    I'm about to pick up some new glasses and was wondering if anyone had some recommendations for a good eye place? I already have the prescription just need to get it filled and pick up frames. I might just pick up the frames online and have them make the lenses. Let me know if you have a good spot!

    I just order cheapies from Zenni optical online. Downside is obviously getting a good fit. You have to measure pupillary distance (easy) and then get a good nose and temple fit.

    all ophthalmologist written prescriptions should have all specs for the glasses

    zenni optical will call the doctor and ask what the prescription is

    Cool. Didnt know that. My doc scribbled it out intentionally sloppy it seemed so it was difficult to read and tell where decimal was.
