Ted Murphy's Vision Restored My Sight

My glasses from Zenni Optical arrived yesterday. Last night after work was my last time to wear my sunglasses on the drive home. I felt like an idiot wearing them each night at dusk and then having to go inside places wearing my sunglasses. I felt like I was looking “too cool for school” or something.

But because I ordered some glasses from Zenni Optical, a place I would not have heard about had it not been for Ted Murphy, I had quality prescription glasses waiting for me at home. I attribute this to Ted Murphy because he had the vision to found PayPerPost and subsequently IZEA and all of its holding. I had heard about Zenni Optical from many other bloggers and I even blogged about it on more than one occasion, but I hadn’t had reason to try it until now. Well, now I have a pair of glasses from Zenni Optical and I love them. The total cost of the pair of glasses was $39.95. You may also recall that I had my prior pair of glasses sent out for new lenses. Yesterday I called Pleasant Optical, our family eyeglasses store for years, to find out why my glasses were still not back. I was told that they would call the manufacturer and get right back to me. I called again that afternoon to find out that my particular lenses were on back order. So lenses that I ordered before my Zenni Optical Lenses are still not in. On top of that they are going to cost me $239.95 a full $200.00 more than my Zenni glasses. Guess what mistake I’m not ever going to make in the future.

Now Ted, the only thing I ask is that you get Zenni Optical on the Social Spark affiliate program.

    Glad to hear it Ted, I think Zenni Optical would be a great fit for the affiliate program. Once summer comes around I’m getting sunglasses from them too.

    I dont use sun glasses nor do I use reading glasses. I have found that doing yoga eye exercises for the eyes helps

  4. Great post Drew! I really like that your glasses are barely noticeable – to me, that’s always a sign that the glasses are ‘right’ for the person :)

    Thanks Heather, I am still getting used to them but I like them a lot.

    Those look really nice! I say cancel those backordered lenses! Get more glasses from Zenni.

  7. Drew says:

    Unfortunately the other ones are already ordered Anna and it is a local shop that we’ve done business with all our lives so I’d feel really bad about ducking out on the transaction.

    That is an amazingly low price for a complete pair of glasses. The last time I bought glasses, they cost around $200, and that was at Sears with a coupon special. My prescription at a place like Pearle or LensCrafters would be at least $100 more…I checked. I am very curious as to what my glasses would cost with these guys.

    After our new and improved health insurance kicks in next month, I need to get my eyes examined anyway. I’ll definitely give Zenni Optical a try. Who knows, maybe I’ll now be able to afford frames in all different colors! :D

    Thanks for the review!

    Christine, the price certainly is low and the glasses have been great so far. They even e-mailed me to confirm my prescription because it was an odd one.

    Thanks Brett,
    The shirt was something I had started thinking about at IZEAFest and has now become my IZEAInsiders group name and mantra. Although there should be a “…” at the end and on the back it should say “…Yet!”
