Did you know that you don't have to buy glasses from your opticians?

After your eye test you can request a paper copy of your prescription and get your glasses made up anywhere you choose, often at much cheaper prices!

Prescription glasses & sunglasses

Our aim is to save you money on your next prescription glasses and sunglasses. Simply bring your current prescription down to our factory shop in Ashton-under-Lyne to discuss your requirements.

Cannot believe the difference in price over the high street, without loss of quality in the glasses themselves.
