What is the best place to buy glasses (lens and frame) from? Need to get some soon, but totally have no idea where the best buy is.

I guess it really depends on where you are located. I have heard that walmarts optical dept is good and reasonable. but here in Delaware I go to a placed called halpern eye.

I don't know where you live but took my DD today to eye express.  Got an appointment (same day) and was able to pick up her glasses in less than an hour.  Insurance covered ours but they seemed to have good prices on frames.

 I go to America's Best Glasses and Contacts.  Got two pairs with the scratch resistant stuff for under $150 including the exam.

Order online! I buy mine from

I have an astigmatism so it generally makes my lens a bit thicker. I have never had a problem with this site. I also live in Alaska so shipping here can be a joke; flat rate shipping to all of U.S.. Hundreds of frames to choose from and lens options vary as well.

Shop around. Find somewhere that will do a twofer. Like yep pairs for $100 or something. I love those deals because then I know I always have a backup pair incase something happens to one pair.

I've gone to several places-the big chains and local places. They all seem about the same to me.
