But if you have to wear glasses, you might as well make it a fashion statement. These affordable websites can give you hip glasses for less.

Roy Hessel, founder of the website EyeBuyDirect (, says “the ability to see shouldn’t be held at a premium when it’s such an integral part of our daily lives.” This mission statement is reflected in their product: affordable and trendy frames. The most expensive pair that EyeBuyDirect offers are $70, which totals out at around $120 with the price of the lenses. Just punch in the details of your prescription from your eyecare provider and you’re ready to checkout.

Zenni Optical ( is another spot for frames that suit any style. Their slogan “trendy, not spendy” is projected in their insanely low prices. They have an entire tab on their website dedicated to $6.95 pairs of glasses.

Like EyeBuyDirect, enter the details of your prescription and check out.
