Whenever I buy new prescription glasses I can’t help but feel like I’m being massively ripped-off. It seems like you can’t get out of any store with something stylish for under $200. That’s why I was so interested in trying out Spex Club—they have a great selection of designs and their pricing structure is insanely awesome. I mean, $78 for prescription glasses and $58 for just frames (sunglasses too)? That’s how it should be dammit.
So, the question is—how’s the quality? Pretty awesome actually.
The metal frames I ordered, in terms of overall quality, are comparable to any pair of expensive glasses I’ve purchased in the past. They’re comfortable to wear and Spex followed my prescription information precisely.
The only problem is that you can’t try ’em on before you buy—so, if you are unsure about what kind of glasses would look good on you, it would be a good idea to follow the tips in the “Fit Guide” section that’s included with each design on the website. You’ll also need to pay special attention to the “Measurements” section to make sure that you select a design that will fit properly.
However, to offset this Spex offers a 30-day return policy if you aren’t satisfied.
For me, Spex Club’s pricing has opened up the possibility of owning several different frames just to shake up my look now and then. I just wish they did something with contacts because that’s another bs racket.
I should also mention that they still offer the occasional sale despite having such low prices. Right now they are offering 30% off all sunglasses (including prescription) using the code “spexysunnies” at checkout. Hit up the Spex Club website for more info.
