    Hey, I'm 16 and I lost my glasses ages ago. I sit at the back of most class rooms and end up copying notes off my friend due to my eyesight being weak. I've decided to get a new pair of glasses, but where from? There's so many opticians out there: Spec-savers, Vision Express etc etc. So who should I go to?

    I'm a male by the way, and need a good pair of glasses at a cheap rate, who did you go to? Also if someone could recommend me some frames that would be great.

    Thanks!

    How to avoid the UK glasses rip-off:

    * 1. Get an eye test at a high street optician
    * 2. Buy online, using your prescription
    * 3. Receive your glasses
    Do the opticians give you the prescription or do you have to ask for it? I'm thinking about getting a free pair from spec-savers and then buy the frames online using the prescription.

    They usually give you a copy, if they don't just ask them for one.
