  • Our Home Trial makes buying glasses easier, by allowing you to try up to four pairs and keep them at home for 7 days, for FREE. In this time you’re able to wear them out and about, show them to family and friends, and just get to experience what your potential new frames feel like. This reduces the chances of you having to return or exchange your glasses. Once you’ve decided on the perfect frames, order them on the website. If you don't have your prescription to hand don't worry, you can send it to us later.

What our customers have to say about our home trial service

Trust Pilot 5 stars

The process is really easy. I chose some frames and requested a home trial. 4 pairs of different styles with clear lenses arrived really quickly, allowing me to see what suited and what didn't, and also how comfortable they felt. I made my choices and returned them using a very easy prepaid system.
