Review | Specsavers

We have been using Specsavers for a few years now. All of us regularly attend for eye tests, and both Gemma and Jacob have had glasses from there in the last 12 months. Up until now, I haven’t needed glasses, and have always walked away with a clean bill of health from my eye tests. But it seems age and a lot of time spent working at a computer have caught up with me, and at my most recent eye test it was recommended that I have glasses for computer work and reading. 

As usual, the eye test itself was professional and carried out quickly and efficiently. Following the eye test, I was given the opportunity to browse the wide range of frames. It was slightly overwhelming, and so one of the staff members came over to help, advising on the type of frames that would suit my face shape.


Because I have quite a small face, the staff helped me to choose small, rectangular frames. I selected two different brands – a red Puma pair and a black Karen Millen pair. The frames were adjusted to make sure they fit securely without any movement or slipping, before being sent off to have the correct prescription lenses added. I chose to have a scratch resistant and non glare coating added. 



When the glasses arrived I was invited in to have the fit checked, and I was really pleased. They were comfortable, and thanks to the advice from the team, they suited me. I have been using them for a few weeks now, and I have noticed that it is a lot easier to use the computer – the screen is crisper and clearer, and I don’t have aching eyes or headaches after a work session. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Specsavers to anybody. They have always been professional and friendly, both with myself and with the children. They offer a really rounded service, offering support and advice through every stage of the process, from eye tests and healthy eye advice to selection and fitting of frames.

    I used Specsavers last year and had a positive experience with them. They’re really good value for money especially if you’re looking for glasses for the first time. Having had my eyes tested at the same small family-run opticians since childhood, I wouldn’t make the switch as my current opticians knows me so well but they are more expensive than Specsavers. Glad that you had a good experience there too. #TriedTested

    I’ve just bought new glasses. It took me ages to choose frames that I liked and even now I’m not sure about them. Good to hear that you had a good experience with Spec Savers.

    I struggle with choosing too – so many options! Plus I can’t see what I look like in them because I can’t see without my prescription #triedtested

    I love your choice of frames. I’ve used Specsavers for about 20 years and love their high level of customer service. I always find that they have a quick turn around too. I could do with some new glasses, I find that my eye sight deteriorates and I need a new prescription every 2 years. I’ve thought about laser eye surgery but you can’t have it until your prescription is steady which mine isn’t. I love wearing glasses though as it feels part of my identity.

    I always use my local optician but my partner has used specsavers and always been impressed by the service 🙂 The problem with choosing frames is you can’t see your face in the mirror! #TriedTested

    My son started wearing glasses last year and all the parents I asked recommended Specsavers. They were so helpful and their range is fantastic.

    We’ve always used Specsavers and found them to be very good. Great for kids glasses too, my 5 year old loves his Spiderman frames. #TriedTested

    My Mum always struggles to get glasses for her small face too, usually has to get kids ones!

    I’ve never used Specsavers, but they sound like they offer a much better service than some I have been to! #TwinklyTuesday

    We reviewed the Kids Clinics at Specsavers and had a really good experience with them. They do offer good customer service. Love the glasses you picked #TriedTested x

    It’s so important to get a good pair that you like and don’t even notice are wearing. I recently changed mine and I am so pleased I did! #triedandtested

    I got new glasses this time last year but just couldn’t get used to them – they make me feel sick unfortunately so I’m going to have to have another go at getting some new ones this year.
