Reglazed a frame for me.

published

The process was pretty straightforward I did have to make an extra measurement of pupil distance to bottom of frame and then submit with my recently acquired prescription. I paid for and posted to the supplied address. Soon enough I was notified my glasses were on their way and given tracking code.
So far so good. My progressive lenses feel very comfortable. They did a great job. I will use Framesbuy again for sure

Unfortunately glasses case broke after only two months use

published

Initially I was very pleased, the store site was easy to navigate and the buying experience went off without a hitch (although the glasses case did take a while to get to me). When I first received the product I was very pleased and loved the item, it was exactly as I had pictured it and seen in the online store. Unfortunately yesterday after only using the product for a couple of months the case has broken with the magnetic closing mechanism no longer keeping the case closed! I am going to purchase the same case in the alternative design which involves a flap and press stud closure system to see if this lasts longer.

Fine quality!

published

Much better option than shopping at the overpriced in-store glasses.
Just ensure you do see a good optometrist and they give you your prescription values as well as your pupillary distance (PD). For the price the products are good. I had a bit of a long wait for delivery but given COVID, its not so bad.

Lovely but way too big

published

Lovely glasses, perfect prescription but they are waaay to big for me and I was hoping for a bit more brightness in the colour similar to the sample.

Everything was good except...

published

My sun glasses were just as I hoped - they fit well, and the prescription appears to be just the same as the glasses I had made in Australia. But they were about a quarter of the price which made them even better. Ordering with a script was easy. One thing I wasn't aware of was that it would take over a month to get the glasses. I understand delays might relate to COVID19 but the website only says "Super Fast" and "Timely" delivery. Better to warn people upfront what to expect.

Great product, packaging problematic though

published

The hard and soft cases I purchased were beautiful and great quality and design. I did however have issue with the packaging being stuck fast requiring the use of scissors to open. In doing so, I cut through the soft case. Perhaps some hard cardboard packed around these in future would resolve this as I was very disappointed.

Quality reflects price.

published

Arrived after a good amount of Covid-19 time. The reason is; they came from India, not locally, interstate, as I seemed to believe from the website. Quality reflects price, so though the frames looked fine in site photos, I was slightly disappointed on arrival. Still, cheap price, cheap frames. What can I expect? And they have a large range, that is why I bought.

Great PU Leather glasses case

published

This case is a great protective but light weight case for my reading glasses - although the size is slightly tight and requires careful insertion. Over all very happy and would be super interested in a real leather option at some stage

Would be a 5 but for slow delivery

published

Very good selection & very happy with the product. Great quality & design - only disappointment was delivery time / it gave every appearance of being an NZ supplier with the case in stock yet took same time as items bought via drop shipping. Get this sorted & I’d give a 5 for sure!

I emailed my optometrists script to Framesbuy. My glasses were made, with photochromatic lenses as well and posted back very quickly. They are perfect. I have since had another pair made as spare.
Very happy. Highly recommended

Why does the reading section of my bi-focals not extend to the full width of the lense? Most annoying.
