UPDATE: I called Zenni today to see how much longer I’ll have to wait for the glasses. They said the photochromic lenses I ordered with one of the pairs require a little more time. I will be looking at nearly three weeks waiting for the glasses. Still, very much worth the savings if the glasses work out. I’ll post again when I get them.
Even though I don’t have a complicated prescription, I usually go to Lenscrafters and get hit with about $500 or so for a pair of glasses and a pair of sunglasses.
This time around, I started getting headaches and sensed I needed an eye exam.
I vowed not to do the Lenscrafters thing again.
The optometrist gave me my prescription and measured my pupillary distance so I could order glasses online.
I went with zennioptical.com. With their easy to use website, I ordered a pair of bendable memory titanium frames with anti-scratch and anti-glare coatings. I also picked up a pair of black plastic frames with anti-glare, anti-scratch, and photochromic lenses (they darken in the sun).
Total price with shipping? Under $100.
Is it too good to be true? I await the package in the mail.
