place to replace prescription lens

does anyone recommend an online store or local place that can replace eyeglasses lens for cheap? I was at lens crafter and some asian places at parker places, and they were asking for 150+ just to replace the lens.

I got a pair of old eyeglasses that I like, but don't wear daily... they were scratched pretty bad during a hiking trip and now they are left collecting dust.

I'm sure there is a more affordable way and place to get lens replaced?

If it's possible for you, anywhere in Asia.

Exactly the same thing happened to me, locally they wanted $180 minimum just for one lens.

I gave it to a friend travelling to Korea along with my prescription and they replaced both lenses for the equivalent of $35.

Not poor quality either.

^ yea they wanted 150 at clearly contacts cause they said it was not part of their inventory so they would have to get it 'custom' fitted

Clearly Contacts on Robson will only sell lenses if you buy their frames, I called them and asked before when I was looking to just replace lenses too.

Most of the places I called locally that would do it wants $150+.
