My dear wife had the unfortunate accident of losing her prescription sunglasses while paddle boarding today!

My simple question are these easy to source quickly on the island so we can get her a replacement?

Thanks in advance! :prayer: :hlp: :supz:

There are plenty of opticians in Mahon who can provide prescription sunglasses for you.

I don't know if it's just me, but I've shopped around and have found glasses to be extremely expensive here in Menorca, so much so that I get an eye test locally and have someone in the UK order me a pair from glasses direct (they don't post varifocals outside the UK) and them post them on to me here - turn-around time is around three weeks but the savings are considerable. If you need to buy a pair here be prepared for a shock.

I had my eye's tested at the shop we mentioned, I got a pair of normal glasses and a lovely pair of prescription sun glasses for about 125 euro.

Thanks all. Simple temporary fix was a pair of clip ins from Decathlon for €9.99. Not pretty but does the job!
