Another on bites the dust: Part II

So, a couple weeks ago I posted about breaking my glasses here

This is my guide to buy glasses online

Well, I did some research and I looked up a few glasses sites 
I really liked the styles at Zenni Optical and the price was tough to say no. 

A few tips:
1. Your optometrist has to give you your prescription
2. Make sure you get your pupil size; you literally can walk in and get it in 2 mins for free
3. Make sure you measure your face

All frame size dimensions measured in millimeters
Lens Width: Horizontal measurement of one lens from the widest point to the widest point.
Lens Height: Vertical measurement of one lens from the lowest point to the highest point.
Bridge: Measurement of the distance from the inside edge of one lens, across the nose to the inside edge of the other lens.
Frame Width: The full width of the frame as seen from the front
Temple Length: The length of the temple arm from the front of the frame all the way to the tip at the end of the earpiece
Frame Weight: Overall frame weight in grams with a 1.50 index lens
Frame Dimensions

This is information from the Zenni website. Each pair of glasses is categorized at small, medium, and large. Than has the sizes for each category to give a snigger fit. 
4. Don't be cheap! These are your eyes, pay extra for anti-glare or smaller frames, etc. It is worth it

I ordered the Tortoiseshell glasses # 256325 and I love them.
I am blind and usually require very thick lenses which come free, I could never afford the thin lenses before but with the extras my glasses were still under $50, which is awsome in my book.

Where do you buy your glasses?
