Does anyone know where to buy prescription safety glasses? It'd be a good gift for my dad who likes carpentry and he keeps using his regular glasses since he's getting older now and doesn't use safety glasses.

Found via https://www.google.ca/search?q=prescrip ... ses+online. I'd imagine there are more vendors. I'd also contact the usual suspects like Zenni and Clearly to see if they offer them.

You do realize that almost all the "high end" and "designer" brands come from the same single supplier as the cheap brands?: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/high-pres ... -1.1130610
You'll have to look around for boutique opticals that sell non Luxottica brands. Lots of very nice, unique independent frame lines out there that optical carry. Just have to look around.

Is there an easy way to find what can be used as prescription sunglasses? I found one that has 3 different tints, but there's only a picture for one. I can't seem to find an option to view the whole selection. Is there a way to do this?

I don't understand what you're asking. G4U lets you filter by a variety of criteria. Go to the Prescription Glasses page, then click on ▼ Filter.

Try the Search box, e.g. "tinted glasses men."

Or look for the glasses you want, enter Rx info, etc. At some point they'll offer options like coatings and tinting. But note their FAQ says, "available with 1.57 CR 39 Index Lenses only" so you may have to select that lens material before you see tinting.

And FWIW I decided not to buy prescription sunglasses from G4U because they don't offer polarization. That's an important feature that cuts down on glare, especially in bright sunlight on snow or water, driving, etc.

Would you be charged any duty/taxes since some people claim that its shipped from the US?
I just got a message from DHL saying I must pay $19 in duties,taxes and fees on a USD $40 order. Anyone else encounter this?

No never. As discussed early in the thread , glasses are exempt from duty taxes.

Call DHL and point out that the contents of the package is prescription glasses which isn't subject to duties or HST. There should be a customs sticker on the package that states the contents. (Otherwise how would they have come up with the value?)

See What's Taxable Under the HST and What's Not? page 6.

A little update: Over time I just wasn't completely satisfied with the fit of my progressive glasses. They were OK, and definitely usable, but just not perfect. So I asked for a replacement, and they did supply me with another pair of progressives in a different, larger frame of my choosing, and that seems to have, done it. So far, happy with the new pair and now I have a pair of spare progressives, that I can use, whenever, since they allow you to keep the originals.

Promo Code DN50 for 50% off is still active.
With current pricing, this brings progressives into the $35-$40 US range and progressives with photochromic lenses (Transitions) into the $45-$50 US range.
