High-prescription eyeglasses online (personal experiences appreciated!)

I have higher-than-average myopia (close to -7). I notice most online eyeglasses makers tend to charge extra for my prescription, which is not a dealbreaker, but makes me wonder whether they are the best option for me. Do you have any personal experiences with online eyeglass orders for high prescriptions? Any input appreciated. Again, cost is not the only factor for me; I'd rather have a robust frame that lasts than a cheap one that doesn't. [more inside]

Find a frame

I need new glasses. Sadly, my choice of frames (RX5226 or RX5150, both Ray-Ban frames) are not available on the UK high street. Are there any trusted online retailers where I can get these frames, either with or without lenses? Or very similar? [more inside]

Glasses or Contacts

Spectacles only? I got a copy of my glasses prescription from my eye doctor, and it says "Spectacles only". I have an existing copy of my contact lens prescription, complete with measurements. If I keep the same numbers but substitute the new sphere measurements, can I order contacts with this prescription? [more inside]
