Zenni Optical, The Come Up: Eye Wear

Adorable aren't they? Only 15 dollars.

Good eye wear. Expensive, hard to find, and way too labor intensive.

Problem solved, my peeps. Lord knows, like everything else, I've spent thousands on the perfect frames, and like everything else, I have way too many of them. However, too many is never quite enough. Enter the online prescription lens phenomenon. Apparently, the mark up on eyeglasses is so incredibly remarkably high, we are all being forcibly coitused every time we see our optometrists. Online eye wear providers only ask that you have your prescription and pupillary distance (PD) measurement, and they are willing to give you a full set of frames from $8.00. Yep, that's right, lenses, frame and all.

I ordered from Zenni Optical because I found their frame choices most attractive, but there are several other companies out there. Over at Glassy Eyes, you can find links to these providers, reviews of their service, and coupons. As for me, I'm sold. My glasses arrived roughly one week after I ordered them, and they're great. Yet another way for me to spend less and get more. Yay me.

Soon, I'll be sporting all of these:
