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.

Has anyone checked the prescription of their online glasses? Forum Index -> Forum

I am very interested to know if online-glasses companies get the prescriptions and PD-distances correct. If you've checked your online glasses at a local optometrist please reply to this message to let me know if the prescription was correct or not! Thanks very much.

If you want to get your glasses checked at an optometrist try not to tell them where you got the glasses from (they'll get grumpy if they know you purchased online). Also tell them that you left your prescription at home - and ask them if they could right down the prescription of the glasses so that you can compare that with your prescription when you get home. That way you'll get 100% honest answers from the Optometrist. They shouldn't charge you for doing this, but if they do, it won't be very much. They have a machine that can find out the prescription of your glasses very quickly.

I have purchased glasses from Zennioptical and from 39dollar glasses recently. I'm suspicious that the lenses are not the right prescription for me so I'm going to get them checked out by a local optometrist and will post the results on this website after I do that.
