A recent article in the Optcial Press outlined how many Optical practitioners fear supermarket Opticians like Tesco’s and Asda more so than online retailers. I seem to recall a few years ago, mention being made to how online supply of contact lenses would never affect High Street Opticians, but it has. The sale of spectacles online will get larger and larger as the public have less and less money to spend. ciliaryblue don’t sell any frames and we will not reglaze without a real p.d measurement. You will save money, receive the same level of professionalism and you’ll be glad you went online for your reglaze.

The summer has definately started! Do you have a separate pair of prescription glasses and never really wear them? Why not have lenses put in your glasses that change for you in the sunlight! These lenses really are very good and can be done in single vision, varifocals etc. We rang around to find out what they will cost you on the High Street, here are some examples, and do remember that Specsavers are the cheapest on the High Street!
1.56 Reactions HC Us £45 Specsavers £88 Saving £43
1.67 Reactions HC/MAR Us £95 Specsavers £198 Saving £103

Many European Holiday destinations sell spectacle frames at a huge discount, you really should take advantage and buy. You can get designer frames at very low prices, and you are likely to get frames that you wont see in the UK from Gucci, Cavalli, D&G DKNY etc. You can get them in Spain, Turkey, Portugal, Greece, etc. So when you get home with the frames, log on and preserve the saving you have made and have us (ciliaryblue) reglaze them for you, again with a huge saving! So when you’re travelling abroard visit the duty free at the airport and get yourself a bargain.�
