I use Zenni Optical for additional pairs. I have a relatively straight forward issue (very mild astigmatism). I don't do transition lenses or scratch resistance, etc. I bought 3 pairs of frames for $6.95 each and another $15 per pair for the prescription lenses. My mom who is low vision buys her glasses from them as well and saves hundreds of dollars per pair.
I want to order a backup pair from Zenni if this first pair from a local optician's ever gets made correctly. I know that the Zenni website lets you put in your prescription. Do they require a copy of the written prescription as well, or do they trust you? I think Walmart requires a copy of the written prescription (not sure about that).

I have never ordered from Zenni, so I cannot speak to that. I do know of ONE website that lets you gets *contacts* without a COPY of your prescription (you still have to know it) called SaveOnLens.com

Not sure if you'd be interested in contacts, but it's there for you if that's something you'd want.
