    ???

    Are you looking for correctional glasses or purely cosmetic?
    Are you looking for just the frame?

    I don't go online. But my best experience with prescription glasses is with a family owned local franchise.

    My worst was probably a cut rate place that gave a fake price by over estimating the the amount covered by the health insurance benefits then sticking me with the full price later on.

    Don't go to the mall. Lenscrafter did good work, but was expensive. Where I live, you can get an eye exam in one place and take the results to shop around. Wal-Mart may be able to get cut rate glasses, but I can't say much about the qualifying I haven't gotten glasses there myself.

    I recommend asking people you know and glancing over online reviews, but taking the latter with a healthy dose of skepticism.

    A friend recommended Kits.ca, no clue if their US operation is any good. She got a cheap price and was able to take measurements with photos. I still need to get a prescription though so haven't tried it.
