3 step easy ordering:
HOW DO I OBTAIN A PRESCRIPTION? You can get your eyes tested by any high street optician. The usual price is between £15 and £25 although some of the large supermarket chains sometimes offer free eye tests.
WHY CAN'T I SELECT THE VALUES SHOWN ON MY PRESCRIPTION? The glasses man will provide lenses up to a + or - 6 sph and up to a + or - 2.25 cyl only. Anything over this is not possible online as it may require personal service. The Glasses Man can provide lenses above these powers to customers in the Greater Manchester area as we can make a personal visit. Call or email.
CAN I ORDER FRAMES WITH LENSES WITH NO PRESCRIPTION? Yes you are welcome to do this but we provide lenses of the same quality plastic material so there is no reduction in the cost as these look the same as normal glasses. We do not provide the frames only with no lenses in.
DO YOU SELL TINTS AND LENS COATINGS? Yes Anti reflection coating (ideal for driving and computer work), permanent tint (light or dark or inbetween) this helps with sun glare. Scratch resistant coating (comes free on all our lenses). UV400 (on sunglasses or glasses of your choice to protect from harmfull uv rays) Add these on to you order.
WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SO LOW? This is because I work from home and don't have to rent space and staff and expensive testing equipment. The savings are passed onto the customer.
DO YOU OFFER A REFUND IF I AM NOT HAPPY WITH MY GLASSES? Yes of course. We offer a no quibbles full refund on return of the glasses. The refund should appear on your card within 5 to 6 days (sorry we can't offer refunds of postage cost).
I MADE A MISTAKE WHEN ORDERING. WHAT SHOULD I DO? Just contact us soon as possible by email or phone and we can try to resolve it as we process orders very quickly the sooner you contact us the better.
WHAT IF MY GLASSES NEED ADJUSTING? Most optical stores will do an adjustment for free but even if they charge a little with the money you have saved through The Glasses Man it won't hurt your pocket too much. (Adjustments can be made by The Glasses Man if you live within Greater Manchester)
WHAT ARE YOUR LENSES MADE OF? Our lenses are made of the standard optical plastic. It is very rare nowadays that people have glass lenses. The new plastic lenses are much lighter and safer.
WHAT PAYMENT METHODS ARE AVAILABLE? Online pament by credit or debit card is via PayPal. At the moment I can only accept cheque or cash if you are in the greater Manchester area in which case you can pay when I bring the glasses to you.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE? Glasses usually take about 14 days sometimes less but some complicated prescriptions may take slightly longer.
WHAT IS THE COST OF POST? I charge a set payment of £2.25
DO I NEED TO SEND A COPY OF MY PRESCRIPTION? No just fill in the details online when you are ordering. If you need help with this please call or email me.
DO YOU SELL PRESCRIPTION GLASSES TO CHILDREN? No sorry I cannot provide glasses to persons under the age of 16 - sorry it's the law.
CAN I USE MY CONTACT LENS PRESCRIPTION? No a contact lens prescription is different.
DO YOU ACCEPT NHS VOUCHERS? No sorry, NHS vouchers are not accepted.
DO YOU SELL BI-FOCALS? Yes we do but certain measurements are necessary. Call or email for advice.
DO YOU SELL VARI-FOCALS? Yes we do but certain measurements are necessary. Call or email for advice.
DO I NEED TO ORDER THIN LENSES? This depends on your prescription we would advise that for a prescription over a +4.00 or -4.00 sph or a cyl of over +3.00 or -3.00 that you would be better off with a thinner lens but this is up to you as this increases the price. But if you have a prescription that is very strong i.e. over + or -7.00 sph sometimes thin lenses are necessary for the lens to fit into the frame and this will reduce the weight of the glasses and improve the cosmetic appearance.
I REALLY LIKE MY EXISTING FRAME CAN YOU REGLAZE IT FOR ME? Yes of course reglaze start at just £20 per frame. Call or email.
All lenses are supplied with a free anti -scratch coating. Please note no lenses are completely scratch resistant – good care still needs to be taken.

1.6 thin lenses add £20
