I was about to ask the same thing. My insurance covers $200 for "prescription eyeglasses and frames," and a local stockist with a good selection says they can fill prescriptions from outside optometrists.

What's up with that?

just call your insurance and check, sometimes there's a separate amount for lens and frames. in my case they will cover $200 (take the total for frames + lens + exam subtract $200) and then i pay the rest.

but check your insurance, you might not even have eye coverage if you don't need glasses until now.

workable semi-nerdy eyeglasses?

IMO, I wear the Salt Oslos. They are geek chick but still conservative. Try them on, they are comfortable.

Just checked with Aetna (PPO), and they told me that I just have to send a copy of the receipt to get reimbursement

Salt Optics or Moscot, here I come

When your optometrist tells you that you dont need glasses, it might mean that you have a mild prescription. Go back and get your eyes examined and tell them your situation and that you can see better with your friends rx.

ALSO, if you do photography for a living, I would suggest you get glass lenses. It is not as safe as polycarbonate, BUT your vision will be much better. Most stores probably wont even sell them to you for liability but still, glass will increase your vision to it's max. I have a diamond dealer that will ONLY use glass lenses and for good reason.

A store will fill the prescription regardless of where you got the frames. My only concern would be if they will re-imburse you for the frame if you buy it online. You should call them and see if they will re-imburse for online purchases. BUT if you want the glasses that bad, just pay for the glasses out of pocket and get really good lenses in the eyewear.

After learning about Mykita frames through this forum, I just recently bought my first pair. I absolutely love them, and they're quite different from any glasses that I've had before. This is the model that I picked up, but in a graphite (essentially grey) finish:

Anyone know what kind of glasses these are or recommendation for something similar? I like that they are a bit more square.

I just met with Dmitri from Spectacles for Humans. He showed me some awesome Mykita frames. He is bringing more down from SF soon. He has a small studio shop in Downtown LA. Will keep you guys posted.

Hello,

This is my first post. My apologise if this not the correct place to ask this. Please feel free to educate me.

My daughter is spending some time with and she´s looking for a Tag Heuer frame (or similar). Could anyone advice me where I can get in San Francisco these kind of frames with lenses in 1-2 days max? Of course she has another frame that needs to have its lenses replaced by new ones, she has myopia.

Thanks for the help

Jose A.

Don't be scared of change. Switch them up with a heavy thick frame or full frame. You will enjoy them.

Is the brand Gold and Wood recommended?
