I would like to tell you guys about this website, if you have not heard of it already. Zenni Optical does prescription glasses for $7USD (some frames are more expensive, but they have a LOT of cheap, and really cute choices). That includes the frames, prescription lenses, a case, and a cleaning cloth. All for seven dollars. All you need is your prescription. For a few dollars extra, you can get prescription sunglasses. This is a great resource for people on cheap health insurance, or if you just tend to break your glasses a lot and need a few extra pairs.
I just got mine yesterday, and they’re very sturdy. Better than the last pair I got through insurance, actually. And when I inevitably break these ones, Zenni has my prescription saved so I can quickly order a new pair. I picked the cheap shipping option (four bucks), and they took about a week and a half to get here, but there’s a faster option for about $14 or so.
Glasses are one of those things a lot of cheap health insurance won’t cover, which makes this an invaluable resource for anyone on a budget. They even ship internationally.
I can vouch that this website is legit and awesome. My current pair of glasses only cost me $60, you get tons of options in terms of the types of lenses+accessories and add ons for basically a fraction of the price that they’d cost at any optical store. I can’t recommend this place enough for anyone that needs an updated pair of glasses
I have two pairs from there, both of which cost me less than $30. I would definitely get glasses from them again.
I have a pair from there which cost me about $60, I went for more expensive frames and transition lenses. Still cheaper than the $230 my other pair cost me, so I cannot complain! They’re really good imo.
This is where I got my last two pairs of glasses. Both pairs look exactly like the picture, and after a couple days of consideration before purchasing, I was super happy with both. Zenni today, tomorrow, and forever.
