REGLAZING specialists, is helping budget-conscious consumers who wear glasses, after it was revealed that thousands of people are forking out for new prescription lenses and frames unnecessarily and paying over-the-odds for reglazing services on the high street.

On average, spec-wearers spend around £170 on a pair of new glasses – lenses and frames – every two or three years, with many spending up to £500. However, by having their frames reglazed with new lenses, whenever they need a new prescription, or their lenses get scratched or damaged, they could save hundreds of pounds.

James Hunter, Director of is keen to make the 60 per cent of Britons who wear prescription eyewear aware of the savings they could be making, both in terms of buying new lenses and frames, and the cost of reglazing on the high street:

“If just one in five people who bought new glasses every year chose to have their current pair reglazed instead, over £200 million could be saved. If you like your frames, or they are a particularly expensive designer brand, and you just need a new prescription, there’s no need to completely trade-in for a new pair. Reglazing your lenses will give you the same result, for a fraction of the cost of new lenses or glasses.

“Furthermore, those who do opt for reglazing through their current optician may be paying more than they should. We offer a comprehensive reglazing service for all types of lenses, with a clear pricing policy, starting from just £19. We offer savings of between 50% and 70% compared to the cost charged by high street opticians”. offers a quick, hassle-free reglazing service, whereby customers send their glasses to be assessed via a free post pack, and are then contacted by telephone to discuss the options and prices for their glasses. Glasses are reglazed and sent back to the customer, in the post, at no extra charge.”

To ensure you keep your glasses looking their best, recommends the following tips:

• Investing in scratch and shatter resistant lenses can help prevent and minimise damage
• Always rinse your glasses under warm water before cleaning them, to remove any particles, and avoid scratching and always ensure your lens cloth is clean - if it's dirty it will scratch your lenses
• Always keep your glasses in a strong, protective glasses case when you are not wearing them to avoid damage, dirt and scratches.
