I ordered two pairs of glasses from Zenni Optical on Nov 16, 2016 and they arrived November 26, 2016. I paid $17.46 with a coupon code. Unboxing Zenni Optical order: Zenni Optical Style #126221 and #126016
If you’re low on cash, need glasses for yourself or your children because insurance won’t cover it, then i recommend Zenni. I’ve been there before and the reason I found this website was because I found myself jobless at one point for a few months and was in dire need of glasses. This is my second time ordering from them because I had a good experience with the first.
- Zenni Pros: Zenni is cheap and they offer a variety of lenses for kids and adults, their lenses are cute, different, and also unconventional which can be a good or bad thing depending on your style. You will have 20/20 vision and cute glasses IF you input your prescription correctly.
- Zenni Cons: Measuring your Pupillary Distance can be tricky to do on your own, so get a friend to help you–you need access to a printer so you can measure your pupillary distance. Also, unless you’re trained in eyes, lenses, or frames, it can be hard for you to find a pair that fits, BUT seeing as how they’re so cheap, you might be able to screw up a few times. Moreover, you cannot physically try on the lenses which is a bummer, so hopefully they’re willing to open up brick-and-mortar places because I feel like they could be so successful in helping lower income families and individuals.
- Tips: If you have a high augmentation for near-sighted people (ex: anything larger than -3.0 , it’s negatives here, so i’m talking -4.0, -5.0, etc.), you’re gonna get stuck with coke bottle lenses unless you pay the extra $$ to have thinner lenses. Refer to the recommended Index sheet whenever you’re in the checkout portion of your order.
Also, I think you should skip the anti-glare coating because mine ended up just wearing off slowly and shitty-ly on my first order the first time I ordered.
