I have frames but need new Rx lenses put in. Excluding Costco (i know Costco is cheap) which Brick and Mortar will be cheapest for new lenses? I know some mailorder companies already. Look for cheapest retail besides Costco. Thanks

When I needed to have my progressive lens replaced in a hurry and could not wait 10 days to get them, I tried Lens Crafters. They had a lab on site and I could get my prescription filled in an hour. I took an old spare pair of glasses in and asked if they could replace the lens with my new prescription - nothing fancy like ultra light weight lens or anti- glare or special coatings. Just the least expensive lens as these would end up being a spare pair once my new pair of glasses with all these "extras" arrived.

With my AAA or AARP discount I got a 15% discount off of the "lens only" price. Ended up costing me $112.

My lens only price with all the "extras" that took ten days to arrive from my local eye place cost about $400.

Progressive lens are expensive and the price difference is due to all the extras I needed for the frames I would use most of the time. But, if you need glasses in a hurry and they are going to be a second pair and you can skip the extra light lens/anti glare stuff - stop in to a Lens Crafters and ask them to quote you a price.

I am sure that if I had asked Lens Crafters for an identical lens the price would have been closer to my local eye place - but, since they would end up being my spare pair I just needed a basic lens to get me thru a few weeks until my other glasses arrived.
