £49 or above, plus free delivery. 

    Here's what to do:

    1. Find frames costing £49 or more. Glasses Direct has a range of frames priced from £49, and you can choose any (including Boutique frames) then click 'Select lenses'.

    2. Choose 'Varifocal Advanced' lenses. You'll be given a list of five different lens options. Select 'Varifocal' and then 'Varifocal Advanced' (it says these cost £49, but once you've entered the code at checkout, this will be taken off). See 'more info' below for other lens options. 

    Select 'clear' for transparent everyday glasses. 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 £49 off & free delivery. Once you've selected your lenses, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later. Then use the code MSEVARIFOCAL at the checkout by 11.59pm on Mon 30 Sep to get an £49 off the varifocal lenses and free delivery. 

    If you don't need varifocals, see our Cheap Glasses page for other glasses deals.

    • With the code, 'Varifocal Elite HD' lenses will cost an extra £30 (norm £79) and 'Varifocal Supreme HD' lenses will cost an extra £50 (norm £99). 

      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.

      The majority of single vision orders are shipped within 7 days from order date, though during busy times this may extend up to 14 days. However if your prescription is more complex or you've chosen extras, it could take longer.

  • You can get two pairs of glasses for £16 delivered if you use our MSE Blagged code MSE16SEPT on top of two existing Glasses Direct* offers, before 11.59pm on Mon 23 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 MSE16SEPT at the checkout by 11.59pm on Mon 23 Sep to get an extra £33 off ANY glasses where individual frames cost £49 or more (before the 2for1 discount), and free delivery. 

    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.

    This deal won't work on very strong prescriptions - see 'More info' below.

    Check out our cheap glasses page for other glasses deals, or if you need varifocals, see Glasses Direct varifocals from £49. Also it might be worth checking if you qualify for free glasses using NHS vouchers.

    MSE Laura says:

    While it once ran a ‘two for £15’ offer (£1 cheaper), this is usually the absolute cheapest deal from Glasses Direct - beating its standard 2 for £19 offer, which you may have seen advertised. I think most will agree two pairs of prescription specs for £16 delivered is a cracking deal.

    A particularly good feature is that if you're unsure about the style of glasses you'd like or if you're wondering if a certain pair would suit you, Glasses Direct has a 'Home Trial' service where it’ll send you some frames to try out before you buy.  See 'More info' below for full details. 

    • 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 to place the order. You can call it on 01793 746601. 

  • New glasses can be expensive, but there are ways to save money at online glasses retailer Glasses Direct*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

    Ways to save include:

    • Get two pairs for the price of one. Select the 2for1 from £49* option from the drop down boxes at the top of the home page, and you could get two pairs of glasses with basic lenses for £49. Delivery's £3.49.
       
    • Sign up for the newsletter. Sign up for the Glasses Direct newsletter to receive information about current promotions. Glasses Direct doesn't have any physical stores making its overheads far lower than its high street competitors, so it's worth keeping an eye out (sorry) for the newsletter and on its website to check for offers. 
       
    • Change browsers or use 'incognito' mode. Sometimes Glasses Direct might give you different offers based on what you've previously browsed - so if an offer you wanted has disappeared, try clearing your cookies, using another browser or enabling the do not track 'incognito' mode on your browser.

    • Check out similar retailers, eg, Specsavers, Optical Express and SpeckyFourEyes. If you're not committed to buying from Glasses Direct, check out our deals from Specsavers, Optical Express and SpeckyFourEyes, where there may be a better offer.

Latest Expired Deals

  • £22 for prescription specs AND sunglasses

    £22 for prescription specs AND sunglasses

    Or £17 for two pairs of specs, or £27 for two sunglasses

    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.

  • 30% off designer specs, eg, £50 Ray-Ban specs (norm £71)

    30% off designer specs, eg, £50 Ray-Ban specs (norm £71)

    Blagged code for Glasses Direct. Incl Prada, Tiffany, Marc Jacobs & more

    If you go online to glasses retailer Glasses Direct*, you can get 30% off designer specs or sunglasses, using the blagged code MSEBOUTIQUE30, until 11.59pm on Mon 1 Jul. Delivery's free. 

    The code is valid on the 'Boutique' (branded) range and will only work on the frames, but single vision lenses are free with all orders. If you add on any lens options (eg, bifocals, lens coatings, tints etc.), these will cost extra and won't be discounted by 30%. See 'More info' below for full T&Cs.

    MSE Laura says:

    While Glasses Direct is mainly a prescription glasses retailer, you don't have to order prescription specs. So if you're just after a pair of sunglasses, you can choose 'Dark Tint' lenses and select your prescription as 'Plano' from the list of options. As the code only works on the frames and basic lenses, you'll pay £10 extra to make them sunnies.

    When I checked on Mon 24 Jun, using the code you can pick up a pair of Ray-Ban glasses* for £49.70 all-in. The next cheapest I found these were £57.53 at Edel-Optics. 

    Some of the frames are only available in certain sizes, so you may be best to filter by the size you need. You can do this by clicking 'Refine filters' and then choosing the size (frame width) you'd like.

    Even with the code, Glasses Direct may not always be cheapest, so always do your own price comparisons before buying. However, when buying designer products it's important to make sure they're the genuine article as there are a lot of fakes and imitations out there. If the price is too good to be true, it often is.

    • Single vision lenses are free with all orders. Other lenses and lens packages can be added at an additional cost. If you need bifocal lenses you'll have to pay an extra £39, and it's an extra £49 for varifocals.

      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.

      The majority of single vision orders are shipped within 7 days from order date, though during busy times this may extend up to 14 days. However if your prescription is more complex or you've chosen extras, it could take longer.
