About Us

Costspex Opticians Durham is situated on the Dragonville Industrial Park near Tesco Extra and Screwfix Durham.

We are a family run business which opened in January 2004.

As we manufacture our glasses on site, our prices start from as little as £25 for a complete pair of spring loaded glasses with single vision hard coated lenses.  We also offer designer glasses with lots of brands to choose from.

Current offers include the ever popular 'Buy One Get One Free' ranges and 'Second Pair Discount’ ranges for those who like to have a spare pair of glasses just in case! Or just a different look.

That means two pairs of single vision spectacles start at just £45!!

Two pairs of bi-focal spectacles from £85

Two pairs or Varifocal spectacles from only £115

We tint any complete pair of glasses purchased for free to make them into prescription sunglasses ideal for winter morning/summer sun. 

We supply all types of lenses from standard single vision upto the latest freeform varifocal technology. 

So if your eye test is due give us a call to arrange an appointment today.  Or alternatively bring a copy of your current prescription to take advantage of our prices.

We carry out NHS eye tests for those who qualify, and we also accept NHS vouchers.

We have over 900 frames on display with 10 price ranges, so we are confident of having something to suit all tastes and budgets.
