I used the home trial which meant I could try 5 frames, then sent back my prescription with the frames and the one I wanted and received my glasses much quicker than expected! I love them and cannot recommend enough - the customer service is great - always keeping you informed of where everything is up to 😁 thanks team!

Just received my prescription glasses. Really pleased with the service. The frames are a little different from what's on the high street which I like and the lenses and fitting - perfect. Super comms throughout and received within a week and a half - in am unwanted case!

To top it off it's environmentally and socially responsible.

Will be ordering prescription sunglasses with Retrospecced.

I love my new glasses that are actually very old! I was in such a pickle when my usual pair of glasses bent out of shape (got kicked in the face helping a kid with a handstand!) and I didn’t have a second pair but I didn’t want to buy a brand new pair... lucky I found retro specced on Instagram! I tried on the frames at home and they’ve been incredibly helpful. I love that I’ve got a pair of glasses with some history and that they also support vision aid overseas.

A great selection of some of the most fabulous frames. After trawling around four opticians, and failing to find one pair of glasses I liked, a friend found this site. So much choice! I ordered two pairs of frames and couldn't be happier with them.
