Spectacles Direct was founded in 2004 By David Syme. After 30 years of experience in the optical industry David felt that a fresh approach was needed to ensure glasses could be purchased that didn’t just look great but were also great value for money. Spectacles Direct became the first and original outlet of its kind in Scotland.
We believe in giving an exceptional customer experience. At Spectacles Direct, “the customer is king”. We have built an excellent reputation for our customer care and service. It is this dedication that ensures our customers keep coming back.
From the moment you come into our showroom our fully trained eyewear consultants will walk you through our prices and advise on the best frame styles based on your face shape and prescription. After talking to you about your requirements we ensure the final product is tailored for you.
All of our eyewear consultants are trained to take extremely accurate measurements for your varifocal lenses. When you visit us we will discuss the options for your new lenses so your bespoke eyewear is perfect both aesthetically and optically.
We know how important it is for you to feel confident in your new glasses and we make sure you pick the best spectacles for you.
We offer free parking at our showroom. You don’t have to worry about unnecessary parking charges and focus on what matters, your new glasses.
We stock top brands in designer eyewear such as Givenchy, Ray-Ban, Prada, Police and Oakley. It is our belief you should be able to buy top brands at a more competitive price compared to the high street. This means there is no compromise – you get the look you want at a more affordable price.
Our Edinburgh showroom has over 3000 glasses and sunglasses on display giving you the best choice possible.
We also specialise in rimless frames and have over 200 different styles to choose from, probably one of the biggest collections in Edinburgh!
We are an Essilor Varilux Consultant Optician. We use the best quality lenses when making your prescription lenses. Other branded lenses available include; Zeiss, Nikon, Kodak and Hoya. By using lenses by leading manufacturer, this ensures you benefit from noticeably improved vision and reduced eye strain.
At Spectacles Direct we have our own lab. This means that our glasses don’t go off site to ensure the most efficient service possible. We have invested heavily in the most up to date Essilor glazing equipment meaning all optics get cut with 100% accuracy.
