Should you buy your glasses on the high street or online? That’s what was being asked in today’s Rip-Off Britain when Jennie Bond, Angela Rippon and Gloria Hunniford are on the prowl to find out whether consumers are being “ripped off” when it comes to buying prescription glasses.

Our founder Jamie Murray Wells talks about why he started Glasses Direct and the importance of shopping around to find the right glasses at the right price to suit you, whether it’s online or on the high street. He emphasises how customers should never feel pressured to buy their glasses from the same place they had the eye test. Research suggests that customers still aren’t shopping around enough, mainly because they don’t realise that they can.
