Buying Glasses?

My eyes have been bothering me lately so today i went to the optometrist to get my eyes checked out and lo and behold i need glasses, when I looked at the frames that they had they were either grandpa frames or hipster looking things, neither of which i could get much use out of. (for work i have to have rather plain glasses, brown/silver/black and not be bulky) I stopped by the vision center at walmart and they were either like at the doctors office or really expensive so i ended up ordering a cheap pair from Zenni Optical's website, but im hesitant to see what kinda quality it is going to be. Where do you get your glasses from? Any Recommendations?

    I got mine from the eye doctor. They have non-slip ear pieces, got them like 3yrs ago and still hold in place. They are Cruz brand. Walmart is generally more expensive than the dr.
    Dont know if that helps or not.

    I wear me glasses about 30% of the time. Knowing I wear them often, I kinda go all out when I get a new pair. My current pair are Ray Ban. I got them because the case make an excellent travel case for smokes.

    I have to wear mine full time or I can't see anything clearly beyond about 6 feet so I tend to find the pair I like and fits well and spend what's needed. My current frames are Prada (didn't know that until just now), but I had some raybans I really liked last time. Got them from the eye doctor's office. Always take a chick with me, either the one I'm dating or one of my friends.

    My last pair were Prada. I still like to wear them when I feel like being fancy schmancy.

  • Costco fr the win. I'm an old rusty gun so I don't out a ton if money into it. The doctor is spot on and caught something the health care doctor didn't. Plus try take my insurance and are located anywhere I want to be. Next year is eye surgery or motircycle. Looks like glasses again next year.
