My last pair of glasses were about 300 GBP, 650 ish Canadian Dollars. This is insanely expensive for eyewear, so when I came across this post from 3mew I was intrigued.
Zenni had a couple of titanium, hingeless frames. I priced them out. I decked them out with AR coating ($4.95 compared to $50 in the stores), a clip-on sunshade ($3.95 versus $70 in the store) and went to the optional higher-index (thinner) lenses. Total?
Wait, 81 for glasses? That’s pretty damned cheap! 90 ish Candian. As it turned out they were decent quality too. I know what I’m going to be doing next when it comes to eyewear – online shopping.
