Last March (2019) it came to the point that both Himself and I had to get new glasses. The thought of having to shell out several hundred dollars was not pleasant.
Then I heard of a place online that was supposed to have really good prices. Doesn't hurt to look so I checked out Zenni Optical https://www.zennioptical.com/ . The prices were not good; they were amazing.
So I decided to try them out.
This photo was taken almost 9 months after we received them. We are both completely happy with the purchase. I had also ordered a second pair with plastic frames for 'computer distance'. They have stood up to being abused (and Himself can abuse poor ol' glasses). In fact, we ordered a second set to keep in the car for when we forget to switch glasses from computer to driving.
How much did they cost?
WITH lens and a hard case... Himself's cost $12.95. Then he had added a special coating because night driving bothers him. Grand total - $21.90.
Mine cost $6.95 plus a lesser coating for a total of $11.90!
My plastic frame computer glasses (above) cost $6.95 also.
Here's what you need to know...
Get a new prescription. And (very important to save you from irritation) have the eye doc to note on your 'script your pupillary distance (that is where your pupil lines up with the center of the glasses). There is a way to figure it on your own~ but you really don't want to do that...
Then get a passport style photo of yourself with your glasses off. They have a thing where you can upload your picture and 'try on' different glasses. Makes a huge difference!
From there pick your new glasses and fill out the form. They arrived in 2 to 3 weeks.
This would be so great for families with young children ... who are usually brutal to glasses. One could afford to buy several pairs!
