How Much Do Glasses Cost?

One of the first questions we’re asked is ‘How much will new glasses cost’?

We get it! Price matters, and it’s an important factor when it comes to picking your glasses. It isn’t the only thing to think about when you’re finding the right prescription pair for your needs. But it often influences the type of frame and the kind of lenses your select.

That’s why here at Station Road Opticians we give you a full range of options for your eyewear, so you can find high-quality frames and lenses to match your look, lifestyle and budget.

There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach here. It matters to us that you have an individual eyewear experience, and get the professional advice you need to find your ideal glasses. (Even if we don’t end up being the right opticians for you, we’ll even help you find another that is.)

So this guide aims to provide you with more information on how much you can expect to spend on your specs.

Frames Prices

Here at Station Road Opticians we’re passionate about unique and stylish frames sourced from the finest eyewear designers around the globe. 

Our handpicked selection is of the highest quality and curated to give you better choices for your personality, face shape and size, comfort, lifestyle and budget.

Our frames start from just £99, and from this price we can help you find a high-quality and stylish frame. 

Most of the frames in our collection are between £295 and £595. At this price range, you’ll have a fantastic choice of fashionable, unique and handmade designs and styles.

Should you fancy the most luxurious and exclusive eyewear in our collection? (We wouldn’t blame you!) If so, the investment in your frame will be higher.

Lenses Prices

To make sure your glasses perfectly correct your vision, we use lenses of the highest quality for the best results. 

Our lenses all include premium coatings for anti-scratch, anti-glare, anti-smear and protection from UV. This means you’re in safe hands with your choice of lenses, no matter what your specific requirements are. 

And just as with our frames, we also have a wide range of lenses to give you better choices. Our professional team are on hand to give you all the personal attention, time and expert advice you need to decide on the right lenses for your needs – from your prescription, to your lifestyle, comfort, look and budget.

If you’re a ‘single vision’ glasses wearer, e.g. near vision glasses or distance, our quality lenses are priced from £180. (We can help you with basic single vision lenses for just £95, but it’s our honest opinion that stepping up to the quality range will offer you significantly better visual comfort.)

From this point, you can choose the most suitable grade and thickness single vision lenses for you, right up to the ‘best of the best’ (£490).

If you’re a ‘varifocal’ glasses wearer, basic varifocals are priced from just £295. For quality (advanced) varifocal lenses made with state of the art technology, your options start at £450. 

From this point, you can choose the most suitable grade and thickness varifocals for you, right up to the ‘best of the best’ (£800).

Right! So what about the price of glasses, frames and lenses together?

If you’re happy with glasses that’ll ‘get the job done’, our lowest price glasses are our ‘complete’ deals (frame and lenses) that are £150 for single vision glasses and £295 for varifocal glasses. Our ‘complete’ deal glasses can be chosen from a set range of frames with entry-level lenses – a sure bet for feel-good glasses that’ll correct your vision.

If you’ve want to find unique glasses with distinctive style, handmade quality and original designer flair, the investment in your glasses will start at £279 for single vision or £374 for varifocals.

Because most of our clients are looking for glasses they’ll love to wear, they’ll invest more like £550 to £650 in their glasses if they wear single vision lenses, or more like £850 to £995 if they wear varifocal lenses. This means they can choose their perfect-match frames and lenses without any compromise on their look or vision. 

We also offer additional membership savings, and flexible payment options for your eyewear, to make choosing your ideal glasses as affordable and stress-free as possible (for all the details about these, keep reading).

Ultimately we care about helping you find the right glasses for you, and that means giving you options to suit all the factors that matter to you – budget, style, quality and comfort).

And Does This Mean Glasses Are… Expensive?

Great question! There are lots of boxes to tick so you can get the most out of your eyewear. Afterall your glasses are much more than just sight correction – they can have a big influence on you look, how you feel and how you live your life. 

That’s why, honestly, the answer to this is it depends on how much your glasses mean to you.

Will you wear our glasses every day – potentially for years to come? Are you glasses a big part of your look and style, on your face most of the time when you’re out? How do you want to feel in your glasses? Do you want the most comfortable possible vision in your daily life?

It might well be that your investment in glasses at Station Road is more than you’ve spent before. It’s true for many people who come to us for the first time. But when you have glasses that you love wearing, it’s also true you’ll feel like you’ve gotten a lot more value for money…

Can you explain the 'More Value' bit further?

Another great question! At Station Road Opticians we’re passionate about help people discover glasses they love – ones that make you look and feel fab, and perfectly correct your vision. 

So, our lenses are first-rate and made with advanced technology to give you the clearest, most comfortable vision. And our expert team will be on hand for the support and advice you need, should you have any questions once you take your glasses home.

Plus, our passion for unique, stylish frames means that you enjoy high quality frames carefully selected from top independent and specialist eyewear designers around the globe. 

We offer wide range of designs, shapes and sizes for the best choices to perfectly match to your unique features. Think frames that you simply won’t find elsewhere in regular opticians – frames made with finesse and originality from high-end materials to give you an individual look. 

Our frames are often only made in small quantities, specially created for comfort and long-lasting quality so they’re a worthy investment for years to come.

(As such the frames in our collection do cost more than the “designer” options you see everywhere. You know, the ones mass-produced and mass-marketed to be worn on as many faces as possible – which are mostly just generic models made for multiple brands at the same factories..)

Ultimately each week we work with clients who’ve gone to regular and ‘chain store’ opticians before, but now have the ultimate eyewear they’ve always wanted. So, their investment in their glasses makes lots of sense – and they choose to return again for their next pair.

Making Payments Easier With Our Flexible Payment Plans

To make choosing your perfect glasses as affordable and stress-free as possible, we give you options for easier payments. 

Our flexible payment plans allow you to spread the cost of your glasses, so you never have to compromise your vision of style – and can start wearing them without delay.

It was a joy from start to finish and I would highly recommend them for an overall excellent service.

What a lovely experience I had at Station Road opticians. I had a in depth eye test with Deepak and Kate helped me choose some new frames. Kate completely understood the type of frames that would suit me and I was able to make a decision without too much fuss. It was a joy from start to finish and I would highly recommend them for an overall excellent service.

"They Certainly Provide An Excellent Service"

I have been going to these opticians since the business started… They certainly provide an excellent service. I am impressed by the range of equipment used to explore one’s eyes in such detail and I appreciate the advice for looking after my eyes that I am given. The glasses are always excellent and the range of frames is amazing. The team there provide a very friendly and attentive service.
