39dollarglasses

When I got my new optometrist prescription last trip to Odessa, I contemplated ordering some reading glasses as well - getting bifocals would have added another $95 to the price of my glasses and a second pair of just reading glasses would have been almost as much.  Decided to wait and see what I could find online once I got home.  All I had to do was enter my prescription numbers and 3 days later the glasses arrived in my mailbox.  83,94,72,0,B

I have a friend who just a couple weeks ago recommended this same online glasses store. Let us know if you like them when they arrive!

OpticsPlanet is pretty good also.Redneck one stop shopping...you could have had a pair with night vision and laser range finder for a couple bucks more. Had a pair of ray bans RX'd there with glass lenses.Saltwater spray or dry dusty conditions trash those plastic lenses in no time..

I've had good luck with zenni optical. I do not have a complex RX (just for distance) so I'm not worried about it. There is some art to accurately measuring the width and temple length so that the frames fit you properly. I have a big ol' head and many of their frames are smaller. I ordered a few pairs of glasses from them over the last couple of years and 1 pair of sunglasses for driving.

Local company or bigger national company for the glasses?

At 79 years of age - I finally had to have my eye cataracts operated on. This excellent surgery corrected my rather poor distance vision - which had been present for about 65 years (but corrected with glasses)- to nearly 20/20. To me, this cataract surgery is somewhat like very small corrective lens - being permanently installed in your eyeballs - in the location where the cataracts formerly were located. Afterward , all I really needed was mild corrective lens for reading & writing. I tried using reading type glasses for a while - but found it cumbersome to always be putting them on, and taking them off. Invested in a pair of high quality bifocals (regular lens & sunglasses for driving), & I am now very satisfied!
