Best Value for Money Fashionable Eyeglasses

I am in the market for a new pair(s) of eyeglasses. Ideally I'd like to pick up two pairs so I can rotate them with my current pair. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to where I might look…I've done some preliminary searching, but there's just a ton of choice out there. Maybe someone on the forums can help me narrow the options down?

I'm fairly young (30s) so something fashionable would be paramount. I know that there are some "trendy" places like Oscar Wylee, et al, but I'm not sure about the quality. Additionally, I'm prepared to spend a decent amount however this is Ozbargain after all, so if there are any deals out there I'd definitely pounce on them.

I have a fairly strong prescription, unfortunately this means that some of the smaller frames (eg wire frames) are a no go, due to the fact that my lenses are pretty thick. I currently wear Burberry frames similar to these:

However I am open to all styles. Finally, I'd like to try them on physically before buying them, but if it's a good enough deal I can live with buying them online.

Thanks in advance!

    Clearly is great. Got 3 pairs from them last year and they're really cheap if you use their discount codes. Quality varies - as Clearly has their in house brands as well as designer brands.


      Thanks, I'll check them out.


      Hi, what Clearly discount codes do you mean? this or something else?

        yep those ones. They change throughout the year. I got one that was 50% off glasses and lens this one time.

    if you have private health, just go to Specsavers and get them. Got 2 pairs last year for $0 out of pocket (one was sunglasses, other was normal - both were Hugo Boss brand)


      I do have PHI, cheers.

    Clearly or Zenni are what I use for most of mine.

    Clearly can claim PHI if you have it.
