Repairs

Don’t throw your broken glasses away just yet.

We can repair and restore your broken glasses and sunglasses, in 99% of cases, even when a high street optician has said you need a new pair.

We can repair almost anything. Full rim, semi-rimless and rimless (including Silhouette replacement parts).
Hinges, screws, pads, snapped frames, solders and welds.
Choose a repair package or pick from our list of repair options.

New frames

We offer quality, affordable glasses and sunglasses. We also offer designer frames such as Ray-Ban, Oakley and Silhouette titanium rimless eyewear.

Frame and lens packages from just £18.

Rimless frames with thin & lightweight 1.6 high index lenses start at just £79.

Reglazing

You can even choose to have new lenses in an old frame.

We can replace your old single vision, bifocal and varifocal lenses for new.

We do not even need you to provide your pupil distance measurement because we can take it from your own lenses.

All we need is your latest prescription.

    Come and see us

    If you normally buy your glasses from an optician in Kent, we can save you money on your next pair of glasses.

    We are based just outside East Peckham within easy reach of Wateringbury, Paddock Wood, West Malling, Maidstone, Kings Hill, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Rochester and Chatham. There is also FREE parking right outside the door.

    We will even refund the cost of an eye test you have had at another optician when you spend over £200 with us. T&Cs apply.

    We do not provide eye tests, we only provide frames, lenses and glasses repairs, so you will need to bring a current prescription with you.

    We have hundreds of frames to choose from, so you can get internet prices, but still be able to try the frames for size and to see if they suit you.

    This service is strictly by appointment only. The best way to arrange this is to click the button below, send us a message and we can either call or email to arrange a time to suit you. Or you can call 01622 534555 and leave your name and number for us to call you back.

    • After an unusual repair request to a pair of rimless silhouette specs which opticians on the high street declined or quoted silly prices to repair..with NO guarantee or time scale..Simplespex accepted the repair, had them back with me on the 3rd day and went above and beyond to do the job right. Total cost with shipping.....£18.99! I cannot recommend them highly enough and will not hesitate to use them again. And they wonder why the High St is dying? Thank you George..top marks!

      Had a pair of glasses repaired (hinge replaced) and the service was great. I got in contact to ensure they could be repaired before and in only 1 week (with postage there and back, second class) the frames were repaired and back with me. Recommend these guys!

      This is a brilliant service which saved my relatively new and expensive glasses from the bin. The snapped hinge was fixed really nicely and back with me within a week. Very straightforward to sort out. Very happy.

    • I had a problem with the hinge mechanism on my glasses so phoned George who recommended that I send photos. He called back to discuss the issue and felt is was fixable so I sent the glasses. The repair was excellent, the glasses were returned quickly and all for a total of £25 well spent, including return postage. Thanks so much George and your team. You deserve every success for your top quality service at very reasonable cost. Specsavers had declared my glasses u/s so I had almost given up but they are now more or less back to new.

      Very impressed by the whole experience with Simplespex. George was incredibly helpful and very keen to go that extra mile to ensure the right solution. After having been seriously underwhelmed in the past by most if not all High Street Opticians, this was a really refreshing experience.

      Excellent service. Rapid (48hr ) turn around as promised. Repaired arm of Silhouette spectacles a perfect match. Thank you!

    • Excellent service. Received my newly glazed glasses last week and have already sent off a second pair. So much better to be able to re-use perfectly good frames rather than get a totally new pair. Would recommend this company to anyone.

      Super impressed by this company - very professional, highly communicative, and they have completed excellent work, even with very particular requests due to chemical sensitivities & allergies. Would thoroughly recommend!! They have perfectly and very reasonably fixed as new a pair of glasses for me that Vision Express had told me was entirely unsalvageable (they had suffered a break on the nose pad arm).

      What a breath of fresh air !! , fantastic service, George is a very helpful man. Boots told me that my glasses could not be repaired but offered me new ones at £300.00 , I then spoke to George at Simplespex and he said it was no problem at all to repair them (£25.00) , I dropped them off to him and he repaired them and returned them to me within 36 hours. Service like it used to be in the old days, Thanks George

    How to send your glasses to us

    1. Identify

    Please include a copy of your order with your glasses.

    If you do not have a printer, please include a note with your name, address, email address and telephone number.

    2. Package

    Securely pack your frame, preferably in a hard case.

    A small box (45cm x 35cm x 16cm / 1KG) will cost the same to post as a jiffy packet, so it is best to use a box if you have one.

    3. Dispatch

    Take your parcel to the Post Office.

    You will be required to purchase postage at the Post Office.
    We recommend sending your glasses via a Sign For or Special Delivery service.

    4. Relax

    Sit back and wait for your new, repaired or reglazed glasses to be delivered.
