recent paper found that ~80% of all glasses purchased online were made incorrectly. I use them as a backup or replacement pair for my kid but our eye doctor, from whom I've bough the first pair, is willing to check to ensure I've actually received what I requested. It hasn't always been the case.
Purchasing prescription eyeglasses online is recommended if you only have a small budget because it's easier to find inexpensive ones over the internet. These online stores mentioned here are few great examples.
You want to save even more on eyeglasses from these stores? Look for coupon codes. They are usually on third party websites. Combine that with their free shipping offer and you get double savings..
Indeed a great post. You have mentioned good & useful information. One should always keep these points in mind. By the way I am looking for eye care specialist. So anyone can suggest me about it. One of my relative suggested me http://alleganyoptical.corporatenewssource.com and said they are very good. Anyone have any idea about them. Please let me know.

I've been using Zenni for years and love 'em/ The glasses may not last as long but for $20 a pair you might as well buy three and have different styles for the entire year.
I just called "Coastal.com" and inquired of their location ~ They ARE a "Canadian company based out of Vancouver" .
Now days you get discount at many places.
