Glasses for $1,800?!?
Amount: $1,800.00
Posted by: Brenda in Georgia in Carrollton, GA.Posted: November 16th, 2015 05:11AM
Type of Frame: metalType of Lenses: unsure
Store: independent
My 76 year old mother was charged $1,800 by a local optician for her glasses. Unless they were gold with a few diamonds thrown in (which they weren't) I can't see how that amount is justified. She doesn't have significant eyesight issues.

New presciption - new glasses
Amount: $606.00
Posted by: Joyonfire in Virginia Beach, VA.Posted: May 21st, 2015 01:05PM
Type of Frame: PlasticType of Lenses: Progressive, Trivex, anti-glare
Store: Beach Eye Care
I had my eyes examined here and also purchased a pair of glasses here.
I kept asking the sales clerk about the cost of different items (ie the frames, the anti-glare) and she never gave me a straight answer. It was like talking to a used car salesperson.
Side note: Discovered I cannot use the polycarbonate lens. I had to have Trivex lens, so, that was about $50 more than the polycarbonate lens, no complaints about being able to see!
Can anyone in Virginia Beach, suggest where I can I find glasses cheaper than $606?

Type of Frame: standard ovalType of Lenses: readers
Store: target
I've not ever had the benefit of terrible eyes. Now at age 48 the quote I got was OUTRAGEOUS. I bought readers....I've been blessed with wonderful eyesight until now. Save your money and buy some quality readers, I've since gone on line and bought readers of a variety of color choices and styles for approx. 12 each. 580.00 with bells and whistles, no thanks, my grandchildren like to investigate my purse and I prefer to put my money toward other things. I wonder how dentists and Optometrists stay in business with these costs?

I had my eyes examined by my doctor, then took her RX to the Eyeglass Factory. The cost was $170.00 cheaper then Lenscrafter! I broke the frame five months later and they replaced the frame free of charge, because it was still under warranty! I've had no problems with their workmanship. Lens were
as prescribed.
