@SouthernBee I actually really didn't wear them much. I always sat up front to see the blackboard, I would hold my glasses up to my eyes without putting them on!

Re: Shopping for new glasses

My dh and I just got new glasses. I don't look for cheap, if I like what I try on in the store, I get them. If we pay upfront the total, we get a 20% discount and if we want a second pair, those are half off of everything. I got two pair and my dh got a pair of glasses and a new pair of sunglasses.

We like Costco’s optical department. High quality frames and accurate lenses. They will adjust, repair, etc. at no charge.

Re: Shopping for new glasses

The price of frames -- especially designer ones --- is just terrible!  I also order on line --- I am a Zenni girl!  Yes, as you pointed out -- there are many places you can purchase on line if you can't or don't want to spend a ton of money on your glasses!  So glad we have these options!  The last time I picked out a pair of frames at my doctor's office -- I almost fell of my chair -- and I said --- nope!  I have been ordering from Zenni for probably 6 years now.  So glad you found what you wanted and for much less!!!
