They very lovely people over at Direct Sight emailed me a little bit ago asking if I'd be interesting in a shiny new pair of glasses from them. Of course, being a dedicated glasses wearer (and one who is blind without them) I jumped at the chance! I picked the A162 frames priced at a reasonable £59 (compared to vision express a steal!) and they even threw in my lenses for free. You do get prescription lenses with the price but mine is so bottle-bottom strong they thinned them for me so I wouldn't look like a mole lady. I received them really promptly and they are residing on my face right now in place of my now heavily scratched superdry jobbies. A success all around, then, I think!
