Over the holidays I've been getting lots of complements on my new glasses. I decided to try out some thicker, bolder frames and got a pretty good response to them! For those of you that wear glasses, you know how expensive glasses can be. So trying a new style used to be a risky investment... until I started buying my glasses online from Zenni Optical.
Zenni Optical offers complete frames and lenses starting at a total cost of $6. Simply plug in your prescription and upload a picture to virtually try on glasses. You can then add upgrades, like thinner lenses, anti reflection coating, or tinting for sunglasses. My last pair cost me only $20 including shipping!
With prices easily an order of magnitude lower than what you'd pay at any optometrist, it's easy to justify ordering a few pairs of glasses that you can switch up depending on your mood or outfit. I've ordered a couple pairs of sunglasses from Zenni and have been satisfied with those too!
A few notes: don't get too excited about your glasses, mine have always taken about 2 weeks to get delivered. Also, sometimes it's hard on the website to exactly predict how they'll fit or what they'll look like. That's just part of the gamble i guess.
