I hate buying new glasses. I hate going through the exam. I hate trying on all the frames. I hate the outrageous costs associated with it all.
So, I've stretched every pair of glasses I've ever owned as far as I possibly could.
But the time had come. My wife couldn't stand looking at my old frames anymore. I needed an upgrade, but I wasn't sure where to go.
Then a friend of mine told me about Zenni Optical. Zenni is a web based company that offers a full range of prescription glasses at ridiculously low prices. It was started by a couple scientists in San Francisco. You may have seen their Facebook ads and not even realized what an awesome company this is.
The website looked good, but I was a little skeptical at first. Could you really get glasses as inexpensive as advertised. And if you could, I figured they would probably be pretty junky. Bad lenses, cheap frames, incorrect prescriptions. I wasn't ready to take the leap until I felt more confident I'd be getting a good product. But when my friend got her pair of Zenni glasses in the mail she loved them. The looked great and worked just as well as advertised. I decided to give it a shot.
I went to the Zenni website and spent about thirty minutes browsing the many frames available. It was easy to upload my photo so I could see how the frames would look on my face. I used the online tools to measure the distance between my pupils. I was even able to save a few of the frames I liked so I could review them with my wife later. We picked a pair, answered a few additional questions about the upgrade options I had, and made the purchase. My entire purchase was less than $45 and I even received a code for 10% off my purchase.
In less than two weeks I received my new glasses and I am super impressed! I wore them to work today and I've already gotten compliments from my co-workers on how great they look. It will be easy for me to recommend Zenni to others and I am already thinking about going online to order another pair.
For a guy who hates buying new glasses, Zenni Optical could be a game changer!
