Fun, fashionable frames for Minuscule Prices

- Superdrug launches Online Opticians service offering 999 styles -

Leading health and beauty retailer Superdrug has launched its new online opticians service, offering over 900 fabulous styles of prescription glasses and sunglasses for both men and women. 

The new service offers a stunning selection of fashionable and traditional frames available from as little as £9, so you can afford to rock a different look whatever your outfit. With so many styles available you’ll be spoilt for choice, and if you’re in a hurry, custom-made prescriptions take as little as seven days for delivery direct to your door, or you can collect at over 800 high street Superdrug stores. 

For ease, quality and value, all lenses are scratch-resistant and manufactured specifically to your optical prescription for a fraction of the cost of other high street opticians. Lenses, coatings, a case and a cloth are all included in the price, and what’s more, if you spend over £25 you get free delivery.

If you have an optical prescription that is less than two years old you can order glasses online, without having to buy glasses from the retailer that completed your eye test. It’s really easy to order your glasses from Superdrug’s Online Optician service; all you need is your current prescription from your latest eye examination and you can begin finding your favourite frames.   If you haven’t got a copy of your prescription, you can simply request a copy from the opticians that completed your last eye check.

A full range of lens upgrades including varifocals, bifocals and tints are available as well as a range of accessories including cloths, on trend lanyards, classic cases and cleaning solutions. As well as its vast range of glasses, the Superdrug Online Opticians also offers a wide range of sunglasses, which are suitable for prescription lenses and offer full UV protection, so you can stay safe in the sun.

Styling Tips


Casual/ Weekend outfit: 
When choosing the right frames for weekend wear, I recommend going for frames that are fairly neutral so that you can easily match your glasses to a variety of outfit choices. I think these soft rounded frames are perfect for square or rectangular shaped faces. The pale grey shade will also complement those features you want highlighting too!

Date outfit: 
I always like to go for a strong and confident look, especially on a first date. The slight cats eye shape to these glasses will add a feminine touch to your look and shows personality. These frames suit pretty much all face shapes. 

Office/meeting outfit: 
These frames are great at providing a statement look for the office or that all-important meeting. They are professional, powerful and will encourage you to ooze confidence while you’re wearing them. These are best suited to round or oval shaped faces and the black frames will suit every skin tone.

Party outfit:
When creating the perfect party look, why not show off your fun side by adding a pop of colour to your outfit and pair these frames with that trusty LBD. The rounded shape of these frames work best with square or rectangular faces, as they will soften the jawline and highlight your eyes. 

Christmas party outfit: 
Create the perfect Christmas party look by pairing these glasses with a red lip and your favourite party dress. I love the subtle matt red colouring on these specs – the perfect accessories to rock this festive season.  


As an alternative to wearing false eyelashes, blend a kohl liner into the lash line and add lots of mascara to give your eyes more definition. 

If you're wearing a square shaped frame, lightly shade the cheekbones and add a small amount of blush to the apples of the cheeks to soften the finished look.

Be bold with lip colours, team your glasses with a bright lip to make a statement. The bolder the better! 

If you're wearing smaller glasses, defining your eyebrows can really help frame your face. Use a light colour to gently distribute the shadow through the brows.

Use a nude coloured kohl liner in the waterline, teamed with a flick will really draw attention to the eyes!
