First, thanks OP for your amazing timing. I was about to buy a pair of glasses from Zenni for my kiddo and this popped up. Repped!



The vast majority of complications from laser eye surgery come from the corneal flap the surgeon creates in the LASIK procedure. Most of the complications are related to the flap not healing up correctly or opening up again at some future point.

You can avoid all of those complications by getting PRK or another surface procedure that doesn't require a flap to be created. That's what I did and it worked our really well. The down side is that your eyes are sore for a few days. The up side is that you can never experience a flap complication for the rest of your life.

Most people choose LASIK because they can see perfectly and go back to work the next day, and they never even consider the other options. Do yourself a favor and consider all the options like PRK.
With PRK, don't I have to be out for weeks?
I can't afford to not be working for a whole month.

Like 1 in 1000 end up having some sort of complication. So if those odds are too much for someone then they might want to stay away.
like i said, to each his own. Ever wonder why many ophthalmologists wear glasses.

Anyone have experience with this company or EyeBuyDirect?
I have been ordering glasses for my husband and kids for 10 years. They are wonderful! They are super affordable and durable. I have had eye doctors examine the glasses at checkups and they have always been happy with them. My fil and several friends now use Zenni for their glasses. heart

There are dozens of reasons an eye doctor may not choose to have LASIK. Fear of the consequences of such surgery does not appear to be one of them, according to everything I've read. But like you said, to each his own. I'm even considering the touch-up surgery since my vision has declined since my procedure. It was really nice not wearing glasses all of those years, though. It was well worth the money and relatively small risk to me.

Costco ripped me for the first time with expensive progressive glasses that's not even working as expected. They refused to return or replace free of cost(Pay lens price again)-I gave up with costco and would buy somewhere online
I was kind of surprised that Costco analyzed my lenses and offered to re-do them because they were a little stronger than the Rx. Ultimately it probably won't make a big difference and like you, next time I will probably try online instead.

I did recently purchase two pairs of bifocals from EyeBuyDirect. I am quite pleased with them, seem to be every bit as good quality as those I have bought at Kaiser Permanente optical and they cost me a total of $120 for the two pairs. If you use them, be sure to look for coupons before you order, as that took about $50 off my bill.

Quote from blahbooboo2 :
How does the procedure work as you age? Lasik etc can have issues I read as you age because your eyesight starts declining they have to do more and more adjustments to try and fix it.
I had my PRK about 13-14 years ago and it's still working pretty good. In the past 3-4 years I have started to notice some halos at night. They aren't bad enough to keep me from driving, but I am thinking about getting glasses for night or maybe a laser "touch up".

Strictly from a cost perspective, the PRK was much cheaper than 13 years of glasses, not to mention the amount of hassle it saved me from having to wear them. Totally worth it for me, but it's not for everybody.

Another aging issue a lot of people don't think about is future reading glasses. Everyone needs reading glasses as they age, roughly starting around the mid forties. If you have astigmatism, your reading glasses are going to be expensive prescription reading glasses (like $600) and most people lose them. They aren't like normal glasses you put on and wear all day. You are always putting them on to read things and taking them off when you are done. Which is why people lose them all the time.

When I got my PRK, it wiped out my astigmatism. So instead of expensive reading glasses, now I can use cheapo pharmacy reading glasses. I buy them in bulk on Amazon at $10 for 6 pairs. Every few years when I have lost them all, or if I need stronger ones, I order another half dozen and scatter them around my life (car, desk, bedside, etc) and I don't care if they get lost. It's pretty convenient.

It's different for everyone... IIRC for me I had sore eyes for about 3 days, and I was driving within about a week. Eye drops from the doctor takes care of the sore eyes, but yes you might need to coordinate your vacation time for PRK. Your vision takes a few extra days to stabilize and every day you wake up you can see a little better than the day before.

That's why most people choose LASIK - no recovery time and instant vision upgrade. But it comes at a cost, which is a slightly increased risk of complications. Knowing what I know now, I would choose PRK again in a heartbeat and I would never do LASIK.

Quote from donldmn :
Zenni makes you pay for return shipping while eyebuydirect doesn't.

The quality seems generally the same for comparably priced frames imo.

I did have an issue with Zenni selling a pair of frames that were a few mm smaller than described which essentially made them children glasses. I should have read all the reviews since most of them were complaining about the same thing. I guess it was within their margin of error though.

It's more of a gamble buying frames online since it can be difficult to see their actual size. Zenni does an exceptionally terrible job of providing any sort of scale to compare their glasses to. They are all shown against a white background with absolutely no images of people wearing them. All the images are also not sized relative to each other so a pair of really small children glasses can show up bigger than adult sized. It's also not that easy to use the measurements to estimate the size since frames only have certain measurements to go by and in many cases they don't tell the whole story.
They give you the exact measurement specs for each glasses though... Unless you're suggesting that they can be inaccurate? I ordered glasses last week that looks exactly like the frames I wanted from Warby Parker with EXACT same measurements, except the ones here are 4x cheaper. So I guess I'll find out then whether Zenni is complete off...

While the measurements can be slightly off in some cases that was not the point I was trying to make. Some glasses have lenses that are not a perfect square or circle (aviators) the measurement of the lenses in this case are at the widest part of the lens. Some glasses are designed in a way that makes them seem smaller or larger than the measurements even though the measurements are correct.

Basically all I'm saying is to read the reviews and factor in the possibility that the glasses you order might not fit like you wanted when purchasing online. In this case their return policy is 50% cash or 100% store credit (you pay shipping in both cases)
