Forum Archive

You're at the forum archive. The forums were taken down years ago due to some unfortunate astroturfing attempts by a couple retailers. At the time, I was very concerned about exposing readers to a bunch of input-that-might-be-fake, or creating a situation where the well-behaved retailers were at a disadvantage.

However, because a number of readers had posted helpful comments & reviews, and I didn't want to see it all vanish into oblivion permanently, I kept a backup around. What you're seeing now is that backup (almost 7 years old now - don't ask how I managed to get it running again...). Things are a bit scattered, and you can't post anything new (the buttons have all been disabled), but the original content is here if you're interested.

I ordered a pair of glasses from this retailer on March 12, and they were delivered within four days, on the 16th.

The glasses were just as good as similar ones I have purchased in the past from major retailers for anywhere from $200 on up (prices paid after insurance discounts).

I paid just $39 for these, including shipping, because I had a $5 off coupon code. (happy05 is the code. Not sure when that expires.)

The metal frames I opted for are very sturdy. The dimensions were just as stated on the website.

There were no scratches on the lenses (I got the clear ones, no tint).

I can see perfectly out of them, despite having an astigmatism, so they must have gotten the prescription correct.

My only regret is not having paid the extra $25 for the antireflective lenses. I got these as a spare, thinking I would wear them only when doing home-improvement projects so as not to risk damaging my primary pair, but wish now that I had paid the extra for the antireflective lenses because I really like them a lot.

I would definitely buy from them again.
