Sent them back with a covering letter categorically stating (twice) that I wanted a refund and not an exchange, as I didn't want to wait another couple of weeks. Obviously as the goods were neither as ordered nor fit for purpose I was clearly entitled to a full refund.
So, of course (having taken my custom elsewhere) they sent two new pairs, and was a pain to get that resolved.
Specsavers ... and it cost me an arm and a leg last time. I need varifocals and prescription sunglasses. It doesn't come cheap
Tell me about it. Glasses, contact lenses, prescription sunglasses, prescription swimming goggles.
It's an expensive business being blind!
+1 for Tesco. My wife got two pairs, can't remember how much but it was a bargain by all accounts.
hahaha just had a thought, can you imagine what tesco value specs would look like?
Fully Agreed, I need to get new prescription sunglasses this summer its been about 5 years since I got them done, I am still legal to drive but I can tell they are due changing as they are not as crisp as they were.
Costs me around about £300 every two years at the opticians
Specsavers for me, excellent customer service.
I personally think it's much better to use a high street for glasses, on-line can't take your measurements for the best fit etc.

lol @ Jarvis
I've never gone online but am sorely tempted. Fancy some John Lennon frames
My local high street optician had to send 5 sets back to their manufacturer as the coating was peeling on every pair. Got a free pair out of it in the end.
As we get subsidised eye tests from the LA I've been to a high street opticians that I trust for the test, and then specsavers for the glasses.
I'm a 5 year turnaround @ £300 person myself too. Damned expensive.
By "subsidised" I hope you mean "free", as you should be considered a user of Display Screen Equipment?
Just in case anyone is planning on getting a eye test, I read in one of my wife's journals (she's an Optician) a few days ago that Tesco are planning on giving free sight tests for all in the near future. You'll be under no obligation to buy specs from them to be able to qualify for the free test. They have piloted it in a few areas and it seems to have worked well.

Regardless of Tesco's offer, if you are required to do a significant amount of work with computers, your employer is legally required to provide an eyesight test.
