Welcome to Glasses Direct

We love contact lenses for their convenience, ease of use and versatility. However, to ensure that you maintain healthy vision we advise that you give your eyes a rest from contacts from time to time. That's why it's important to make sure you have a pair of spare glasses handy. Whether you want to give your eyes a bit more of oxygen, or you've been thinking about switching up your eyewear options, we've got the answer for you.
