I need to update my eyeglasses. My everyday glasses are about 8 years old. They are scratched up badly. It effected my everyday life.
This is a big project, I need to:
- Get new prescription
- Buy several eyeglass frames
- Get lenses.
- Tint selected glasses with desired colors.
I hope to spend less than $400.00 for everything.
Most people spend $300.00 on one pair of eyeglasses. I am trying to take care of several pairs of eyeglasses (plus an eye-exam).

Costco comes short on frames:
Costco has good, quality eyeglass frames. But it's not easy to satisfy picky customers like me. I don't see any frames that will fit my ugly face. Also, Costco only carries high quality brand name frames. That's why I had to go online.

I am still shopping for glasses. I believe I spent over $600.00 so far. I will have less than 10 pairs of eyeglasses when I'm done with this project.

Oh boy... I have 11 pairs of glasses now. I think I'm getting a few more. I spent roughly $700.00 so far. I hope I don't go over $1k.
If you know me from this website, I tend to get obsessed over everything I do. I can feel that my phase for eyeglasses is almost over.
$1,200.00+ later... project completed
