First time purchase, faulty prescription
First time purchase with Zenni -a pair of frames with 1.67 lenses and the standard anti-reflective coating (total AU$130.42). Ordered on 10/07/15, shipped on 20/07/15 and received on 3/08/15.
I can't see through these glasses and I'm questioning the accuracy of the prescription. I'm wondering how qualified are the staff who work in their laboratory because this is the first time I've encountered this type of problem. I've been wearing glasses for nearly 30 years and in that time I've purchased glasses in store and online through various provi...
My new glasses are excellent
I am a first time customer of Zenni, I was going to order 2 pair but decided to test one pair out first, I didn't have my glasses for more than 2 hours before I purchased another pair, I tell everyone I meet about my fabulous prescription glasses.
100% Titanium frames, multi focal, photochromic with anti reflection coating, even with the AUD at 74c they cost $160 with postage.
Great job Zenni
Have go reading glasses script wrong twice
I have been buying from Zenni for 4 years now, and initially they always got the script right. Unfortunately the last two orders they have sent long distance glasses instead of reading glasses. The multifocal glasses are great, but having spare long distance glasses is useless. Aqua and oil fobic coating is great. Price is great. When they used to get the script correct on the reading glasses I was a very happy customer. I don't recommend Zenni to other people now as they are too hit and miss.
I recently ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses and a pair of distance glasses. I ordered with some trepidation but figured with such a cheap price it was worth the risk. I am very happy to say that both pairs arrived within a couple of weeks and completely exceeded my expectations!
Whilst they are unlikely to have the durability of my $300 OPSM frames for 1/10 of the price who cares?! The prescription is perfect and I couldn't be happier. Will definitely order again.
Outstanding value, posted promptly
Cheap, but not long lasting
If you know your script, and know how to work out your PD (no point in asking the optometrist for the PD because in my experience the assistants in the front office will give you a wildly inaccurate figure), you can order from Zenni. You can even store your scripts at their website for easy re-use.
Within a week the glasses come by courier to your door, all the way from China. Quality is very acceptable (I am wearing them now!). Edit: they now take up to a month to arrive.
Total savings can be up to 90% compared to local optometrists. I will never order glasses again locally.
Edit: see my comments below for the small print. Buyer beware.
Low Prices, Quick Delivery
Poor quality on some components, one month warrranty
Perfect better than From optician
I very warily purchased multifocal sunglasses from Zenni. My prescription glasses in Australia cost $450-$480 even with the supposedly one pair free offer due to the cost of the multifocal lenses. I wanted an extra pair. For $80 I got multifocal sunglasses from Zenni and thought that if they were no good it was no huge loss. They arrived very quickly maybe 10-14 days and they are fantastic! Better than the ones I got here from the optician. I don't use the $400 at all now
Inexpensive, quick delivery
Very happy with Zenni
Recently ordered "computer" glasses.(close reading plus computer viewing but no long distance). Very happy. They provide a formula for you to do this based on your script. I was worried whether I'd get it right but tried and was happy.
Quite a good choice of frames.
Able to try on with own photo.
Can save prescription.
Can save favourites to compare and while thinking about which one to order.
Good choice of lens types plus optional extras e.g. tinting, coatings etc.
Good customer service.
Then stepped on glasses and broke...
This is my first pair of glasses online and the result is nothing short of fantastic. I'd bought progressives over the years through the local shop which charged around $800+ per pair.
This time, I couldn't find any frames I liked under $450 which is totally ridiculous.
The Zenni frames were under $30 and all up, the progressives were $110.
They are very comfortable and well-made.
Comfort, ease and variety of selections, efficient service.
Can't argue with the price
Zenni's are great, I've tried a few online shops and these are wicked!
customer service good, shipping excellent, quality excellent!
I asked a question about the transitions about there cheaper alternative, and got an honest answer!, they said its not the original Transition brand, but much cheaper and it changes a little slower.
So i bought them and they are great!!!!
Maybe a little light for the frame
Zenni Optical is the cheapest place to find glasses without costing you a fortune
Have ordered from Zennioptical a few times now and haven't been disappointed at all.
the last pair of glasses I purchased, including the clip on polarising sunglass, was $53 delivered! Not even scrooge himself would argue with that price!
the site has hundreds of different frames available and there is a facility to upload your picture and try the frame on to give some idea of how they would look on you. It's not perfect, but you do get some idea.
There are different types of lens available also, so there is a lot of choice for everyone.
The glasses are assembled in China and delivered by Fedex. Typical turnaround is 3-5 days, or at least that's been my experience of the timeframe.
After spending $520 on a pair of glasses only to loose them several months later, I discovered Zenni Optics. Now I can afford to have multiple pairs of prescription glasses at a fraction of the cost.
Price, thousands of frame types, qualityt (did I mention Price)
Takes you ages to choose what type of frames Too much choice.
