I was thinking that at under $10 a shot, it makes sense to first order a pair of glasses from the likes of G4U to ensure that the frames fit and the Rx is correct. Then if that doesn't fit or work out one can afford to experiment, again at $10 per. Finally once one has all this worked out one can spend more on fancier frames, more options like tinting, etc. The cheap pair remains useful as a spare pair in any case. And if G4U is as flexible about dealing with, um, misfits ( ) as reported then the cost of experimentation may even be free.idiotcanuck wrote: ↑Oct 1st, 2017 9:59 amTrue. Eating a $10 mistake is not a big deal. Comparatively
Funny that the hardest thing about ordering glasses online is visualizing the frames and how they will look and fit. Even if you do a bunch of due diligence, beforehand, it is still a bit of a crapshoot. I guess that is why the return policy is so reasonable.
It's occurred to me that I should have done that with the glasses I ordered from Zenni. It's my first time ordering glasses online, so that would be a cheap way to confirm that I got stuff like PD correct before committing to a more expensive pair of glasses.
Of course all this takes a bit of patience. But if the glasses are to replace an existing pair then time is usually not that critical.
