Once you have got through the barrier of using an online supplier, Glasses Direct are very good. I found you had to work out what your prescription means and that is quite difficult as they can be quite difficult to decipher. Ring the opticians who did your eye test if you need to clarify. It's possible to talk to Glasses Direct opticians one to one as well.
Online suppliers are much more reasonable than High Street chains: you realise how much the High Street chains are making out of the whole process. However there are better offers even online from time to time, so hang on for them! Personally I don't want a second pair - they aren't as free as they make out anyway as the only 'free' part is the frames and bog-standard lenses.
One item that does not necessarily appear on your prescription is the measurement between pupils, and it's worth taking care over this: either send your old glasses in or get someone reliable to measure it if the eye test didn't do it.
The main difference between online and ordinary shopping is that you have to be much more careful deciding what to buy. For that, you can have frames sent to you to try. I found the selection very wide.
The review was easy and quick, but then a password was requested and I was told it was wrong! I haven't used the site before so am confused. Not good for a review site! I had to use facebook, and I don't like to leave info like that.

I would buy from these people again but would not expect early delivery. They have a surprisingly wide product offering but the stuff I ordered arrived very late simply because one of the items must have been out of stock. If they had let me know I would'nt have been too bothered but I heard nothing. I think I got in contact in the end. I think their systems are a bit pants which is a shame because it lets them down.
