Review – Professional Black Rectangle Prescription Glasses

There are some days that I can’t be whimsical.  (Boo!)

For days like that, I wear this pair, my most recent purchase ordered online from ZenniOptical.  The frames were $23.  Total drive-out for the frames and progressive bifocal lenses was $52.

I don’t have a picture of myself wearing these, but this pair is currently my best go-to pair of progressive bifocal glasses that I ordered online for days that I have to wear prescription glasses and I need to “dumb down” the fun 50s part of me.

To the left is the way my Zenni Optical Prescription looks after I put in all the information about my eyesight.

Here is another pair of serious glasses for the boardroom.

Review – Brown and Clear Rims (Unisex) Prescription Eyeglasses from ZenniOptical

Brown Glasses - Actual - Frames $27

These are my all-time favorites…I adore these frames from ZenniOptical.  They are also a pair I paid more than usual for.  The frames were $27 and I ordered a higher grade of lenses.  Total for progressive bifocal lenses that were upgraded to 1.67 Digital Free Form Progressive (No-line multi-focal) which cost a little more.  Total drive-out for these prescription glasses were $97.

They don’t look like much in this ad, but you can see that they look differently on me.  I think they look better on me than any other business/professional frames I have.

Review — Texas A&M Engraved Maroon Game Day Glasses (

Love these glasses for Fridays (Game Days). They are great to wear because they have large clear rims and I had them engraved! They are prescription glasses, progressive bifocals, and engraved - $67.Glasses for Fridays at TAMU (Game Days). $47.

These glasses  are so much fun for Aggie football season. Love wearing them on Fridays in town and on campus for game days.  Aggies like Aggie stuff!

They are lightweight and easy to wear because they have large clear rims (doesn’t obstruct my vision)–PLUS, I had them engraved!

My fun Aggie maroon/clear glasses are sturdy prescription glasses with progressive bifocal lenses, and they are engraved on the side (“Gig ’em Aggies!”). The frames were $15.95. With the progressive lenses and engraving, total drive out was less than $67–INCLUDING express shipping, and they were delivered in less than a week.

I was in a bind when I bought these. I needed glasses fast because my right eye was developing a macular pucker and my retinal doc prescribed eyedrops that I could not use while wearing contacts. I had called the local eyeglasses outlets in College Station because I needed glasses in a hurry. I was told by all of them that my progressive bifocals would take three weeks to arrive. I know from experience that progressive bifocal eyeglasses cost $300 to  $500.

I decided to see how fast Zenni could get them to me. I was shocked that they offered express shipping and that my new glasses would arrive in less than a week — all for $47 plus express shipping and handling which was $18.95. (Regular shipping is either free, or about $5. They have always been delivered within two weeks.)
