How do I order?

If your prescription is older than two years, book an eye test with an optician or us.

If you haven’t already got a copy of your prescription, ask the optician who carried out your test. They are legally obliged to provide one immediately after your eye test and on request at no extra charge.

Browse our diverse collection of designer and own-brand glasses and sunglasses to find the pair you want.

Once you’ve selected your frames, move on to choosing your lenses. Select your reason for needing glasses e.g. for reading. If you are unsure, speak to one of our qualified opticians on 0113 345 2272

Send us your prescription via email to and one of our team will contact you.  If you have any other questions call our team on 0113 345 2272.
