    Which company did you use?

    How do you make sure that they are going to fit?

    Thanks, Tommy. That thread was during my unfortunate "time away."

    I'm interested in the quality of the glasses too. My last 2 pair cost me $400+. And one was just single vision, not bifocals.

    But I figured I need the backup pair for driving, in case my primary pair breaks.

    I'm probably going to try Costco. There seem to be some good reasons not to go online. I have eyecare insurance but my current eye doctor is so astoundingly expensive, I just thought I'd look for alternatives.

    I've heard horror stories about both places: lenses incorrectly swapped, not cut on center, unskilled opticians adjusting the frames, etc...

    i would worry more about that with online. it's easier to deal with a person if they're not right then having the hassle of returning them back in the mail. i've bought glasses from Costco twice and was very pleased both times.

    Yeah, I'm not going to be the 1st one to try the online glasses. I'm hoping Shamrock posts a review.

    I'm pretty careful with my glasses, but I have a tricky prescription, so I'm more concerned about the quality of the lenses and the accuracy of them.

    Got my last pair at www.glassesusa.com

    paid $68.. I used my prescription for the power/strength of the lens, and the little numbers on the inside of the frames of my last pair of glasses to get the measurements for the frame
