    So I got my script from my eye doc today, and they also gave me my PD#s when I asked, no complaints... but they're broken down in L and R numbers. I'm assuming the PD# on the Zenni site is the combined L and R numbers?

    Yes. It will explain it all to you. There are little explaining tabs if you need help.

    I am having fun trying on various glasses on the zenni website. For as many years as I've worn glasses you would think I would have known what shape best fit my face, but apparently when you can try on glasses on your uploaded face photo you can learn a bunch about what looks good and what doesn't.

    I need to get an updated prescription and buy a couple of glasses. I've never gotten fun ones before but at these prices I could go with multiple frames without flinching at the price.

    I had been postponing going to a new optometrist/opthmalogist since the move (vets and farrier came first and that was stressful enough), but this is the nudge I needed to get checked and obtain a new prescription.

    When I get bored with my selection for me I'm going to upload DH's photo and start choosing for him.

    I might have done mine wrong but.... I had a PD number listed for both eyes but it was the same number. There was an option for dual PD values so I selected that and it allowed me to enter the two values. I dont know if I used that function right but my glasses turned out ok by doing it that way....

    Default What about Warby Parker?

    I just ordered 5 pair of glasses from WP for at-home try on. What are the benefits of using Zenni over Warby Parker? Are they pretty much the same in the way of ordering, etc? This is my first ever attempt at ordering glasses via the web. I have pretty simple eyes (mild prescription), no special needs, so I figure I'd give it a try.

    I think transitions would drive me crazy! I also have to wear sunglasses most of the time when I'm outside. In my car, I just keep a set of clear for night driving and 2 tinted (one spare) in my car. Because the mail order glasses are so inexpensive, my prescription glasses are cheaper than the cheap sunglasses I used to buy. Funny thing, too, I think because I didn't pay much for them, they haven't managed to get lost or broken. If I had paid $100+ for a pair of glasses they would have been broken within a week or two.

    Default You can now measure your PD online

    Shops must be terrified of what is now possible online. Some of these websites have a nifty way to measure your PD online yourself with a picture.

    I have used visio-rx.com. Their PD meter works fine for single vision glasses. But since I'm using progressives, the measurement needs to be done more accurately than on line or with a ruler. These guys rent PD meters for 20 bucks.

    I now have great quality progressives with a nice titanium frame for less than $80. Beats the $450 I paid for my previous pair. And I cannot notice any difference in quality.

    I also hate the transitions. I paid a fortune for them and no one told me they don't work in the car!

    What I do to get a copy of the prescription is to say I travel a lot, and need one for emergencies. You have a legal right to get a copy of your prescription, but some places make an issue of it, so I lie. To get the PD, then ask the optical staff about the limitations your prescription put on your lens and frame selection, pick a couple out, and ask them to do a preliminary write up so you can decide which frame and price fit, so they should do a PD then, and you might be able to see it then. You then make up an appointment, or another excuse, and you leave and go home and order online, or shop at another store. If not, then use the online one.

    If anyone needs a PD ruler let me know. I have two sitting on my desk right now and would be happy to mail them. I have now amassed about 10 pairs of glasses from Zenni. Love them all, especially my bright red Christmas ones!

    When I went to check out there were several different add ons (thin, super thin, anti reflective coating, anti scratch coating, polycarbonate, anti glare, uv coating, etc.).

    Which ones (if any) do you all recommend?

    Thanks!

    This thread made my day!

    I just started wearing glasses consistently this year and I am so tired of wearing the same pair every day (and not having sunglasses!).

    Can anyone post sunglasses they've ordered from Zenni & loved? Their sunglasses are harder to search than glasses - already picked 2 pairs of glasses to try!

    I only add the antireflective glare coating for $4.95. I have had good experiences for over a year with just that I have really poor eyesight so my lenses can be pretty thick but I have had no issues with Zenni and too much eye glass. None are too heavy, etc.

    No catch. I paid over $700 from an optometrist for mine. I couldn't see well enough with the bifocals, to they were going to change to single vision lenses. I couldn't be without glasses, so from hearing about Zenni on the board, I ordered a quick pair from them. Figured they would tide me over until my 'real' glasses arrived. $100 and they were at my door within days.

    Got my $700 single vision glasses back from the optometrist, STILL couldn't use them, so I ended up returning them.

    Thank goodness for Zenni or I wouldn't have any glasses at all!

    I think you can add that as an option on any frame. I just picked a frame I thought I would like as sunglasses and added the darker lens as an option when I ordered.

    Since this thread has been resurrected (yay zombie thread!!) I'd like to plug the website I wound up ordering my glasses from as another option for you all: www.39dollarglasses.com I bought two pairs through them and I cannot say enough how nice both pairs are. Made in USA, fast shipping, seamless transaction, excellent quality. And they look great! Each pair comes in their own case with a cleansing cloth and an eyeglass screwdriver. You can also "try" them online by uploading a picture of yourself.

    Happy glasses shopping, all

    WooHoo!!!!!
    So glad I clicked on this thread.
    I only knew about Warby Parker - very cool site - but they do not do bifocals.
    Looks like my next glasses (make that plural "glasses") will be Zennis!
