It’s pretty funny that I’m so passionate about eyeglasses considering that I don’t wear them. I am constantly hearing from people who say that they spend $300 and up on a single pair of eyeglasses and it makes my heart stop for a moment. In comes Zenni Optical to turn this market upside down. They offer prescription frames and lenses starting at $6.95 with unlimited pairs shipped for $4.95. You simply choose your style, enter your prescription online, and get your glasses in the mail.
What about customer service. For $7 you can’t really expect amazing customer service. I haven’t heard any stories of people getting the wrong prescription or anything, but if you did have a problem, I wouldn’t count on customer service doing anything about it.
The big question is, “how are the glasses?” People absolutely love their Zenni’s. They’re so cheap many people get one pair to go with each outfit! The quality of the glasses themselves? The ones I’ve looked at seemed very high quality. My friend was wearing a pair while we were at Sam’s Club and I got their optomotrist to look at them. He didn’t know where they came from and said the quality was great.
My advice to people who are interested in trying these glasses is to get one pair (or get a few friends together and share the shipping) and see how you like them. If you do…you’ve just found a new way to buy glasses. Check out Zenni Optical here.
