Online spectacle suppliers got a bit of a bashing in The Mail this week over the supply of new specs. All of the specs were considerably cheaper than the High Street and huge savings were had. The problems seemed to be with the accuracy of the prescription, guessing of the p.d, fitting of the frame, long delivery time and poor communications. Overall the UK suppliers came out the best though. It is a shame that equivalent specs from the High Street weren’t used too as a comparison, to see if they were any better? See the link below to the article in The Mail.
We at ciliaryblue, recognised that the supply of frames with prescription lenses could cause problems, it is hard enough to choose frames when you can try them on, to do it from a picture on the screen must even more so. So we opted to reglaze only. That way, in most cases you are using a frame that fits already, or at least one you have tried and chosen. The p.d is never guessed, the prescription lenses are checked for power when manufactured then before we glaze them and after we have finished, so accuracy is very important. The delivery only normally takes a few days, we send a box to you to put the frames in to send to us, we reglaze and send straight back, this is supported all the way with emails informing you of the progress of your reglaze! So if you have any doubts using online frame suppliers, reglaze instead and still save yourself a small fortune.
ciliaryblue can reglaze glasses for you with standard prescription single vision lenses tinted in either grey, green or brown for only £22. Theses lenses give full UV protection. This price includes all postage, packing and glazing charges. Probably the cheapest you’ll find anywhere? These lenses need to be ordered manually, so ring on 0845 6262008 or email us at email@example.com and we will process your order for you. Once ordered a pre-paid, pre-addressed box will be sent to you to send the frames to us, we will then reglaze and send straight back, a simple easy process.
We have been experimenting now for some time adding Swarovski® Rhinestones to the outside edge of a lens for decoration and to disguise the thickness of the lens (with high short sighted prescriptions). The crystals are not just glued to the edge of the lens as this makes them liable to come away. We instead drill a small conical impression in the lens and fit the crystal into it. This makes them more secure and gives a fantastic look. The crystals are foil backed so reflections and apperance is improved. The extra charge for this per pair is £30 (5 crystals per lens) if more crystals are wanted please call for details. It is better be done with rimless and is better with higher minus powers (short sighted). We can add to the front surface of a lens for appearance only and is added away from any line of sight.
