In a previous issue of Time ["Eyes on the Price", July 4, 2011] it was discussed that a Time editor, Bill Saporito, paid $1,000 for a pair of eyeglasses.
I had to laugh out loud when read this! About three months ago my oldest son needed new glasses. We went to our family eye doctor to get his eyes examined and requested a written prescription for the exact lenses he needed. Then I started a search for the most affordable glasses I could find, but I did not want to skimp on quality. The glasses I would be purchasing will be for my preteen, who is starting to care about looks and fashion, but also a very active sometimes careless person.
In the hunt for fashionable, sturdy, budget friendly glasses, I researched a number of sources. One being the eye doctor's selection, the glasses ranged from expensive to more expensive. Then to Walmart, the glasses ranged from cheap to cheap looking. Zenni Optical was recommended to me by a fellow frugalite.
I decided to order from Zenni Optical, I found fashion I could afford. I honestly could not believe how affordable the entire order was. I paid under $12 for the pair of glasses including shipping. The glasses I ordered was #4297 in grey. When we received the glasses, they were in a case with a cleaning cloth. The glasses look very stylish and are holding up great to the every day tests that a 12 year old can put them through.
My family will continue to order through Zenni Opical for all of our optical needs.
