I used Clearly for a couple of years but when they were bought out by a large frame manufacturer their prices increased substantially.
I have ordered many pairs from all the major online "offshore" players (Zenni, Googles4U, Eye Buy etc). Overall I have been satisfied at the price I paid. Several of the frames where definitely poorly constructed but the sellers always stood behind them and took them back. Lens quality has been fine except for one order from Zenni that was screwy, which they refunded.
On average a pair runs me about $100 -120US, all in. Quality wise the frames are probably a step below what is sold locally but not enough to justify the price differential for me.
Shipping has always been quick, maybe 2 weeks on average.
One wish would be to purchase professional measurement only services locally as I use progressives.
Not looking for a freebie, I would be prepared to pay a comprehensive fee of say $100 to have a service do this.
Right now the general business model is for the Optometrist to check eye health and do the prescription and opticians do the fitting measurements and dispensing.
That model doesn't suit my needs.
I pay the optometrist for his services. Why can't I get, at whatever an appropriate price point would be, a comprehensive health, prescription and fitting service? I'll look after getting the appliance at the dispenser of my choosing.
