Zenni Optical

First of all, something that has nothing to do with glasses – thank you for your comments regarding my rant. I really appreciated what each one of you said and it's nice to know I am not alone, some of you have had similar experiences. I was nervous to publish that post but it was nothing but a good experience for me and I’m glad to have that off my chest, no matter how small it is. Thanks.

Sooooo on to today’s post. Y’all know I love a great bargain right? Well when it came time to purchase some new glasses (my prescription changed and Rigby has all but destroyed my current pair – how many times can you twist an arm back into place before it breaks?) I knew I was going to purchase them nowhere but online at Zenni Optical. My sisters in law buy all their glasses (and their kid’s glasses) there and have been so happy with their products. I was excited to get started.

All you have to do is go to Zenni Optical  and create a profile, for FREE. You can upload a photo of yourself and “try on” as many pairs as you like. You create a list of favorites and slowly work your way through their thousands of pairs. I used the category boxes on the side to help narrow my search. You must have a current prescription (within 2 years) from your eye doctor and once you have made a final decision (it took me days  to get there!) you enter in your prescription, all the extra features you’d like (scratch resistance, anti reflection etc.). Then just watch it all add up. That’s sarcasm because once you visit you’ll see how inexpensive it all is. I bought these 2 pairs of glasses, each with scratch resistant and anti reflection lenses, for, *drumroll* $54, FIFTY FOUR DOLLARS and that includes shipping. I’m not lying to you. Neil was somewhat sketched out with the whole process and was fairly certain they would arrive and I’d be more blind with them than without them, BUT they were delivered this morning and I couldn’t be more pleased. Both pairs are true to their description, fit really well and I can see perfectly through them.

I am really quite thrilled with the entire experience. It was fun to browse their selection, pick my favorites and know that I was getting great glasses for a great price. You literally couldn’t purchase one lens for the price I paid for 2 pairs! Next time you're in the market for new glasses, I think you'd be a fool not to check out Zenni Optical. Just sayin'. :)

  2. Michelle these are adorable on you. I can't decide which pair I like better. Of course you would look cute in gogles so what difference would it make. You
    are beautiful in everything (and, for sure, I am NOT prejudiced).

  5. I'm so glad that I find your post before I buy glasses! I want a pair of sunglasses. And my DH also needs a pair of rimless glasses with thin lenses. They would cost a fortune in eyeglasses chain stores. Will check Zenni Optical out soon.
