This e-mail came in from a regular ValueIreland.com reader in recent days. It shows a potential option for getting cheaper eye glasses up North. If you’re up there already doing your shopping and want to take advantage, it could be worth a bit of planning to arrange an eye check up and so on.
Three years have passed and I went to see about an eye test and the cost of a new pair of glasses – to Vision Express Liffey Valley. To match what I had with test came to nearly €900. That set me thinking what this might cost in N.I. so this morning I went to Craigavon for a change to the Rushmere Centre, very uncrowded, not like Newry… and into Spec Savers.
I bought Designer Glasses, the whole caboodle, better quality than my previous ones, and a second pair for £580 including the eye test for £17.
I am talking variofocal lenses as thin as thin can be. They were so professional and helpful. I would have got the eye test cost back down here and some small stipend towards the glasses BUT I would still be poor.
I highly recommend this company at this address. For ordinary eyes that are just a tad worn, the glasses would be far less expensive.
The most expensive Designer glasses were less than £200, the one in Liffey Valley were about €400 – that is the one I was interested in.
So OPEN YOUR EYES folks!
