Glasses are pretty popular in the UK. It’s estimated that around 70% of the UK population wears glasses and I am one of them. And if like me, you wear your glasses every day, you need to find the perfect pair for you.
I like to stay on top of my eye health and have regular check-ups. The last time I had a check-up I wanted a pair of new glasses and sunglasses. Alas! I was only able to get my normal glasses. The place was packed out and I couldn’t get close to choosing a pair. So I said I would go back another day and pick out a pair. That day never came. Which was stupid because I wear my sunglasses as much as I wear my glasses. I’m not sure why but I seem to have a sensitivity to natural light when I go outside. It doesn’t saw anything on my little prescription card as to why, but I don’t speak optician.
The problem with wearing my sunglasses as much as my glasses is I should have prescription sunglasses. I always end up complaining when I have a headache about my lack of tinted eyewear that will help. So I finally put on my big girl pants and went to the optician to get a pair. But when I had a look at the prices I wished I hadn’t looked. The prices of the sunglasses were extortion! The Universe must have heard me curse and scoff under my breath because a few days later I was contacted by Perfect Glasses UK and they asked if I would like a pair of their glasses.
Perfect Glasses was launched in 2009 and has become one of the largest online retailers for glasses. There are over 3,000 different glasses to choose from and they prices start at £9. I don’t know about anyone else but I’m an accessory freak, so having cheap glasses to choose from would really help to expand my wardrobe. But I wasn’t after plain ones, I needed something tinted. Thankfully they have a massive range of sunglasses to choose from, including designer frames. I was spoilt for choice and ended up with this awesome pair.
This pair was from Opium range and was fitted with my prescription lens. I know some people might be sitting there going, “I like to try my glasses on before I buy them”. Well, with this site you kind of can. You can use the camera of your phone or PC to capture what you would look like with the glasses on. But if they arrive and you don’t like them, the site has a no quibble return policy. Within 7 days my new specs had arrived and I was feeling fancy with them!
The frames are a beautiful rose gold effect that are nice and weighty. I’ll be honest, I had expected them to be lighter because I have a cheap pair of blue ones that are very similar in style. So my little mind assumed that the two pairs would be pretty similar and not the best quality. But these are nothing like the cheap frames and the quality of the product is clear when you have a pair in your hand.
Overall, I’m really happy with these new sunglasses. They are great quality, a reasonable price, and the site offers great customer service.
