Online specs ‘dangerous’

Posted on 26th May 2012

Surprise surprise, online spectacles are pretty rubbish. So rubbish that  much of the time they don’t even meet the basic British Standards and are potentially dangerous for your eyes says consumer watchdog Which.

Certain things can be bought online but specialist custom made appliances for correcting vision are best bought from a specialist where careful measurements and correct fitting ensures the health and well being of your entire visual system.

If you’re not happy with your glasses from online or elsewhere, come and see us. Vast experience, expertise and a cast-iron no-quibble guarantee means the best possible glasses for you.
