19 Hip Budget Frames For Four-Eyes Like Me (And A Giveaway!)

Question: Would you buy prescription frames online? What if you could buy your frames and your lenses for less than $100? Is it possible to be trendy and thrifty at the same time? These are deep questions. No they’re not.

In this day and age, when insurance coverage can be spotty and over-sized nerd glasses are suddenly way cool, purchasing budget-priced prescription frames online seems like a rather smart idea, doesn’t it?

It’s pretty simple: You go online, select your frames, upload a photo of yourself for a little virtual try-on session (these are so fun, I once spent three hours trying on every pair of glasses one web shop stocked; it was oddly relaxing), plug in your prescription information, and presto! It’s (fairly) easy to forward your receipt on to your insurance company for a full or partial refund, in case you do have coverage. (You know, as easy as those things ever are.)

After the jump, I’ve compiled a few of my favorite budget friendly prescription lenses–all of them available online and with lenses for under $100. You’ll look smart and be smart! How fun is that?

Plus, I’m giving away a free pair of glasses from BonLook right HERE! Find out more after the jump!
