    I just got a pair for free, paid S&H only because it was my first pair... wondering how they are going to come out???

    I was very happy with my pair from zenni optical and ordered another $7 frame from there but wanted another for the car, ect ect...

    worth a try... the zenni has glasses that start at 7 bucks, worth it for a pair you are going to take to the beach and scratch the fuck out of with sand eventually with IMO

    I went to target to go get my contact script.... older woman buying glasses was told her frame was $12 but her order was 300.... she's like that is so much! I wanted to tell her so bad but felt like I'd get kicked out of the store lol... and needed the lady to take my PD measurement

    I spent $300 on my last pair of regular glasses. I think they said it would've cost $400 for a tint.

    yikes! I am using these for the most part when I am home at night watching TV, or too hung over to put my contacts in for work.... the quality is what you would expect for $7 but they work

    may take buying 3-4 pairs to find one you really like and are comfortable.. I liked out and really liked my first pair, but I already knew what kind of style I wanted/goes well with my face

    How did you get them adjusted to your face? I have to get my glasses readjusted constantly.

    What do you mean readjusted? I went years without ever readjusting the glasses I got from lens crafters but maybe I should have?

    I always have the nose pads adjusted and the arms adjusted behind my ears until they are just perfect. I don't want them falling off my nose.

    Just walk into Lens Crafters. They do it for free.
    No questions are asked.
    They don't know where you bought the glasses.
