I use the flex account to pay for my glasses. I'll check out frames direct....how can you make sure they are the right size for you? I always have to try them on.
I'll stick with my progressives, with occasional tweaks in the prescription,
even if they do cost Big Bucks (especially since I got titanium frames).
You can save a fortune by buying your frames at framesdirect.com, for instance, I once did. Vision places are willing to fill your rx if you bring in the frames. I once worked for an optician; the markup was obscene.
We have excellent vision coverage, but with high end designer frames (which are pretty much all manufactured by Safilo), high index Varilux Elipse lenses with anti glare and edge polish and custom clip on shades, I end up spending a few hundred any way, of a total closer to $1000.
They are spendy. I'm due for new ones.
i have a narrow face, and only some frames work for me
then, i have an astigmatism, and they need to take measurements for that
further, for the varifocals, the optician measures WHERE the 'vari' belongs
i've looked on-line and i've never seen a place to measure the distance between each pupil, for centering the correction, nor for measuring where to adjust for the astigmatism
