Need To Buy Glasses?

Today I visited It's a site specializing in the sale of prescription glasses. It looks like they've got a huge selection. One of their products I'd never seen before. It's a set of glasses that has corrective lenses behind darkened outer lenses, the kind you'd find in a pair of sunglasses. So if you needed reading glasses, and liked reading outside, you'd slap on a pair of these and be good to go!

Let's see, I didn't know there were so many types of lenses to choose from! ZenniOptical has photochromic or "sun sensor" lenses (the ones that darken in sunlight), plus tinted, bifocal, progressive, and single vision lenses too. And tons of frames. Plenty to choose from.

You know those commercials where all these people are so pleased about being able to get prescription meds starting from $4 at Wal-Mart? Well this site is kind of like that. It offers prescription glasses at low, low prices. Their slogan is something like Zenni Optical: Sell Rx Glasses $8 with case!

How can they justify such prices? It's easy. They make the frames themselves, and don't involve middlemen. So when you buy from them, you're buying direct. That way, there's no store owner raising prices to justify carrying the merchandise. What's more, ZenniOptical apparently has a super-slim ad budget. So they don't have to make up for a million-dollar Super Bowl ad by charging you $800 for a pair of shades!
