My SO uses Zenni and is very happy. She bought a pair of progressives with a few extra coatings, etc. and paid ~$50.

I am due for a new pair. Already had my eyes examined about a month ago for "free" (thanks to Medicaid) but am too darned cheap to pull the trigger on even a cheap pair from Zenni. Am making do with my 8 year-old pair, and they're actually working pretty well.

ER, for all intents and purposes. Part-time income <5% of annual expenditure.

I recently bought what is now my favorite pair of sunglasses from Zenni as well: very light weight, polarized, scratch guard, etc. for under $100.

Well, I thought I had lost these glasses for good a couple of weeks ago; so, I went online and reordered. (The Zenni web site was one reason I chose them; easiest to find and price among the sites that I examined.) Later that day, I did find the glasses; so, I IM'd Zenni customer service in the middle of the evening to see if I could cancel my order; they did, not issues.

Zenni will be my go to for ordering glasses.

Note: I got my PD with my prescription with no issues; I do travel extensively and explained that I wanted it just in case. All true.
If there's one thing in my life that's missing; It's the time I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters; There's lots of those friendly people
Showin me ways to go; And I never want to lose your inspiration

Another vote for COSTCO.

You can't beat the prices. Selection not bad. Quality great.

Recently purchased 2 pairs of scratch resistant, non-glare, UV treated, no-line trifocals from Costco. One was also tinted for use as sunglasses. Since I had nice frames in excellent condition that I liked I used them instead of buying new frames. The total cost was $270. That was less than half I have been paying for just one pair at the optometrist.

Eyeglasses Online - Buy Prescription Glasses & Eyeglass Frames | Zenni Optical I've happily used them several times.

You'll need your measurements and Rx to order. Hopefully your cataract surgeon's office can help.
