Bad deal if you have high prescription. Around $124, much more expensive than something like Clearly

Computer glasses? do they offer those block Blue Light, Anti-Glare lense?

I ordered on July 2. Until now, i still haven't see my order move. Email them and they said they cannot fulfill my order because i request progressive lenses at this time. They should fix their website instead of wasting people time

Thumb down of kits

Nothing special. Just regular lens with prescription for close range. My regular progressive glasses are -3.50 for far range, and -2.50 for close range. The new Kits glasses are -2.50. If I want the blue light thing, I can run an app. to alleviate. I run f.lux on Windows.

I'm finding there is really not much for smaller faces. Basically two options and even then they are a bit bigger than what I already have. I might wait to see if they get more frames in.

it seems you wasted their time as it clearly states "At this time, KITS is not producing bifocals, progressives, or prescription sunglasses" right from the linked page.

I don't need new glasses but I'm always worried if I break mine I'm going to be in trouble, especially when traveling, so I ended getting a pair. I also went with the Blue Light filter because that might be useful for me with my sleep disorder. I already use F.lux on the computer but for televisions and other sources of light like lamps and ebook reading, it's not possible to alter them for me. Looking forward to trying them, Gale was the only model I thought looked ok.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to try them out. I ordered without the coating and it came to $ 12.60 Canadian all in. If they are any good at all this is a gift!

I normally wear progressives, but for playing tennis, I don't need the reading part of the prescription. So I ordered a pair on the 6th, it shipped on the 7th and arrived today. That's damn fast. They won't win a fashion award but for limited use and/or backup, they are fine. My total was $29.90 USD (shipping + anti-scratch/UV/etc... bundle).

LOL, Am i? I went through the checkout without problem. I know nothing about progressives blah blah lens. I just put my # in the boxes. I don't even know i am ordering progressives lens. They said because i put +1.5 so it is progressives.

They should stop me at check out and saying they don't offer that measurement in the checkout process

Also, they should tell me right away after order placed. Instead of i email them after a week asking what is going on with my order


THUMB DOWN on website and customer services

I find it funny you are down voting their website because it wasn't designed to protect you from yourself since you clearly didn't read or pay attention to what you were doing.

I wish they had 1.74 compression, the highest they offer isn't thin enough for me :(

Got mine. Not bad. Frame is larger but that's all they have. Will order again, specially if they offer lower priced high index lenses.

I've never bought from Kits, but the 1.67 high index lens material would be the same as what Nikon would use. What would be different would be the quality of the lens surfacing,if a digital, aspheric or spherical lens profile and quality of the non-glare coating. Of course the optical centre placement is critical in stronger Rx's. Nikon would also be using proprietary software to model the lenses during surfacing.

I got 1.67, no qualms. It's a quality lens.
