Good looking reading glasses on the cheap - Clark Kent Status?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im looking for some clark kent esque glasses ( I have to get reading glasses, low perscription of 0.75). I like the rayban wayfarer style (this seems to be the most similar) but am unsure as of to what size to get, and what model. Also, can I just buy the sunglasses online and then get lenscrafters or someone else to make perscription lenses? Or will this be more expensive? I want the cheapest route possible.

They dont have to be raybans I suppose either

Honestly you can get reading glasses at any drug store for 30 or 40 bucks, sometimes cheaper, just get a +1.00 since they probably wont have +0.75. If you do go the route of buying sunglasses and having lenses put in DO NOT go to lenscrafters for their lenses, you will spend way too much money. their lenses start around $200. Any independent eyeglass shop should be able to do those lenses for around $80. Also for your prescription just get a plastic lens, dont spring for polycarbonate. The clarity in CR39 plastic is way better and in your Rx weight or lens thickness wont be an issue. But Id say get over the counter ones like:

Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Eyeglasses RX5184 with Rx Prescription Lenses FREE S&H RX5184-2000-5018-SV, RX5184-2000-5218-SV, RX5184-2012-5018-SV, RX5184-2012-5218-SV, RX5184-2282-5018-SV, RX5184-2282-5218-SV.

for size go with something similar to the size of your ray bans, look for the numbers ie. 52_20, 48_22

Should be on there, if the frame is similar shape it should fit similarly, however that is not an exact science so trying them on in person is highly recommended....
