I know little while ago we were talking about a site with super cute glasses at great deals, well that was before Gage needed glasses and Ana's script is too strong.... Anyways now that gage is needing a new pair of glasses I'd like to get a better deal, so I'm wondering if I order them online how will I get the fit adjusted? He's got a weird shaped head lol.
Anyone run in to a fit issue?
any advice?

I ordered from Zenni Optical. http://www.zennioptical.com

I had really good luck with them. Great prices. I ordered two pairs for less then $40 shipped!! I love both pairs of glasses. It was fast and easy.

Both of my glasses fit me fine. I know Costco has replaced screws and eye pieces in my glasses for no charge, and I didn't even purchase my glasses from them. So maybe Costco or Sam's Club would adjust them at no charge if you have a membership with them?

Also, you can upload a photo of yourself to their site to try the glasses in the shop on your face! :)

Danielle and i just got ours from America's Best. Not online, but great prices. Two pair for $70. Might be worth looking to see if there is one in your area. Brian has a strong prescription, but he can still get two pair there for cheaper than a regular eye doctor's place.

thanks girls... we don't have a sams or castco near by, but I wonder if I could go to the eye dr or even walmart and have them adjust his fit, even if I have to pay a little bit, that would be fine, especially if the glasses cost me less then $100

I would think they would do it too...

I got the number from my eye doctor. I bet you could go into anyone to have it measured. It takes like 5 seconds, but it's a very precise and important number to have!

We do all of Rachel's from Zenni. Her last ones were 3 pair for less than $50. Yes and eye glass place or doctor can measure the PD. I can't use Zenni because of the prisms in my lens. and at over $300 a pair, I can't afford more than 1 pair. :(

I am interested to follow this- as I have a difficult prescription to fit.

Hmm, I'm curious about this too. I want prescription sunglasses again, but my prescription is bananas expensive. My glasses right now cost me $300 and that was with a really good vision insurance plan that covered the first $500. Yowza.

From what I can tell, you can only get non-prescription sunglasses through Zenni

Christina - check to see if you have an America's Best in your area.

Brian is going to go with them to get his updated glasses and sunglasses because the prices are better than what he can get elsewhere. Would be worth looking into.

We got my daughters from GlassesUSA.com Extremely cheap and very reliable... she loves them:) They also sent a card for 15% off the next set.

We have VSP insurance, so I end up only paying $10 for my kids glasses with the scratch proof on them.
I have used Coastal.com and they are awesome. They have a promotion for first pair free. I ended up doing that while waiting for mine to come in one year because my optometrist messed up my prescription. I ended up only paying $13 for shipping. You just have to like their page on FB and it gives you a code https://www.facebook.com/coastal.com/app_448589555162496
