Get cheap glasses online

December 8, 2007 by Lulu in Daily Links, Finances with 5 Comments


A few months ago I bought my glasses online in order to try to save some money. The glasses that I wanted were going to cost me around $400-$500 to get them from a brick and mortar store.

I ended up getting them online for a grand total of $75 from Hong Kong. I was afraid that the glasses would be messed up or would not fit me properly…but to my surprise they were perfect.

I verified them by going to a physical store to get them adjusted and found that they were just right.

While there are a few people who are still afraid of getting their prescriptions filled online (and from a foreign country) there are comments posted by readers (including me) who have done just that.

Once you send in all the correct measurements and the prescription you can get your glasses for MUCH cheaper than buying at your local eye place. Go ahead and check out the post and be sure to read the comments as they are very interesting. They even gave me some new sites to check out so that I can get my next pair of glasses online.

    I always go to Sam’s Club or Costco for my perscription (about $50) then buy my glasses at ZenniOptical. Last time I splurged and bought from the $12 category.

    There are many different choices to consider when trying to decide what specs you should choose. The main factors to be taken into consideration are price, quality and service. I believe that it is really safe to buy glasses online if you know where to get them from. You can check our site guys to see that quality, affordability and chic and be rolled into one. =)
