If you have a prescription, just walk into a optometrist. Don't order anything online. A optometrist will properly measure your physical features and center your prescription accordingly. It's better to have that done in person than estimate over the Internet. However, it does cost more. But places like LensCrafters run deals and discount of you buy frames + lens from them.

Also, there is nothing wrong with a Costco optometrist. It's just a location. Most pharmacies are located in grocery stores as well. Doesn't make them less qualified, it's just a employer.

yeah, they are licensed optometrist either way.


I actually found the same exact glasses, just non name brand at costco for about $70. and my friend works in the optometry department so he is going to try and hook me up.

I've also found great deals online. I've never heard of hour eyes, I'll have to check it out. I usually go to siteforsoreeyes.com because they have a good selection and pretty good coupons. I wish I could get lasik, but isn't it very expensive?

I went to a club in hollywood friday and lost my prescription glasses. I initially had insurance when I got them, but it was pretty recently so insurance wont cover a new pair just yet.

What is the best place to buy prescription glasses? Online? Frames and lenses.

Pay the $2-3k out of pocket for LASIK. The cost is about the same over a 10-year period for exams, frames, lenses, contacts, etc.

Another +1 for Costco, best place for optics without vision insurance IMO. Costco's selection of frames can be pretty meek at times, but they will put lenses in almost any frame you bring in provided it can accept RX lenses. Costco's lenses are quality, have had several pairs and no complaints. Service is always good too.

do these places like Costco or lencrafters accept doctor's eye prescriptions from 6 months ago, or it has to be recent prescriptions?

Pretty sure you are good anytime within 1 year of the prescription.

+1. Just received a couple pairs recently. Great customer service and return policy. The try 5 pairs also helped ALOT.

I tried zenni optical but I made error on my prescription. By the time I contacted them to correct it, it was too late. They would not put a new set of lenses before shipping. I didn't want the glasses so they refunded the shipping cost...which was kinda bullsh1t. Live n learn. I suppose that's how they keep prices so low.
