Updated February 11, 2017: We have liked 39Dollar glasses so much that we just bought our third pair. I purchased a second pair of the gold ones above and we just purchased a second pair of something similar to the black ones above. Very pleased.

Let me just start off by saying that I couldn't be happier with my glasses! I have a pair of 39DollarGlasses and so does my husband. This review is for my husband's glasses but I will include some info on mine as well.
The quality and stability of both pairs of glasses are high end. These glasses are every bit as nice as the pricier "designer" glasses at the eye doctor. Actually, when my husband went to get his prescription the pair that he liked was one of the designer pairs that cost the most. (What can I say? We like nice things!)
When my husband picked out his glasses from 39DollarGlasses, he already knew the style that he liked. This DOES help when ordering glasses online. My suggestion is to go to a local "discount" store that sells glasses and take a look. Try a few pairs on for size and style and see which style you like the best.
The size of the glasses is usually on the inside of one of the arms. See those little numbers? They mean something! Who knew? I have a pair of glasses on that say: 52 17 138. That is not a lottery number (unless you win and share with me) it is the "size" of my glasses.
You will also need to know your prescription. There are several different numbers on it that are important. My prescription is from a few years ago but my eyes haven't changed since I was 17! Praise the Lord! Of course regular visits to the eye doctor are important. I think they like to say every 2 years is how often to go.
Another thing that the website walks you through is measuring the distance between your pupils. ...weird.. I know but necessary. I have a clear ruler that I got at an office supply store and that helped a lot. Of course, you can use any ruler with milometers. I was able to hold the ruler up to my husbands eyes and SEE what his measurements were. Easy peasy!
So, what do you need in order to successfully order a pair of glasses online?
- You need to surf around 39DollarGlasses.com
- You will need to know what your prescription is.
- Have a good idea of what style and material you like (plastic or metal?)
- Get your numbers off of a pair of glasses that fit you well. Make sure they don't fall off your head or squish it!
- You will need a ruler to measure the distance between your pupils (from the center of each).
I am very happy with both pairs of our glasses from 39DollarGlasses. I recommend this company on a regular basis to the people at our church. $40 for a pair of quality glasses is a fair deal.
