Of all the frugal sites I have told people about, this one meets with the most disbelief and skepticism. I first heard about it on the Money Saving Mom's blog, and then a friend had also used it, so I decided to give it a try. It is Zenni Optical.
At this site, you can get prescription glasses - frames and lenses both - for as little as $10 shipped. No kidding! For real! I, like many people, have spent hundreds on glasses. But my husband, myself and my son all wear them, so that could get very expensive very quickly. Thank goodness for Zenni! It's cheap enough we each have a back up pair, where before I would wait YEARS to get a new pair of glasses.
So I have ordered several pairs from them, the glasses are great, the frames are fine, they seem to last, the prescription is done well. All you need is your prescription and your PD (pupillary distance) which you can get from your eye doctor.
You can upload a picture of yourself to "try on" different styles of frames. You can search by price, style, color, material, men's, women's or kid's. Then you can save your favorites and compare them.
For us, it has worked great! Check it out!
