I picked up a pair of rimless glasses, including shipping and all of the coatings I got them for about 22$.
Being that I do not like paying 500$ and up for glasses at lenscrafters I figured I would give it a go.
Another benefit is I was able to pay through paypal, so they don't have my credit info, which makes me feel a little safer.
Call your eye doctor. By law they have to give it to you if you request it.
They request the measurement for the optical center, and I've bought glasses at many a retail shop over the years that didn't bother worrying about temple length and bridge size. These can't be any worse than what many people live with...glasses bought from Wal-Mart or the equivalent.
I bit, got my new prescription yesterday and having searched and already found a pair(http://www.coastal.com/glasses/frames/joseph-marc-4068-blue/prod24122.html) I ordered a set. Pupils weren't too bad to measure with some help, not a one person job if your blind with out glasses on. So far there are a couple of cons though. You really have to watch what lens they select, they priced a $70 set for me but I was able to pick the free ones and the shipping/delivery date has changed from 2/7 and 2/10 to 2/9 and 2/14 with no notice being sent to my email.
Total cost was $9.95 for shipping.
