Forum Archive

You're at the forum archive. The forums were taken down years ago due to some unfortunate astroturfing attempts by a couple retailers. At the time, I was very concerned about exposing readers to a bunch of input-that-might-be-fake, or creating a situation where the well-behaved retailers were at a disadvantage.

However, because a number of readers had posted helpful comments & reviews, and I didn't want to see it all vanish into oblivion permanently, I kept a backup around. What you're seeing now is that backup (almost 7 years old now - don't ask how I managed to get it running again...). Things are a bit scattered, and you can't post anything new (the buttons have all been disabled), but the original content is here if you're interested.

This site offers hi-index 1.61 as super thin lenses free, and more than 1000 frames, some of the frames really nice. the total price also very low, about 25 pounds you can already buy very nice glasses.

Its a shame that they don't appear to sell varifocals. Glasses are made in China and hence delivery takes a week or so. My glasses are well made and the prescription is correct.
