I\'m here, Big Guy glasses. Ready for action. Merlin is worth considering if you need a larger frame that\'s subtly smart and modern. They\'re hard-wearing, too, thanks to the flex arms.

Why aren't these available for Home Trial?

When you want a particular pair of glasses, and you just *have* to have them, then they need to definitely be in stock.

With this in mind, we've restricted our faster selling styles so that they can't go out on home trial when they're nearly sold out. This means they're definitely available for our customers who want to buy them.

If you're interested in one of these styles, it's worth moving quickly because it's likely that they'll be completely sold out fairly soon and replaced with another great value style.

It’s still totally risk free, our 14-day no quibble guarantee means you can still return them if you’re not 100% satisfied.

Sunglasses options

These sunglasses are available with standard non-prescription lenses as shown in the picture, or with your choice of prescription lenses.

The choice and cost of lenses will depend upon the frame style, as some frames require specialist glazing due, for example, to them being curved, which cost more than standard glazing.

For more standard frames you will have the same choice of lens thicknesses and tint colour options as our entire range of standard prescription glasses.
