New Glasses… the Vlog…
I decided to make my first Vlog today to show off my new glasses from the online glasses store “Zenni Optical” …
Hope you enjoy it!!
and yes… you heard right… with 9.95 of shipping to Canada (only 4.95 to the US), the total cost for 3 pairs was 42$

You know, I’ve always wanted glasses! I look at the frames in the shops longingly but alas I have perfect vision. BUT… my husband does wear glasses and is in need of a new pair. His last pair was over $400 so saving over $350 and getting two extra pairs is very appealing. I just have a hard time wrapping my head around WHY they’re so cheap. How can a company afford to make money off that…. what are they paying their workers so that they can sell them this cheap?
Kim, you can get them with non prescription glass in them too 🙂
I think there are a few reason that they are so cheap. The main reason is that the glasses come from China. Usually that would make me think twice but then I thought about it… The frames and lens that my local optometrists have most likely come from China too but are just assembled here. Another thing is that because they are an online store, they don’t need that many employees, the costumer does all of the work, they don’t have an actual brick and mortar store to pay for, they don’t have to buy any frames upfront and they have a considerable amount of customers.
Also, Glasses are horribly over priced to begin with… it makes me think of fountain soda… a bag of fountain soda flavouring costs about 10-12$ and comes to pennies a glass…. a big chain might sell that glass for a dollar, a smaller restaurant 2$, a bar for 3$ and an amusement park for 4$… It is all about profit… Especially here in Canada where there are not as many discount places, glasses cost so much because they can. They can charge whatever they want because people that need glasses will pay it…
