Lensway: A new retailer combining style and price

I’ll give you a little insight into the world of product-related blogging. I get a lot of emails from people wanting to pitch their product or company. Most do so politely in a private email. Some spam up the comments. Nine times out of ten I say no. Well, more like 99 out of a 100. But 90 of those are companies selling male enhancement pills. The other nine are legit companies offering quality products but I feel they just don’t fit in with what we do here at getbetterglasses.

And that one out of a hundred is a good company offering a nice, relevant product. The last new company I mentioned was glassesusa (click to see my glassesusa post). That was more than a year ago. I’m still loving their glasses and still wear them every day, by the way.

So here is today’s company: lensway.com. They sell deeply discounted designer glasses as well as some very cheap house brand glasses. Until now, I have seen companies offer either very inexpensive own-brand eyewear – ala eyebuydirect, 39dollarglasses or much more-expensive (but still nicely discounted) designer eyewear like bestbuyeyeglasses. glassesusa caught my eye with their more mid-range self-branded glasses. Lensway is catching my eye because they are the only retailer i’ve seen combining designer and mid-range generic eyeglasses. Prices start at about $35 (realistically $65 with thinner lenses and all the coatings) but range all the way up to several hundred for a fly pair of Gucci. They have mid-range designers like Oakley as well.

Since they are the new kid on the block, they’re offering a generous 25% discount. This offer will be around until the end of the month. I don’t know if it will get extended or not.

One thought on “Lensway: A new retailer combining style and price”

  1. I ordered from LensWay less than a month ago. Their website was very easy to use and offers a lot of search criteria to narrow down the choices of eyeglass frames: size, shape, color, brand, price, etc. I also found their prices very good! LensWay offered some designer name frames I saw on other retailer sites, but LensWay’s prices where at least $100.00 less! Entering my script and choosing lenses and coatings was also very easy.

    I purchased Lucky Brand Maude in Cranberry Brown. Although I have a fairly high script (I usually get high-index 1.67 lenses) I opted to go for the basic lenses LensWay offered at only $9.95. Anti-glare, anti-scratch, and UV protection coatings are included for free. What I wasn’t in love with was the fact I was charged for shipping AND a separate handling/insurance charge, which together was about $10.00. Not a huge deal, but why are those separate?

    My glasses came in just under a week from the day I ordered! Crazy fast. They’re beautiful. The lenses are cut very well and are clean, crisp, and scratch free. Since I opted for basic lenses, I was pleasantly surprised the lenses did not stick out of the frame, nor were they heavy. The script is right on, and I can see perfectly out of them.

    Also included in the box was a hard-shell case, a soft drawstring case, a microfiber cleaning cloth and metal eyeglass screwdriver/keychain. Hooray for freebies!

    Great prices, great selection, fast delivery, nice freebies… I have no negative things to say about LensWay! These are my new favorite glasses! Highly recommend!
