:Any, ANY suggestions would be extremely welcome! Thanks folks.
Good advise on Zenni! I use their glasses for several years now, before I bought a few from 39Dollareyeglasses as well. They are all well made and I have had not any issues with them.:
If you have the prescription and you like they way they work, get a pair through Zenni or some other online company. The price is right and you enter your own prescription. It'll take a couple of weeks for the glasses go get to you unless you pay for express shipping, but the price is right and the quality is better than the price would imply. You need to know your inter-pupil distance and be able to enter your prescription in their form. Look on Youtube, there are vids on how to measure your pupil distance and how to use their website. It's a good $40 stop-gap to get you through till you save up for a full exam & glasses which will likely run you $400. Basic CR39 lenses are fine unless you have a prescription over 2 diopters... then you'll need high index and the price goes up. They have similar frames.
