I'm a new glasses-wearer and I'm not sure which style suits me. Currently just using the cheapo ones as my first pair. Is there a site that you can upload a headshot and simulate each style on your face?
(I hate going into Specsavers and trying on styles btw. I know, my own fault there).

I use this app to get idea of what styles suit but then buy online elsewhere

I think Zenni optical allow you to upload a head shot. Glasses are cheap too. I would measure a pair that are comfortable on your face before you proceed though. So you know where you stand.

Glasses direct let you upload a photo and do virtual try ons. They’ve a good first time order offer too - 40% all complete glasses over £49 and a free second pair. It worked out at about €37 delivered for 2 pairs, quality is brilliant too

Do they ship from Europe?

Because I had to pay custom tax on my Zenni order.

Forgive me for asking a possibly stupid question but as someone who only recently started wearing glasses for work, how would you get the correct lenses into these frames?

All the above are complete glasses, you provide your prescription and they are made to order. By law the opticians have to provide you with your prescription after your test is completed. The likes of specsavers or visionexpress will not volunteer it, they immediately push people into buying their glasses but you are within your rights to refuse and walk away with the prescription to order from someone else.


I recently bought 2 pairs from www.selectspecs.com for my mother, €33 including delivery and one pair had an extra charge for thinner lenses. Quality was fine, the metal ones were near identical to the previous specsavers ones she had paid several times as much for.

In fact she prefers the cheaper pair that cost €9 + delivery.

I did the Specsavers free eyetest. Left for an hour and came back and asked them for prescription. They weren't delighted but the only pair I liked in there were 250 quid.

I’ve had most of my glasses from Specsavers over the years but ended up needing a pair unexpectedly and had to use another optician. Turns out all those extras Specsavers pushed on me I didn’t really need.

I started getting them online and use 2 places and got some real designer frames.

Posheyes.co.uk ( highly recommended UK seller, great prices and a proper customer service )
Smartbuyglasses ( online and China based I think, prices are really good too )

As for finding the frames, well I visited vision express who have a good selection and took note of the numbers on the frame and ordered them that way.
