Lenses for Glasses
I need to change my glasses and I'm currently shopping for which stores (lenscraft/hakim optical/costco) I should go to and etc. I need both sunglasses and normal prescription glasses (single vision).
For the longest time I've been going to lenscraft and usually getting both around $600 - $800. Back then I had insurance and I really didn't pay much upfront. Now, I have no insurance and I'm just looking at shopping for lenses. Lenscraft quoted me like $700 if I bring in my own frames which is a rip off.
My own issue is I don't mind paying $200 - $300 per a single lenses but I never shopped outside of Lenscraft and I really don't know the difference between lenses material. I'm not exactly sure what to look for.
Anyways, anyone have any good independent store they go to for some good lenses ? I've been hearing good thing about Costco but haven't really check it out and from what I read, it super cheap. Keep in mind, I would prefer I would like have all the features that Lenscraft were able to offer. Now, I now it's a marketing scheme so bare with me.
Thanks in advance.
