There are several different ways to handle your new eyeglass prescription. The first is to buy an entirely new set of glasses, frames as well as the lenses. The second it to keep your original frames and just get new lenses through the mail. It is no longer necessary to have the optometrist’s office do the ordering for you. You have your choice of providers, and they can as long as the shape of your glasses are standard.

Find cheap lenses for glasses by simply shopping online and seeing who can refurbish old lenses or create new ones for a given shape and prescription. There is little obstacle to doing this because the prescription is the only thing that needs to be set by an expert. Lenses are made with smart machines that simply receive a shape and lens setting and does the work like a robot should. This could mean huge savings if you order direct.
