Prescription glasses online?

did a search and couldnt find what im looking for

have any of you gotten prescription glasses from an online store? i'm wanting to know of any reputable places to get a pair of frames and lenses online

any good/bad experiences? the prices ive been seeing are way cheaper than retail stores so im wondering whether or not the quality is the same etc.

please let me know of any that are good or ones i should stay away from.

+1 for clearlycontacts.ca

Just make sure you're sure about the glasses when you go to order, they don't have a confirmation page.

How did you choose the frames?

Go to the store and try them on and then look for a similar style?

TIA.

i've ordered numerous pairs from Zenni optical, as well as clearly and coastal contacts. Never had problems with any of them. For the latter two, check both sites as sometimes the US site is cheaper.
