Worst ever. Did not deliver even after a month and a half
Delivery not carried out and told me that it's with Hong Kong post or Australia post. Such a waste of my time
Great glasses - delivery fail
Love the glasses. Paid for quick delivery but didn't get that. Spoke to online support and she said the glasses would arrive the next day. They did. Asked for a refund on the extra delivery cost but have heard from no one until being asked to do this survey. Please refund my express delivery cost.
Don't use Zenni
Filled in the form on the internet and ordered 3 sets of glasses. They arrived in good time, but were completely wrong. It took 3 emails and 2 phone calls to USA from Australia before I was told that the data I inserted was incorrect even though it matched my prescription.
The worst quality I have experienced
First set broke six weeks they then sent a replacement frame only to experience same thing typical made in China rubbish will buy local and pay a higher price would not recommend this company or buy from them ever again.
I used to love Zenni but the last two pairs of glasses have not been right and they are so difficult to get an exchange.
I have used Zenni for over five years and in the past the products were great, I have had a few wrong things but it was always my fault. however the last two pairs of glasses have been totally the wrong prescription. I was very disappointed and for the first time expected them to exchange them for correct
ones, it was hopeless they always try to say it was my fault and I will have to send them back at my expense then they will inspect them to see if it was my fault. never again Zenni.
KEEP AN EYE OUT OF THE EXCHANGE RATE
I was excited to purchase a few pairs of zenni opticals today but now I'm devasted at the surprise I got when I paid for them. Just to make it clear zenni opticals should advertise that there will be an exchange rate of American dollars at check out. I paid $122.00 for two pairs of glasses off zenni opticals and it exchanged to $180. I'm not going to dispute this because it is still a good price for a pair of prescribed glasses, otherwise, I am disappointed that I should have been notified at the beginning of the purchase, not the end.
I give this rating a 1 star.
They got the lenses on the wrong sides and for years I thought my eyes were the problem...
I sent my prescription in and got the glasses back ok. Tried them and gave up really quick. I thought it may take some time but I didn't see immediate improvement as others talked about with their first pair. I tried three wore times over three years and same, they did nothing. My right eye needs no correction but the left does - a lot. I thought the optometrist got it all wrong so I went back after 3 yrs for a re-test and my eyes weren't too much different. I went home and the wife pulled out the old glasses and said ' try turning them upside ...down and whalla!! success. Thye had mixed up the lenses and put them on the wrong side!. So tonight I tried to contact them and was on a chat with a condescending Joseph who stated they were past warranty - really thanks Joseph and also told I should have noticed this immediately and let them know - thanks to Joseph for your advice!. So this guy suggested the issue wasn't with them and needed to see the original prescription - somewhere deep in the pile of stuff - no chance.. Well just warning you all to be careful as this is a rookie mistake to get the lenses wrong. Never again. We have bought four paris for the family and can't risk this rigamarole. I have bought directly from a retailer (Specsavers) yes for extra $$ but they will gladly fix any problem without being condescending.
I wish I could review the glasses - regrettably I cannot because I did not receive anything. A month ago I got notification that they had been shipped via Landmark Global. Clicking on their tracking number led me to a NZ Post tracking number giving their location as Mt Wellington, Auckland as of 22nd August. Inquiries with NZ Post revealed that they do not have a depot in Mt Wellington and had no record of the shipment entering their system. They suggested I contact Zenni. I did and they said WAIT. Disappointed.
Slowing down :(
I have been a customer (in Australia) of Zenni for quite a few years now. Satisfied with quality, price and delivery times....up until today. My last order was.... 'received 2nd October and....delivery within 14-21 days'..... OK fine. 10th October..... 'Order has been shipped'. RECEIVED today (Brisbane Australia) 5th November :( Not good, even from China. I followed the glasses progress through the Tracking site(s) and the biggest delays(s) was at the China end, Hong Kong etc. Aust Post when it finally received the small parcel did their bit quite promptly. Not impressed this time ZENNI....:(
If I could rate less than a star I would
The glasses they sent were useless. They sent me frames with flat lenses with no prescription in them. Literally made no difference, their website screwed up twice once on the prescription and once on the postage I selected. The arms of the glasses touch the pathetic excuse for lenses and they do not transition in the sun as I ordered. And let me just say they did not end up any cheaper from zenni than they would have been from any walk in store in Australia.
Don't bothered ordering from them
Zenni is based off Hong Kong even though it is suggested in the USA. The package was sent from Hong Kong, which I never received after waiting for many weeks. This is a waste of time, without knowing the quality of their products.
If you have a script for multifocals or progressive glasses then go somewhere else. Zenni will get your script wrong. They simply do not know what to do. Huge disappointment Zenni Optical.
Stupid to go anywhere near Zenni Optical
Ordered Zenni Glasses in September 2015. Returned twice because they are WRONG - still no glasses. Customer Support NIL. Just don't bother. It's not worth wasting time, and money posting things back again and again and them still being wrong. Save yourself a lot of grief, and sanity by just going to your local optom. Shouldn't mislead consumers by even PRETENDING you can do multifocal lenses.
1st pair great next 3 pairs unwearable
The first pair were fine but scratched awfully and were unwearable after 7 months
The next pair were fine for a few months then plastic frames broke total loss just out of warranty period.
Next pair for family member, lens mounted at an angle made her dizzy feeling and unstable on feet, Next a pair of computer glasses with wrong prescription unwearable.
Zenni had no interest in helping outside the 1 month period
By the time we and cost from Australia for them to fix it is cheaper to go to the local discount optometrist and that is exactly what we have done and will continue to do in future.
Apparently, they have an acceptable "margin of error"
Shoddy work not worth the cheap price. We ordered two pairs of glasses with an identical prescription. We received two pairs of glasses with slightly different prescriptions.
When worn, one pair would result in slightly blurred vision, dizziness, etc so we took them to an independent retailer and sure enough the axis on both lenses was off slightly (on the messed up pair).
We contacted customer support and sent the glasses back. After a month or so they came back to us (after we had to ask them what is going on) and said the glasses ...were fine. We asked about the difference in prescription and they said they would test them again. Finally got back to us that the glasses were within an acceptable margin of error. They have an acceptable "margin of error" when producing glasses to match a prescription.
