I shared on Facebook a few weeks ago that I had ordered new glasses from Zenni Optical. If you wear glasses, you really should check them out. I bought three pairs. The total cost with shipping was just under $34. I only paid $8 a pair for two of them. The sunglasses were about $13. Flat rate shipping of $4.95 no matter how many you order. They finally arrived today.
I did find the website a bit awkward. It took me a bit to figure out exactly how to order & what to order. I also prayed I read the doctor's handwriting correctly. ;-) I do plan to take them to Wal-Mart or another eye place to have them double check the prescription.
So here are what the look like (forgive the photos - I had B take them & I just wanted my eyes & the glasses to show....)
I bought these to wear every day. The frames are silver & the stems are black. (Yes, I know they are crooked. I think my ears are lopsided. I have this problem all the time. LOL)
My sunglasses. I love these. The frames are purple!!! I do wish I had bought slightly bigger lenses just to cover my eyes better but these definitely work. I tried them out today.
And these were just for fun. I'm not sure how I feel about them. They are acrylic frames. It's very much a different style than I would normally buy. I bought the blue to make my eyes stand out a bit more. We'll see.
Overall I have to say I'm happy with them. They came from Hong Kong so I'm assuming that's how they keep the costs down. I did a bunch of forum reading before I ordered these. I would have to say 90-95% of the folks who ordered through them were happy. I fall in to that category.
It's taken me a bit of time to get used to them today. They are a different style than my old ones & my prescription was tweaked a bit by my doctor. I know new glasses take some time. I've been wearing my silver framed ones a lot today & at this point I don't feel like the walls are tilting in at me. LOL
I found this to be a frugal way for me to get new glasses. I would definitely buy from them again.
