[Ed. Note: This is #4 in the "Glasses Stories" series. Melissa is wearing, holding and supporting her eight pair of glasses from various online retailers.]

Months ago, my husband said "Hey! I saw a thing on boingboing today that might interest you." $25 and 3 weeks later, I had a great new pair of glasses from Goggles4U. I ordered another pair from 39 Dollar Glasses, and was just as happy. And for a while, that was enough. But the lure of perfect frames was strong. I now have 8 pairs of regular glasses and 2 pairs of sunglasses. Every time someone compliments me on my frames (and it happens often) I say "I bought them online." The person is usually interested and skeptical, so I explain, mention the low cost, and tell them about Ira's blog.

Thanks, Melissa!

I am completely and totally envious of Melissa's collection of glasses!!! I own three pair, all purchased at retail outlets. (boo, hiss) When I first found this site I promptly got a copy of my prescription, took all my eyeball measurements and attempted to purchase glasses online. Each time I was met with some message that my prescription wouldn't work with the frames. Feh. So disappointing. I love wearing glasses and like having a selection of fun frames to choose from each morning. I would be OH! SO! HAPPY! purchasing online if I could just figure out why my attempts to make online purchases aren't working.

Head over to the GlassyEyes forums and post your prescription information. I'm thinking you're possibly getting hung up on your optometrist's shorthand.
