I am not sure if I like my new glasses but they were 680 dollars less than my old pair.
I last got glasses about 4 years ago at a time when I had the money to spend on a nice pair of glasses, my last pair I had got for cheap and it had only lasted a year. So I went all out with name brand frames (ralph lauren) progressive lens, blah blah.. 700 bucks!
Now its a few years later and they are scratched to shit despite the special coatings and the paint is coming off the frame. So I decided to go cheap again. My wife has a decent optical plan so I used it to get the most basic frame and lens there are, my out of pocket cost was 20 bucks!
i was trying to get as close as a look as the old ones as I could. I knew the frame arms for the new ones were not as wide but I did not notice that the old lens were more rectangle than square compared to the new ones.
