Best place to buy prescription glasses online?

I have been to several sites as I just got a prescription from the optometrist and a couple pairs in the store. I'll get them in a week or so and if the prescription seems right I might get some online.

To those who have done this: which online retailers have quality glasses at low low prices?

I like Frames Direct. I've even actually been to their offices in Houston. Bought multiple times, glasses came with warranty card and everything. Although, it's the same thing as if you would walk into a local optical store, just with lower prices. If you're looking for one of those $8, shipped from China knockoff places, I can't help you.

You can try a free pair from
You just pay for the shipping which ranges from $5 to $15.

#6 is the best deal, but i wouldn't call them high quality frames. More like the quality of gas station sunglasses.

One piece of advice: your PD is not part of your prescription, but you need it to buy glasses (it is the distance between your pupils). When you pick up your glasses, ask them what your measurement is. You can measure it yourself, but it is a pain in the butt.
