    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a site for prescription glasses, specifically sunglasses? Just got back from a local Opticians who quoted me £408 for a new pair! :eek:

    I've used smartbuyglasses.co.uk before for prescription sunglasses. Saved a fortune. I found the frames I wanted and simply scoured the web for a company that stocked them. Then just had to provide prescription details. A week later glasses arrived. Job done :)

    I have been using selectspecs, they sell sunglasses but I have only bought regular glasses, the last ones i got were Oakley chamfer with photochromic lenses, they cost less than £90, rxsport do a lot of sunglasses but they are more expensive and they will only put Oakley lenses in Oakley frames for sunglasses
