I also have a horrible vision, so I always order the 1.61 high index lenses, otherwise my glasses would be coke bottle. I have purchased glasses from many different online stores, Zenni’s high index lenses are the most inexpensive ones. If your prescription is strong, Zenni Optical would be the best choice.
My prescription is 8.50 and 8.25. I usually wear contacts and don't care what the glasses or frames would look like (weight or thickness etc) since I seldom bother with glasses.
Tried the Coastal special with code and it was like $60 bucks out the door.
Zenni is looking good at around $32 bucks shipped (would like to see if there is a code around though).
I have my prescription and PD handy. Price wise, I am not too far off from being able to just get frames and lenses from my local eye doctor with my current prescription.
I'm also coke bottle lens wearer (8 & 7.50). I use Zenni and buy the cheap frames. I have about 10 pr. of glasses for the price Sears or Pearle or Penney's would charge for one pair. (Sunglasses, readers and distance).
Thanks guys...settled on Zenni. I didn't buy anything fancy this time around...I am going to let my cokes shine and if I like them I might get another thinner set...not that self conscious though where it bothers me that my lenses are thick....but thick lenses or tight frames make my face go numb.
Indeed, my eye doctor was quoting me $320 for just lenses with transitions and crizal anti-reflection. I got frames, lenses, sun darkening and super duper anti-reflection from greateyeglasses.com for $159! I got a spare pair from goggles4u for $51. Still well below what my eye doctor wanted.
