    Does anyone know a good, cheap site to buy prescription glasses? I bought 2 pairs a few years ago for like $35 but I can't remember the website...

    any help would be appreciated :hat:

    I have used FramesDirect -- they have the expensive brands, but also ultra cheapos -- I've always been very satisfied

    I have gotten cheap glasses from www.firmoo.com
    At the time I got them, if you liked their facebook page the glasses were free and you only had to pay shipping. A co-worker of mine has also bought from them and is happy with her glasses.

    Good Morning America had a great promo with an online vendor, and it looks like it might still be in effect.

    ut be careful; their prices aren't that great. Try to stick to the free offer.

    Lenscrafter and its ilk are all just ripoffs. You can't walk out without spending over $200. The only decent place I've ever found is Factory Eyeglass Outlet, a small chain. 40 bucks and you're done.

    Costco is also okay.

    Yeah fuck lenscrafters, I will never buy from them again.

    I am deciding between these two...

    Don't you have to have a valid prescription to order off those places?

    Sure, but you just need to type in the numbers from your prescription. (There's no kind of legal control as is there is with prescription drugs, as far as I know.)

    This, plus the eye exam/getting the prescription is the cheap part, it's the glasses that cost a fortune...

    Yeah, they're the ones in the GMA link I gave above. I've never actually used them. As I said, their prices seemed pretty high to me.
