I did hear from customer service at optical4less.com today for my price quote. This was much faster than past experiences. I will post updates as things happen so others can see what my experiences are. My special order is 20 base down prism in 1.8 mineral glass lenses. Iím ordering 2 pairs, one with grey tint and one with brown tint.

The Best Places to Buy Glasses Online (Review)

Optical4less website just came back up today. Like others, I have ordered in the past and been really happy. I just sent a message through their support custom orders message feature to see what cost I will incur with my current order.

Iím ordering 20 base down prism to assist in reading since Iíve got degenerative arthritis in my neck making it very difficult to read or use ipad or phone.

In the past, it took about a week for them to reply. So I expect this again. My last order took a month and Iíve never had fast service from them but for me, the quality is worth the wait.

I tried the GlassesUSA Prescription Scanner app, and boy was it infuriatingly frustrating! I think I read somewhere that it only does prescriptions between -6 and +3, and that is no joke. I tried it with a pair of glasses in the +10 to +15 range, and could not get the target images centered properly while also keeping the targetsí inner circles in the frame. As you can imagine with such a high plus prescription, the slightest movement of the glasses in front of my computer screen resulted in too much chaotic movement of the images through my lenses.


Cactus Jack 28 May 2018, 18:47

Jo,

If you paid by credit card, I suggest you check with your card issuer to make sure that if O4L has shut down, your card has not been charged for the glasses.

Jo: I hope that your order didn't get lost in an overnight business closure. Keep us (or me, at least) posted of any developments. Thanks!


Jo 27 May 2018, 12:21

Hi Patrick, I also wear myodiscs, and placed a order 3 weeks ago, but now there website is gone! And I get no response on my messages


Patrick B 27 May 2018, 10:35

Hi Jo:

I've noticed that their selection of frames has somewhat diminished over the last year. That said, I have always thought that their craftsman was excellent. I wear myodisc lenses and found their responsiveness to any of my requests to be spot on whether I wanted negative carriers, blended bowls (of whatever size ordered) etc. I hope they haven't tanked, because they've been a very valuable resource to me.


Jo 25 May 2018, 10:48

Does anybody know why the opticall4less website is offline?


JC 18 May 2018, 03:28

GlassesUSA claims their app can "scan" your lenses to read your prescription, like a lensometer. I haven't tried it yet, it will be interesting to see if that could work.

Why are you constantly putting stupid greetings in each post? It's no wonder they are mocking you, you pretty much deserve it. Greetings are for letters, not message boards. Welcome to the Internet.

People can mock me if they wish. I will not apologise for good manners.

Re. my last post, sorry I didn't type what I meant

When I said, "Regarding me people interested in your posts, I can't speak for others, but I am happy to read them.", I meant to say, "Regarding people being interested in your posts, I can't speak for others, but I am happy to read them."

Sorry, not sure how I managed to type what I did.

Lou 29 Apr 2018, 02:34

Hi again Weirdeyes

Regarding me people interested in your posts, I can't speak for others, but I am happy to read them.

I read your last post about your vision therapy appointment. I didn't comment on it, as I had nothing useful to say.

Best wishes

Lou


Lou 29 Apr 2018, 02:32

Hi Weirdeyes

I didn't think it was you. I don't hate you, and I wouldn't imagine that anyone else does either. A lot of us have been victims of trolls on this forum.

Take care

I suspect that it is Weirdeyes.


Lou 28 Apr 2018, 04:38

Someone obviously feels the need to follow each of my genuine posts with a fake post purportedly from me, copying just the greeting part of my post.

Presumably they have some kind of psychological issue which makes them enjoy doing this.

It is quite obvious to anyone who posts on here, that anyone can post under any ES Nickname.

Why anyone would want to impersonate another in this way is quite beyond my understanding, and frankly I'm not interested in knowing their reasons.

Hi TonyLids

You are very welcome if I have been of any help, but to be honest I don't think I suggested a company.

That you have found one that can help you, is however all that matters.

Thank you for that. They were expensive but can do exactly what I need

Re.:

CLWEASAY 25 Apr 2018, 12:24

that does not answer my question Louise.

If this post is actually from CLWEASAY, which it may not be, considering that trolls keep impersonating people on here, the reason why it does not answer CLWEASAY's question, is because I was answering Tonylids questions, hence starting my post with "Hi Tonylids."

I'm however presuming that it was just a reply from a troll, as it was pretty obvious to whom I was replying, and I'm Lou not Louise.

Best wishes

Lou 25 Apr 2018, 05:49

Hi Tonylids

Rather than your prescription. The problem you ate probably experiencing is that at least in my part of the UK, Opticians are not keen on reglazing frames from another optician. For example, neither Specsavers or Boots would reglaze a Vision Express frame, whereas Specsavers have always reglazed frames which I have bought from them.

Lou


CLWEASAY 24 Apr 2018, 21:58

where cam i buy contact lenses online without a prescription??


Plussichic 24 Apr 2018, 11:09

Try ASDA, they managed with my +16.75

Good luck


Tonylids 24 Apr 2018, 10:48

I hope someone can point me in the right direction

I've had all sorts of trouble getting some glasses reglazed. My prescription is +11.75 in both eyes with an add of +1.75 and every optician from my local Specsavers and Boots to various online companies are saying they can't do it.

The current lenses are pretty much the same strength so obviously the lenses exist but the company that supplied them (Specsuperstore) has been taken over and the new people there are somewhat less than helpful.

Please could someone recommend a good optician either online or local to the South East of England (Kent) who might be able to do this for me.

Thank you

Has anyone ordered from this supplier before? The name is a new one to me.


noname 05 Mar 2018, 21:48

A close friend of mine has a prescription of OD -15.25 x -1.50 x 136 and OS -13.00 x -1.75 x 005 with a +2.50 add. I have not yet measured her PD, but for sake of pricing and availability I have chosen 62mm. Zenni will not provide this prescription in progressives, although they have a good price for 1.74 single vision lenses. Firmoo will provide this prescription in progressives buy I have no idea of the thickness of the lenses. The price from Firmoo is too cheap to be a hi index lens. Does anyone have any idea where else I can go to price these lenses -and frames


EyeTri 22 Feb 2018, 03:57

Stingray,

I recently had Replacement Lens Express replace lenses in 3 of my frames. All were done well and quickly.


Mike 21 Feb 2018, 17:47

Stingray, I have used www.lensesrx.com in the past with very good results.


Stingray 21 Feb 2018, 14:17

Does anyone know of an online eyeglass retailer that will let the customer supply their own frames for new lenses?


RWalkerman 21 Feb 2018, 12:32

Got a great pair of single vision glasses with prisims from Zenni however it appears they do not do progressive lenses with prisims. Any suggestions for a discount online source for progressives with prisims?


Danbert 30 Jan 2018, 06:59

Bobster,

I tried Opternative once. The result was inconclusive though - for some reason they couldn't generate my prescription. They gave me a full refund of course.

There are various SMS services online which allow you to "receive" a text message to a US number. Some are free and an be used for this purpose as the text messages don't contain any personally identifying or sensitive information. Search for them and you should come across one that works. That's what I did though I can't remember now which one I used.


Bobster 19 Jan 2018, 17:44

Hi

Anyone used Opternative or other online eyetest from the uk. I no you need a USA mobile, but thought you could probably input any mobile number from the web for an appropriate state. Surely it would work and prescription would then be given online?

Thoughts?


Weirdeyes 07 Jan 2018, 23:45

What happens if you order a prescription with plus cylinder instead of minus cylinder when thereís extra charges involved. Letís say someone has an rx of sph +7.00 cyl -2.00 and they order sph +5.00 cyl +2.00 instead. Will they get still get charged extra?


Weirdeyes 03 Jan 2018, 01:00

Why does Zenni Optical have prescription ranges for so many frames? This makes sense for odd shapes and sunglasses, but I see this a lot in normal looking glasses.


Jonathan21 28 Nov 2017, 16:11

I am 21yo college student, recently got new prescription R -14.75 L -14.25, which is about 2 diopters stronger than the last one from Jan 2016. Since I have really big head (thus need wide frame) and don't have money for fancy extremely high index lenses, yet still hate super strong lenses, I was thinking about getting myodiscs online. Could you recommend where to start?


Weirdeyes 05 Nov 2017, 21:54

Cameron

Those frames say the prescription range is -20.00 ~ +4.00. Which really doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure making +5.00 glasses is way easier than -20.00.


Soundmanpt 02 Nov 2017, 10:53

Cameron

Very interesting! I just tried entering your prescription also and got the same message as you did for some reason. I'm not sure why that would be a problem? I actually ordered the same frame (the $6.95) for a friend of mine. Her prescription was -1.50 for both eyes and she wanted them made as prescription sunglasses and she loves them. That'a a very good looking pair of glasses for such a cheap price. Maybe give them a call and ask why?
