I also FINALLY ordered myself a pair of new glasses, after shamefully owning a pair that got me through a couple of years. Since working from home, and spending many hours in front of the computer, and starting to get headaches again, I knew it was time to buy a new pair!!
I searched high and low for months for 'the' pair, that would suit me! Not an easy task. I swear I spent way to many hours of my life in opticians, trying to find the pair. However when I did find the frames that suited my face, they were pretty expensive, so I had to save for a bit before I took the plunge. However after doing a bit of research online, I found it was much cheaper to order the glasses online as you could save yourself a good couple of £££'s! After searching high and low, and seeing websites that looked quite dodgy, I came across Pret A Voir. At the time, they didn't have the size I was after online, but thanks to their online chat feature. I was able to chat to someone from their office and they took my details and said they would email me as soon as they came in stock!
A few days later, an email popped up in my inbox, they were in!! I picked up the phone and ordered there and then!! They also matched a price I found on one of their competitors website. Due to them being prescription, they said they would take a week, however 4 days later they arrived via special delivery!! I was amazed by the speedy-ness of the service. The customer service on the phone was truly amazing, which doesn't happen very often these days. I actually don't know why I didn't order sooner, as it's amazing how much clearer I can see!!
