After seeing Dean and having him read all of the previous posts over the Memorial Day holidays, he chose the Moscow frame with the CR-39 Transitions® Sola® lenses. I've got a degree in English (not Math or Finance), so after I prepared to call in my order -- more about that later -- I was surprised and a bit worried I'd forgotten something when the price came to $174 rather than the $209 I was expecting.

I talked to Dean a bit about the price, concerned that it might be too much and he replied, "They'd run me between $500 and $600 in Alexandria." I've become so used to prices in the sub-$50 range with my single vision prescription, I needed a bit of a reality check it seems. He was thrilled with the price. [Ed. Note: Alexandria is a wonderful town in the heart of lakes country in Minnesota].

So I got his information and placed the order on Monday. I had to call, because the 39DollarGlasses ordering system doesn't allow for a prism to be entered. This is a disappointment for me as Optical4Less' system handles it nicely.

I spoke with Lauren, who took the information and entered into the system. I got an order confirmation email immediately which did not include the type of lens I ordered or the Prism. She said it might not show up correctly, so I wasn't worried. I did however use their contact system to verify that they were indeed included in the order. I got a response within a few hours confirming.

They need to upgrade the order system a bit for my liking.

I received an additional email yesterday stating that they'd be shipping within 2 to 4 business days. I'll let you know how they work out, next week -- through Dean's eyes.

What do you mean by a prism? On my scrip, the dr. wrote on the OS line 1/2 with an arrow pointed up, is this the prism?

Yes, that sounds like Right 1 prism up, Left 2 prism up.

They turned out perfectly. He had his eyedoctor adjust the nose pads (he's not the biggest DIYer I know). I thought I wrote that up! Did I miss it? Checking...

Thanks Susan!
