Vision Express: The Stylish Way of Seeing Clearly**

I'm sure most of you are aware of Vision Express but if you're not, it's an opticians. I've never been to Vision Express before - I'm a Specsavers kind of gal. I was invited down to my local Vision Express to experience their way of things and let me tell you, I really did enjoy it. When my experience was complete, I was allowed to purchase a pair of glasses, courtesy of Vision Express, to give myself a nice end to a lovely service.

I headed down to my local Vision Express which is in Highcross, Leicester, for an eye test. I already wear glasses so I was intrigued to see how they were going to find out my current prescription. Wizards do live among us. I witness some type of sorcery when I first arrived. I was kindly seated and offered a drink whilst I waited, a few moments later I was called up for somebody to take a quick look at my eyes before my actual test. The service was super fast and the staff were lovely. When we had finished up this section, the woman asked for my current glasses, put them on this machine and was magically informed of my prescription. Magic right there people.

After waiting for about 5 or 10 minutes for my actual appointment, I was called in and had a chat with the optician about my current health and family history. Since I have a few health issues running in my family, she advised that I went for an additional check at the end. Unlike Specsavers, Vision Express still have some of the older equipment which I love. I've not worn those heavy glasses for years and they're super fun! The actual test was super easy and the woman the served me was really nice and understanding.

When I came out, I went for my additional check and everything came back clear which is always a relief. I was then appointed somebody to help me choose my glasses. Yes, I actually had somebody help me, how cool is that. I was really thankful since my mum wasn't there to give me her opinion like she usually is, so I felt a bit better getting an opinion off of someone else.

After going from about 8 pairs of glasses to 2 pairs, I had a tough choice. Go for Ralph Lauren or Clavin Klein Jeans. It was a really difficult decision but in the end I went for the Calvin Klein's because they were pink and that's my favourite colour, plus they were a bit cheaper.

I was allowed a student discount of 20% which took quite a bit off of the initial price, I didn't know that they did student discount so I was well happy! Along with the glasses, I bough a breakage protection for £19 which means that if my glasses are broken, I can go back and get them fixed free of charge.

These glasses are so pretty! The front of the frame is a deep pink and the back of them are two shades of a dark pink and a lighter pink. Can you tell that I'm obsessed with pink yet? The quality of thee glasses are insane and when I went to pick them up, I had them fitted. If they don't feel right at any point, I can head back to the store and they'll adjust them for me! How nice!

I had a lovely experience with Vision Express and I would totally recommend that you go and try them out and treat yourself to the amazing glasses they have to offer!

Until next time...

  1. I know it sounds weird, but I've always wanted to wear glasses! I just think that their's something so hot about a girl sliding on some glasses to read a news paper: I'm in to the intellectual vibes! xox

    1. Haha, they are nice to have but they can be a right pain sometimes! I wish I wore them for that reson, unfortunately I can ready without glasses :(

  2. I love it when you find a good pair of glasses. I can be so difficult, I know! I've spent many an hour trying them on in the shop, looking for the perfect frames. The ones you choose were fab!
