Prescription Glasses 50% Off Total Order, $20 Single Prescription, $60 Progressives, Shipped To Canada

50%
Retailer:
Goggles4u
Goggles4U has their usual deals on prescription eyeglasses.
You can still get basic single prescription , UV/Anti Reflective/Anti Scratch glasses for around $20 shipped to Canada, by finding the best promo code for your specific purchase, but for more expensive choices like better or designer frames/progressives/transitions there is a global 50% off Promo Code of DN50 active now that drops the price on complete orders by half.
Not the best code for lower priced glasses, but very useful if you want one pair of Progressive/Transitions or other combinations. You still have to pay the $9.95 shipping to Canada, but that stays the same for multiple pairs, so it is advisable to sometimes order two pair at once on the cheapies.
Try different codes to maximize savings on your specific order.

I have been happy with my previous Goggles4U purchases, and just got a new prescription, so I ordered two pair of single prescription 1.57, half framed glasses with AR/UV/AS coatings tonight for $29.85 US shipped. Never ordered progressives from them though, and I would recommend caution in doing so since the fit may be crucial to your comfort with progressives. There is a reasonable return/exchange policy though.

Current Promo Codes:

50% Off - DN50

Buy One Get One - BOGO

Prescription Eyeglasses for $9 including delivery - GLASSES9 (higher due to Canada shipping)

Free Pair of Eyeglasses With $6.95 Frame, UV And Anti-scratch Coating, -1.57 Single Vision Lenses - G4UFREE

40% Off - G4U40

When you register they send you the promo code "WELCOME990" for your first pair at $9.90 delivered
Having just received my new glasses from newlook, therefore having a fresh prescription, I always wanted to compare with those cheap website so I just ordered a pair. I will report back with a comparaison when they arrive. Grand total was $80.45, used (all) code to find the best for me: "DN50" that reduced the price to $42.90 shipped. However, when paying I noticed the price (magically?) dropped to $28 usd (this is ~34$ cad). I won't complain ha! 35$ for glasses shipped to compare them to my usual newlook glasses, that sound like a good deal. I will report back!

Good site. Very satisfied with my order of two glasses made a month ago. I received my order within a week from ordering via DHL.

That really depends on your choice of better frames vs. the increase in price. The lens quality is good, but some of the $6.95 frames can be a bit simple. Look at some titanium frames if you want that kind resistance to bending and see if that works cost wise. Personally I try to stay in the lower cost zone and just consider the $20 glasses somewhat disposable, if they break or get damaged.

Our family has had several sets of glasses from Googles4U, some as cheap as $10. Quality is a bit variable, but usually ok, especially in view of the low price. In the past they used to ship mostly direct from Pakistan, which could take a while to get to Canada. Now it's mostly from the U.S..

They buy the same cheap frames from mass-producers and use the same prescription auto-grinding machines for lens-blanks as everyone else. The issues I've seen with them are:
- Lens edges sometimes not as smoothly finished as they should be
- Some lenses have had the coatings flake off
- The combination of certain lens prescriptions with certain frames may mean that you can't adjust the nose piece to have the glasses sit at the proper position, a problem that a local optician would have avoided or fixed
- Not entirely sure they got some of the prescriptions correct, e.g., my last set of lenses specified the same power for left and right eyes, but they are clearly different.

One annoying thing is that they do not confirm back to you the prescription you ordered. Unless you create an account, it is not remembered. After placing your order the prescription never appears again in the confirmation they email to you or the order form they send with the glasses, so there's no way to know for sure if your order was correct or what it was exactly a few years later unless you can check the order history for your account.

Yes they do. For single prescription 1.57 lenses, all three coatings together are a $4.95 upcharge.
I haven't had any coating issues on mine, but as above, I have heard of that complaint sometimes.

I bought glasses from goggles4u, zennioptical, and eyebuydirect and I find that goggles4u were easier on my eyes and had a decent fit. All three took about 1 week shipping to Toronto. I ended up buying 2 more backup pairs from G4U but I have been using the original pair for the last 3 semesters. I'm pretty satisfied with how cheap they are compared to hakimoptical or lenscrafters.

Thanks alot for the concise breakdown of the potential issues with G4U. Better that people have realistic expectations.
I have also had some edge chipping on impact with some of the glasses from EBD and G4U, but that is likely common with half frames and softer plastic lenses at all vendors.
I haven't had a G4U order sent from Pakistan in the last few years, all of mine were sent from the US. Of course they were a simple common prescription so they could still be making them in Pakistan and just stocking them in the US for assembly.

Would you be charged any duty/taxes since some people claim that its shipped from the US?
