A Great Present This Christmas!
What are people saying about Mad About Specs?
“I am so so happy I chose to buy my glasses with Mad About Specs. I usually buy my glasses at SpecsSavers however I wanted something a little different. After looking online I found MadAboutSpecs and loved their clear glasses. I ordered two pairs with lenses with 50% off. Both pairs of glasses cost less than I would usually pay for one pair at specs savers. I am so so pleased and my glasses came very quickly..”

So happy I decided to use Mad About Specs
“I got my eyes tested at a high street optician and usually opt for glasses in store but stylish frames I like I generally find pretty expensive. I had a look around online and found this company, reading up on them they are quite small and I liked their ethos and transparency on the website about their owners. I tried their free trial with 4 pairs of frames which was super helpful to see what suited me, as obviously not going in store to try them on.
I ordered my glasses and emailed my prescription on a Saturday. They shipped out my order 13 days later on Friday, which really was 10 working days (my prescription was a little complex). I spoke to them a couple of times throughout the process and they were happy to update me on the time scale.
My glasses were delivered today my Royal Mail and they were packaged so beautifully (wish I could upload a pic!!) with sturdy cases and even a sweet little bottle of cleaning fluid and a key ring screwdriver to adjust them. The glasses themselves are great quality, comfy and stylish, I really love them!
The promotion code I used on their website meant I got two pairs of fashionable glasses with anti glare lenses for £80 which is really competitive considering the prices of high street opticians and designer frames, which I have absolutely no faith in the quality of (ahem my old Marc Jacobs glasses where the logo scratched off after about 2 weeks of wear..!).
Could not recommend them enough and hope to use them again in the future.. :-)”

Really Great Customer Service
“Really great customer service. Managed to get the last pair of frames available in the style I wanted, despite them being sold out on the website. Overall, very pleased with my glasses.”
Brilliant Service and Delivery
“Brilliant service and delivery. The home trial is such a good idea: I’ve got three young children which makes finding new glasses difficult, so having 4 sent home to try out is brilliant! My husband is ordering his home trial now too! The glasses I chose are stylish and feel really well made. Thank you.”
