I'll see how they are and maybe next time I'll get my primary glasses from them too.
I got my prescription sunglasses from 39dollarglasses today. It took 13 days after I ordered them before they were delivered.

They were well worth the wait, though! The frames are surprisingly attractive, fit me perfectly, and they were "good to go"... I didn't even have to adjust or tweak them at all. The lenses are tinted just the right amount, and the prescription is perfect. I am very impressed and happy with them. I will order from them again.

I want to thank all the contributors to this thread. I had never thought of ordering glasses online before. I ordered 2 pair of glasses, one a pair of progressive office glasses and the other distance glasses in sports frames, and they both worked out great! I paid less than $100 for the two combined, including antiglare-antismudge coatings. I paid over $600 for my last office progressives in the local shop, with almost $300 coming out of my pocket. I like the Zenni glasses better!

Thanks again!

Hadn't noticed this thread before, but last week my SIL who is an optometrist mentioned zenni to my DW. DW was looking for a cheap reading pair. I decided I could use a backup pair myself. Both pairs came to $63 with shipping. I am curious to see if the edges of the lenses will be polished on my half rims. It didn't give that as an option. I'll try to remember to report back on the results.
