Where do you purchase eyeglasses/frames

Just purchased frames and lenses at Lenscrafter which weren't cheap almost $300 per pair with insurance. Looking online I see Costco has high marks sure about their prices. Even though my coverage drops some outside the recommended providers I could reduce my costs. The online suppliers are tempting however I'm not comfortable doing so. Anyway curious to see what others do. Txs

Your choices are basically to pay outrageous brick and mortar prices or save a bundle online. Switched to online suppliers years ago, and have saved thousands of dollars. Goggles4u - Eyeglasses, Prescription Glasses, Progressive Eyeglasses, Bifocal Glasses is who I use most often.

Cliff , was this before any insurance discounts or just their regular pricing?

I happen to work for a rather large Ophtomological Surgery practice, so, obviously, I get them here.

Before I spent thousands, I'd find out if there wasn't a corrective surgery procedure that would fix the issue.

I bought a pair at Costco and the price was good, but not that good. My last pair I bought at Walmart and with exam I paid about $150 and that was for exam, lens (bifocal), frame. If I break them the replacement cost is not bad. I don't have insurance and so I went with them based on cost.

Zenni Optical. Can't Beat 'em. I've purchased for my whole family and have been satisfied.

Get your prescription exam at Costco or whoever has a special running then order online from Zenni.

I've always used LensCrafters, they're expensive but I've never had ANY problem with the quality of their work. The one issue I have with them is they always try to sell you (aggressively) an anti-glare coating for the lenses which is supposed to reduce glare at night. It's a complete waste of money: I noticed no difference and my glasses were constantly smudging and would not stay clean. Pass on that option, it's pure profit for them. I even had one salesperson tell me I had to get the coating, they couldn't take it out of the sales order. I stood up and said "well, guess I'll go elsewhere, then". He changed his tune real quick.

Interesting - I've used Costco the past several years but have also used Walmart & Kaiser Permanente. I did not find transitions on the site - those that change tint for inside to outside. Are they in there and I just did not see them?
