Prescription glasses and sunglasses from US$17 posted to Australia!!!

1 July 2008

Zenni Optical offers completes lenses and frames from the crazy price of US$8 with shipping to Australia a flat rate of US$9.

I've linked to the review of this company I wrote below but if you can't be assed to read it I'll just say I am extremely happy with mine and will be getting a couple more pairs with tinted lenses for outdoors.

    This link might help: ]Essential Baby Forum I, myself am a happy customer. It seems like complicated prescriptions have more room for error. Straightforward prescriptions, regardless of strength seem to be good. Astigmatism prescriptions are good. Sunnies (tinted) are good too. It seems they do some grinding for extra $, so if your prescription is strong it might help to pay extra for that. I have no hesitation buying from them again, and have recommended Zenni to everyone. :D

    Bought a pair of Bifocals. They were around $30, manufacture was fine, just dont like bifocals, so for $30 found out something that would have cost me hundreds to find out. Finish was good, with a higher script meaning thicker lens, the supplied lens were bevelled at the edges which gives the illusion they are not as thick and they placed the lens in the centre of the frame, again reducing the thickness impact. Something my local budget eyewear store said they couldn't do. All this from a cheap supplier!!! Will definitely use again when I need a new pair again. Just be sure that the optometrist gives you a script that is fine. Again my budget eyewear script was a bit off, I went to another optometrist for a second script and used that for the order.

    nice bargain there dustbunni! It's a shame the dollar is so bad, it was worth US97c when I ordered! Im still happy with the two pairs I bought, I've been looking at buying from Zenni again for sunglasses but couldn't actually find anything I like so will report back once the others are here :)

What do you think?
