Not a lot has been said about GlassesShop, but the one pair of sunglasses I got from them has held up nicely and helped me through some very hot and bright baseball games the past couple of evenings.
If they have something you're interested in, here's a code for 15%-off good now through well... not sure when. There is no expiration date in the email.
Let me know what you think if you order from them.
UPDATE: Check the comment below. Seems like it might be a good idea NOT to try them now.

Could not get the code to work. Tried their live chat..no response. Called their number...said phone was turned off.
Too many red flags to try them!

i ordered a pair there earlier this week and have done so several times with no problems....however, it appears this code is valid only for glasses with animal print patterns that are more than a set amount (i think it was $35, don't remember though). they should be clearer on that

I just place an order anyway - I made a comment in the checkout that the code didn't work, and requesting that they return the $9 difference. I'll add any updates here! Thanks again for a great blog. Not many people wear eyeglasses, but for the millions who do, well!

I have no idea whether or not the code works now -- but, I did place my order two nights ago. That evening, I got an email from them recommending that I pick a different frame so that my prescription would fit better. I called the next morning, and spoke with someone there who helped me. Today, they adjusted my payment to include the 20% discount.

I placed an order with GlassesShop last October, but had communication and other issues with them. I ended up cancelling the order after two weeks, and did receive a prompt refund.
I have an "unbalanced" prescription [OD -9.00 / OS -4.50] which they wanted to verify - not unreasonable. The first problem was that, after they left me a voicemail, I was unable to reach them by phone.
After several days and numerous attempts, I tried online chat. They answered promptly, but the operator seemed to lack basic training. After much back-and-forth with a supervisor, this operator seemed to understand my prescription - issue resolved, so I thought.
Several days later, I received another email, this time trying to get me to buy two pairs instead of one, because they were still uncertain, and wanted to make and send me a less expensive trial pair first.
At this point, I cancelled the order. With so many other good online providers to choose from, I do not recommend this one.
