Ordered reglazing with Specs By Post more than a year ago, was so impressed I immediately thought of them when I needed the same done. Their system kept my order so reordering took all of 30 seconds. I shipped my glasses out to them and got it back in 2 days. During that time, I got email updates. Also they clean my glasses thoroughly as part of their service. Really can't find any fault with them. Price is as good as their service so I wouldn't hesitate. Much deserving of this review! (read more)

I found Spec-by-post on a Google search after being told by D&A that it would cost be £140+ to reglaze the glasses i brought from their shop 3 years ago!! I saw the positive reviews on here and contacted Specs by post and the lady was so helpful I decided to use their service. I posted my glasses on Wednesday and I received my glasses back today (Monday) with new lenses and paid just £27 including the special delivery. I can't believe what a quick and efficient service they have provided... (read more)

I would never recommend them to my friends or family and I will never purchase glasses from this company again!!. (read more)

Can't believe how fast my glasses arrived (3-4 days) and I am very happy with them and their service. I have always used overseas online stores before but weren't too happy with the quality. I only came to know about Specs By Post after googling and reading the reviews here so thought it only fair I came back to post. I recommend them and shall be back. (read more)

Their service is the best that I have ever received, even after I had told them that I had accidently broken my frames they provided me with a replacement pair at no cost to me, in fact they paid the delivery charge of £2.30, a truly amazing company. Robert Clarke. (read more)

Ordered bifocal transitions glasses on Wednesday about 10am. Thursdays postman knocked on the door and there they were exactly as ordered just over 24 hours from ordering. Amazing. Having said that I wouldn't want Specs by Post to have to live up to this with everyone's order as it was truly exceptional. I have used them before and the glasses have always been good quality and have arrived quickly - within 3 days at a fraction of the cost at the optician. (read more)

I can't rate this company highly enough. I have had three of my own frames glazed and I am extremely pleased with the attention to detail, customer relations and the quality of the lenses. Before buying on-line I always try to read reviews of products or companies and this is the first time I've reviewed anything myself but as I think it's a superb company, I'm doing so. I hope Specs By Post thrives but doesn't change its core values, service level and basically very friendly and... (read more)

I had to have new sunglasses quickly after having a complete prescription change.

What can I add to the other comments giving Spec-by-post excellent reviews. I sent an email to them at 0645 one morning to ask which of their spectacles had spring hinges on the arms - (yes I know its ridiculous time to send an email) Amazingly, I received a reply within a few minutes. Two days later, I had my prescription from SpecSavers, but I was unsure what details to insert on the order form as I required the lens for Computer work. I sent off another email and yes, Linsey replied... (read more)

This is an amazing service. All you do is send in your glasses with your optician's prescription. Specs by Post take the PD measurement (the one the optician will never give you) from your current glasses and replace the lenses in your glasses or put new ones in the frames you have just bought. I did this recently and all it cost me was £20 plus about £3 for postage - the opticians were going to charge me nearly £100 for exactly the same service. With a current prescription there...

Specs by post are a great company to deal with, ordering is as easy as pie and delivery was within 48 hours!

Do not hesitate to use Specs by Post. It is the best efficient service and quality for a fraction of the high street opticians.
My husband and I also family members have used this company and cannot praise it too highly.
If your unsure of anything just ring them up and speak to Linsey.
She most certainly knows her job, what brilliant customer service.

Excellent service in terms of delivery time and quality of product. Already recommended to 2 other friends who were amazed that an online service was as good as this. People may be put off by the price (being too low) and think that they will be buying rubbish. All I can say is try them and if they are not up to standard then you have not lost much. Dont see myself buying from the high street any time soon. (read more)

I previously ordered some prescription glasses from another online optician. They were cheap and inferior Chinese (case and frame)rubbish and I claimed my money back.
I then tried Specs by Post - what a difference.
The spectacles and the case are superb and I cannot fault them.
Emails kept me informed on the order including the despatch date, anyway I received them within 3 days of ordering.
Highly recommended and I will certainly use again. (read more)

I thought I would give Specs by Post a try as I was looking to try a pair of frameless glasses, and the cheapest pair I could find that I liked was £169 in Specsavers. Opted for a pair at £45 from Specs by Post and I'm very glad I did. The order was delivered within 48 hours of ordering and the quality is impressive. Pleasant and helpful lady on the phone was happy to answer my questions beforehand. Highly reccomended, and will certainly use again. (read more)

I am absolutely delighted with the excellent service, cost, speed and efficiency of Specs-by-Post. About a week ago I lost my reading glasses and had to resort to a pair of distance specs. I found Specs-by-Post online and spoke to them the following day with my choice of frame. They turned these round within the week and I received the specs exactly a week later.

Bought a pair of what I expected to be cheap and cheerful prescription glasses from Specs By Post on-line and have been delighted with the quality of both product and service. The glasses arrived back within 4 days and the glasses are of the same quality as what I typically used to buy from D&A but forabout a third of the price! About £25 as opposed to about £80.
The only sub-standard element of the purchase was the cheap and nasty case and cloth, but I have just binned them and am using... (read more)

I used Specs By Post's reglazing service last week to replace the lenses on 5 pairs of my glasses, including my favourite sunglasses.
I sent the frames off on Tuesday, and was called first thing wednesday morning and advised that one pair of vintage sunglasses I sent would not be suitable for reglazing. They quickly recalculated the cost, tore up my cheque and allowed me to pay the new, lower amount by card.
On Friday, all of my glasses returned, perfectly reglazed, carefully packaged and (to... (read more)

In my opinion Specs by Post are-Selling glasses for their true price
--In some cases they're cheaper than Glasses Direct - espicially for very basic designs which are from £12 to £15, whereas Glasses Direct is a minimum of £20 usually. Last pair weren't a very good fit but I didn't think so much about the measurements. I would highly recommend them (read more)

Received my specs today! They are probably the best pair of glasses I have had in the last 10 years. Firstly, they were the only people who said "yes" to rimless glasses for my specific prescription. I went to all the high street opticians only to be told that they couldn't and wouldn't do them, as my astigmatisms were too high. Secondly, even if they would do them, I would have to pay over £250 for them. A friend suggested using "Specs by Post", as she said their thin and lites were... (read more)

I received my first pair with four days, unfortunately I had made a mistake with the sizing, I was able to return them and re order another pair having first discussed it all a memver of staff.
On a purely monetary level the glasses are as good as I have paid £90-120 for in the past
I am now going to order reading glasses and tinted driving glasses.
It is a pleasure doing business with people who actually care about what they are doing and care about the customer

10 out of 10 for specs by post. I purchased a pair of Versace frames on ebay and thought I got a great buy until optical outlets advised it would cost well over £100 just for the lenses, so the frames sat in my bag untouched for several months. Then I had an idea to google for lenses and found specs by post who quoted well below £100. I am now a proud owner of a pair of glasses that should retail at £300 for a fraction of the cost.
