I bought a pair from Zenni a couple of years ago, when the thread was still in the 15+ pages. I got them as a back up, but they ended up being the default, so I was really happy about them and got compliments about them all the time.

The prescription part is the easy part, the hard part is the PD distance, but if you have a recent prescription lenses made, they usually write down the PD, so you can just use that.

I just got mine to try them out, and was pretty happy with Zenni. I also tried getting RX sunglasses from Goggles4u, and they made me dizzy so I never wore them, plus the grinding wasn't the nicest, lots of white marks around the lens, so I guess they don't polish properly. Give it try, the worst is you wasted $30, or you can get a decent pair of glasses for $30

This online retailer could be good to deal with:

Zenni Optical - Complete prescription eyeglasses from $8.00

Not 100% sure (yet) how to be sure they get the correct information to place the order. I'm sure I can eventually figure it out. I don't care too much for ordering frames without wearing them first.

I prefer to buy frames locally from a retailer, but the above prices blow away any local retailer that I know of.

Any retailers in the Lower mainland area with really good prices?
SuperEyeSpex.ca optical is the best with lowest cost of prescription glasses in Canada. What differentiate them from other online optical store is you can try the glasses on by going to their office based in Mississauga. :::: SuperEyeSpex.com ::::

I ordered my glasses from them and they were great. They saved me over $400 on my Chanel prescription glasses. Check them out

One of the most sincere spam moments I have ever read.

Now, go play in the traffic, would you?

This is not a spam. They are fairly new company and you cant judge the product of a company by the amount of traffic on their site. Go play with the traffic of their .com website. :::: SuperEyeSpex.com :::: . They were previously using the .com domain. They extended to .ca last month to enable all Canadians to know all prices are in Canadian dollar.

Dont be ignorant buddy

Plastic lenses are the more pricey kind. Glass lenses are heavier, thus cheaper. I bought some frames from ebay on the cheap, and filled them at a local laboratory for $30 a pair. The prices on frames at the optical chains is unbelievable, just gouging. You pay hundreds for the designer name, and they're all made in China.

You correct, i totally aggree. My chanel 2118HB model cost $550 in one of the optical stores, i contacted supereyespex.ca and they got it for me at $270. Even cheaper than the ones i found on ebay and on the net.

The store prices are ridiculous and i will never buy from the store again.
